HBO Max has launched its newest podcast. It’s called The Staircase, a companion podcast to the true-crime drama series exploring the life of Michael Peterson and the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen Peterson.
Host Nancy Miller (HBO’s I’ll Be Gone in the Dark Podcast) interviews both cast and crew to unpack how the true story was brought to life on screen, plus case experts and academics to dive into the science, history and psychology behind the case.
Episode one features executive producer/writer/director Antonio Campos, as well as Toni Collette, who portrays Kathleen in the series. Other notable guests joining throughout the season include Colin Firth (starring in the series as Michael Peterson), Sophie Turner, Parker Posey, and more.
You can listen to the first episode here, with episodes 2 and 3 soon to follow this week. Additional episodes will air on Thursdays, in alignment with the series schedule.
