It’s been just over a year since “True Detective” wrapped its addictive first season (March 9, on the nose), and, to commemorate the occasion, Indiewire isn’t just looking back on the barrier-breaking first season but also launching a podcast in its honor. Okay, so maybe the podcast is more of its own thing, but the first episode of “Very Good TV Podcast” digs into the public perception of Nic Pizzolatto’s series one year after its Season 1 finale aired, why the series came up short at the Emmys and Golden Globes, plus what each analyst expects from the much-anticipated Season 2.
Hosted by Indiewire TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller — who had never seen the series prior to February 2015 — and TV Critic Ben Travers — who is probably too enthusiastic of a fan — “Very Good TV Podcast” will offer weekly examinations of the best stories, shows and trends across television that are relevant to you, our very dear listeners, plus offer our heartiest recommendations of what new content you should be watching. Expect new episodes every Monday, and keep up with Miller and Travers via Twitter for breaking news and in-depth reporting.
