I veckans podd: Killing Eve & Cosby-domen

Killing Eve is the highly addictive spy thriller from BBC America, starring Sandra Oh as Eve and Jodie Comer as assassin Villanelle in a cat and mouse chase like no other. The series is based on the novel Codename Villanelle written by Luke Jennings who joins us on this episode. He shares his inspiration for the lead characters, working with the talented playwright Phoebe Waller-Bridge who brought the characters to life on Killing Eve and why he sees his writing as a dance.

Then we are joined by reporter Annette John-Hall, who is the host of the WHYY podcast Cosby Unraveled. Bill Cosby’s conviction on sexual assault charges in recent weeks was hailed as a victory for the victims, the first high-profile conviction of the #metoo era. John-Hall has been reporting for the podcast and following the events of the trail closely. She shares why this trial was different from Cosby’s earlier trial, how the public has responded and what she thinks the sentence will be from the judge.
