To Leslie, Paul T. Goldman, and Pedro Pascal

Downward spirals and rabbit holes, plus a celebration of everyone's current fave

We discuss To Leslie and Paul T. Goldman, a film and a series about people trapped by their own demons.

03:37 To Leslie, available VOD, is a familiar narrative that’s elevated by an Oscar-worthy performance.

19:38 Paul T. Goldman, streaming on Peacock, is as painstakingly and skillfully crafted as it is completely wild.

38:35 Plus, culture notes about Pedro Pascal, an official boyfriend of the pod.
