If only I’d caught onto this tv show earlier. But now I’ve binged all 6 seasons it’s fascinating to listen to a more in depth discussion of the show’s making. Really enjoying the behind the scenes discussions from the cast crew and makers. Great stuff!

Not a recap, a fascinating extra slice that takes you inside the show, talks to creators from across the crew, and gives amazing insight into spy craft and the craft of tv. Almost as addictive as the program itself!

This podcast consists of interviews with cast or crew members who discuss their creative process. There is minimal discussion of the episode itself. This is not a podcast for viewers who are looking for breakdown of what just happened - the elements and themes of the story, the meaning of the...Read full review »

I cannot imagine watching The Americans without this amazing podcast. This is NOT a recap... it’s an in-depth discussion with the creators, actors, set-designers, technical consultants, editors etc... Bonus: it also has the inimitable June Thomas.

It's so wonderful to get access to the minds and talent behind the best show on television. You get great insights into the process behind making the show, and any time Matthew Rhys & Keri Russell are on, the show is just bonkers. If only they episodes were longer!

If you love The Americans, this is a great podcast, despite the host who seems to misunderstand the entire series! Thankfully the writers usually disagree with her totally misunderstood interpretations of the characters!

This is an excellent podcast! I'm a huge fan of the show, and I really enjoy "getting to know" the actors, writers, and showrunners. I will admit, the podcast episodes of season three were my favorite: the focus was on the episodes, unlike the later seasons. Overall, I would definitely recommend...Read full review »

Superb behind the scenes view of the show. June is an excellent interviewer and teases a lot out of the creators, the stars and technicians on the show. This really enhances the experience of watching the show for me - I'm understanding the craft and background more. Leaves me more impressed if...Read full review »

I love this show. Been listening since 2016. I listen after every episode. After I discovered the show I of course went back to listen to every past segment.
podcastlistener111 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/17
I am curious why the producers of this podcast thought it worthwhile for the listeners to hear June Thomas' every uh-huh, right, right, and yeah, yeah, yeah. I don't see how it helped me understand what was being talked about. At times I could not hear what was being said by the interviewee. ...Read full review »

There could be more direct discussions of the show's plot and twists, but I do appreciate the "making of the show segments." Good to hear from writers, producers, stage creators, music engineers, 2nd directors, etc. I think June Thomas is very good as a host.
Terry in Bothell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/17
The host constantly is inserting "yep" "mm-hmm" and other little things while the guest is talking, it drives me nuts, but it's a free podcast with excellent insight into the behind the scenes of the show.

Good interviews w/writers, actors and others involved in show. Another podcast about the show I enjoy is The Jennings Basement.
Hed-Mat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/17
Love listening to the behind the scenes info, but the host is the worst host ever. Thankfully the content helps get past her annoying (yeah, uh uh, right) interrupting traits. Wish the episodes were a bit longer.

At the behind the scenes
SecurityNerdette via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/17
I’m a huge fan of The Americans, and I’m very interested in the content of this podcast (i.e., what the guests have to say), but June Thomas ruins the whole experience for me. Her “active listening” and verbal encouragement while the guests/panelists are giving their answers is horrible...Read full review »

Behind the scenes looks at each episode of a fantastic tv series each week as episodes air.
Pearly_ via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/26/17
I love the insights I get from this podcast. So many things that can go unoticed. I think it could talk more about the episodes and scences themselves, but it is still quite good.
VivianeGomide via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/17
I love The Americans and this podcast is a must for any fan of the show. It's awesome to hear all of the behind the scenes info and to hear what the show runners and stars think about each episode. I loved the first season when they really talked to the people in charge of all of the parts that...Read full review »

Thanks for making this podcast. I love The Americans and I love watching the show again after listening to the podcast.
Elliotte0157 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/16
I love the show, so getting to extend my enjoyment with this podcast has been great!
Smile12005 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/12/16
At first the podcast did a nice job of discussing the weeks episode, however recently the podcast has become more about how the show is put together rather than a recap.
Cuse445 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/26/16
I enjoy listening to the podcast after watching the show and only wish they had made these for the earlier seasons as well. The "J"s, Weisberg and Fields are fun and give all (and none) of the insights you hope for while the guests reveal some interesting movieMakingMagic that are making me...Read full review »

I would give this podcast 6 stars if I could. This is not a recap podcast and I love it because of this. It explores real life espionage and the workings of a television show. I have only listened to season 4 and June Thomas.
Kayla74 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/16
This is perfect companion to watching the Americans with insight from cast and creators. You can tell they love making the show and it shows. Watch The Americans and then listen! Carl @MyVogonPoetry on Twitter

As a fan of the show, this podcast is always interesting and helps me to understand each episode as well as what it takes to produce a drama of this quality.

I love the Americans!! Best show on TV. I love the inside look. Thanks.
bigwayne66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/15
This podcast is awesome. Love all the little details that are shared and love that it doesn't drag on. Can't wait to listen next season!
danpir via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/05/15
I don’t understand this podcast. I subscribed because Slate podcasts usually do a great job of discussing the TV show or film. But this podcast barely touches upon the events of the episodes, instead interviewing cast members and production staff about themselves. This is more a “Making The...Read full review »

I was shocked at the lack of professionalism and morality the producers and talent exhibit on this podcast. Kerri Russell was either high or drunk when she was on recently... The producers aren't much better. They spend too much time heaping praises upon themselves and the show. They proudly...Read full review »

I enjoy this behind-the-scenes look, but I wish it could be longer and more in-depth. Nevertheless, I appreciate that this exists at all and I wish that more shows did this.
blimey1985 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/15
As a fan of the execution of the show, I feel saddened by how the producers seem to be navel-gazing at their own awesomeness in this podcast. Landing Keri and Matthew for this show really is their success, because it seems their chemistry is the muse that keeps giving despite their pride of...Read full review »

Gained some fantastic insights into the show and the writing process that you won't find anywhere else. Discusses the process and decisions behind the show. Can't wait for more. Will be recommending to my TV production class.
