Stinger Topic of the Week: Russian Doll
19:18 – Netflix’s Russian Doll is a comedy-drama about Nadia, a woman who dies over and over and keeps returning to the night of her 36th birthday party. But it’s way more clever, dark, and edgy than its Groundhog Day-like premise would suggest. This show, in its eight 25-minute episodes, delivers plot twists and gut-punches as it explores mortality, grief, redemption, and forgiveness.
On this podcast, we talk about the deep ideas behind this series, the actors and creators, and what it all might mean in the end. And of course, all the great quotes from Russian Doll!
Emmy-nominated Natasha Lyonne not only stars as Nadia, she is also a writer and directed the final episode.
