Severance Season 1 Finale | Michael Chernus Interview

Post Show Recaps presents coverage of “Severance,” the Apple TV+ thriller about the mythical and perilous work-life balance. Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) is joined by co-hosts Melissa Woodward (@MelissaW28) and Doctor Amanda (@DrAmandaR) to break down each and every episode of one of 2022’s buzziest dramas yet.

Adam Scott stars in “Severance” as Mark, an employee working for a mysterious company called Lumon Industries. He’s enrolled in the Severance program, which separates employees’ work memories from their personal life, creating a theoretically healthier balance that turns out to be much deadlier in practice. Created by Dan Erickson and directed by Ben Stiller and Aoife McArdle, “Severance” also stars John Turturro, Patricia Arquette, Zach Cherry, Britt Lower, Christopher Walken, and more.

In this podcast, the hosts interview actor Michael Chernus about his turn as Ricken Lazlo Hale, the fictional author of “The You You Are.” Michael speaks with Josh, Melissa and Amanda about the funny bees, the funny book, and the not-so-funny themes at the heart of “Severance.”

The second season finale feedback podcast is still coming. Stay tuned!
