“Comic Cowardice or False Power” (with Lucy Prebble)

In the third episode of the podcast Kara Swisher and Succession Executive Producer Lucy Prebble talk about how the writers of the show walk the line between tragedy and comedy. We hear how Succession creator Jesse Armstrong pushes the writers to steer clear of anything that could veer into soap opera, and learn where they find inspiration in real world events. And of course, Kara goes through this week’s Succession “Power Rankings.” The official Succession podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Studios.
