Part Three: “Freedom Can Be Lost”
In the third episode, host Peter Sagal sits down with The Plot Against America creator and executive producer David Simon to discuss Part Three of the limited series. Sagal and Simon unpack life under a Lindbergh Presidency, including Bengelsdorf’s “Just Folks” assimilation program, and the historical precedent of anti-Jewish discrimination in the US. They also delve into what it means to create a Jewish-American identity, and Anthony Boyle’s (Alvin) surprisingly good Jersey accent. The next episode of this podcast comes out after Part Four of the series. The Plot Against America airs Mondays at 9 PM on HBO. The Plot Against America Podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Studios.
