Richard Gadd joins the show to talk about his new limited series, Baby Reindeer. Based on his award-winning autobiographical one-man play by the same name, the series follows a struggling comedian named Donny (Gadd), whose warped relationship with his female stalker ultimately forces him to face a deeply buried trauma.  Gadd describes throwing himself wholeheartedly into creating the series – from writing its seven episodes to preparing mentally and physically to play Donny. He also digs into the process of casting Jessica Gunning as Martha, unpacks the show's final scene, and shares a few of the surprising reactions he's received from viewers so far. Gadd also explains how being cast as Macbeth in his school play inspired him to pursue performing, recounts the intense moments leading up to his one-man show Monkey See Monkey Do at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and describes how the music of The Pogues has served as the soundtrack to his life.  Listen to more from Netflix Podcasts.

Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
