Escaping Gilead! The Handmaid’s Tale Podcast (Episode 410+Bruce Miller Interview)

The Handmaid’s Tale — “The Wilderness” – Episode 410 — “Sure, Fred. We can Zoom.” June draws on all her resources and relationships, risking everything to ensure her own kind of justice. Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) and Serena Waterford (Yvonne Strahovski), shown. (Photo by: Sophie Giraud/Hulu)

That’s it for this year, Handmaid’s fans and instead of going out with a bang, Fred chose whistle instead (but he may have wanted to reconsider that later). In this podcast, Paul and Caroline have invited Mike, the third co-owner of Pod Clubhouse and a Handmaid’s expert in his own right, to sit in and pinch-hit for an ailing Paul. Also in this podcast, creator of The Handmaid’s Tale and writer of this episode, Bruce Miller, drops by and answers some questions about the creation of this episode.

In this episode, the Pod Clubhouse triple-headed host-monster also talks about:
  • Why make a trade for 22 women and not even bring up Hannah?
  • Can a “good mother” just put things like June’s history with Fred in the past and move on?
  • What is a “good mother” anyway?

For the first three seasons, you might have been listening to Paul and Caroline as the “Daley Review”, faithfully analyzing each episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. Since January of 2020, they’ve decided to team up with to form Pod Clubhouse and continue reviewing the show under that banner. You’ll get the same analysis and the same repartee only a married couple can give, just under a new name: Escaping Gilead! The Handmaid’s Tale Podcast!
