“Bridgerton: The Official Podcast” just dropped new episodes in April. This companion series is back to gossip all about Bridgerton’s second season with host Gabrielle Collins, breaking down every Netflix episode with guests like cast and crew as they channel their inner Lady Whistledown and take listeners behind the scenes.
We recommend streaming the podcast in chronological order each season, but feel free to jump around to hear specific guests if you’ve already binged both seasons on Netflix. So far, all episodes are less than 45 minutes each.
A recent podcast episode caught up with Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington) and director Tricia Brock to chat about Penelope’s life between social seasons. They shared how Shondaland’s series developed and expanded its world with the Sharma family.
Last season, episodes also answered fans’ questions with the show’s executive producers, Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. A bonus episode addressed questions on scandal and succession with Bridgerton’s historian, Dr. Hannah Greig.
In previous episodes, we heard about first fittings to last looks with costume designers Ellen Mirojnick and John Glaser. There were interviews about pop strings compositions with Kris Bowers and choreographing dance scenes with Jack Murphy. Another episode explored storytelling and sex with Bridgerton’s intimacy coordinator, Lizzie Talbot.
Actors like Nicola Coughlan and Claudia Jessie shared about their on-screen friendship. Golda Rosheuvel and Adjoa Andoh stopped by to discuss their favorite moments from filming. Casting director Kelly Valentine Hendry dished on her knack for spotting electric chemistry in castings. The production design team joined an episode to dish on coveted locations for filming and how they protected locales when sprucing them up for Bridgerton.
This series is a must-listen for fans who can’t get enough of Bridgerton. While you’re waiting for Netflix’s third season, tune in weekly for new episodes of “Bridgerton: The Official Podcast,” presented by Shondaland Audio and iHeartPodcasts.
