#31 – The Plot Against America


Important links to support Black Lives Matter:




This week, Doc and the Maestro discuss the HBO miniseries The Plot Against America. The series, written by The Wire’s David Simon, is an alternate history that imagines the 1940 Presidential election of a fascist-leaning Charles Lindbergh and an America that does not go to war with Nazi’s. We dig into why Will loves this show and why it makes Joe feel “yuck.” We talk about political implications and writing about social systems without sacrificing character. This is a deep one so join us!
