HBO’s The White Lotus returned for its second season on October 30. In weekly podcast episodes, hosts Ariel (@thatotherariel) and Dr. Amanda (@dramandar) recap each episode after it airs. This award-winning comedy-drama anthology series was written/directed by Mike White and scored 10 Emmys in 2022.
Each season, The White Lotus follows a group of privileged travelers visiting a White Lotus resort somewhere in the world. Throughout the series, the characters act on their impulses, interact with fellow guests and employees of the White Lotus resort chain, and engage in plenty of drama.
As the guests’ resort stay continues, more complex situations unfold as characters’ dark sides come to the forefront. The podcast previously recapped season 1 in 7 episodes that ran less than 2 hours each. The co-hosts analyze the show, share recaps, and offer honest takes after watching each episode. For season 1’s recaps, guests like Rob Cesternino (@robcesternino), Naomi Calhoun (@naomicalhoun), and Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) weighed in with the co-hosts.
