Listen to the podcast

In the companion podcast to the explosive new HBO Max dramedy Generation, hosts Gigi Goode and Whembley Sewell sit down for a roundtable chat with creators, writers, and actors from the show to unpack a specific episode of the TV series — and ultimately, peel back the many layers of the most complex and evolved generation ever.

Together, the group reveals the origins of each Generation episode: who brought the story to the table, what inspired it, and how it all came together in the writers’ room and on set. In doing so, these intimate conversations uncover how some of the more pressing issues facing Gen Z -- from identity and sexuality to social media and depression — have affected these guests’ personal lives, and directly influenced the storylines and dialogue portrayed within the show.
