The Staircase

By iamtiredoftrying - Jan 11 2019

I have watched the Staircase and think it was very well done so well. I was very anxious to listen to the Podcast anticipating getting some great insights into the story, the process or other aspects of the production. I was totally taken back by the juvenile behavior of the two hosts. I think they thought the podcast was focused on how funny and clever they thought they could be rather than The Staircase itself. They were neither. This was the first Netflix podcast I have listened to. It will be the last if they are all hosted by these two. I hope not.

I Stan.
