The streaming service launched the podcast, titled “The Crown: The Official Podcast“, a day after launching the third season of the drama. This podcast will be second to the previously released companion podcast for miniseries, Chernobyl by HBO.
The podcast is hosted by British presenter Edith Bowman and will have discussions on every episode. Peter Morgan, along with casting directors Robert Sterne and Nina Gold will deliver insights regarding each episode, behind the scenes and anything else said exclusively on the podcast itself.
For instance, in the first podcast episode for The Crown, Morgan admits that it is difficult for him to bear the time before season launch. He thinks that it would be ideal for him if he can just keep making seasons without launching them. This is because the scrutiny that follows after launch, as he describes it, “is nerve-wracking.”
He also mentioned the replacement of Matt Smith, Claire Foy, and the inclusion of Olivia Colman. He said that replacing the cast would be a “high-wire act” and a “big dump.”
As Deadline reported, Morgan went in-depth regarding The Crown in the podcast:
“You either go with putting a whole lot of make up or prosthetics on somebody or you just say it’s ridiculous to ask someone who is in their 20s or early 30s to play somebody who is 50 or understand it. You can’t draw on something within yourself. When you are middle aged and bits start to ache, you’ve already had some of the stuffing knocked out of you… you can put lines on somebody’s face but you can’t breathe the fatigue or bruises of life. Life has had a go at you by then.”
