Searching For An Elusive Truth

(Starts at 6:45)

The five-part HBO miniseries, "Chernobyl," tells the story of the 1986 meltdown of a Soviet nuclear reactor, but to creator Craig Mazin it's also a warning about the human tendency we have to believe narrative over what's true. He talks with John Horn about how he stumbled upon untold pieces to this story that led him to make the show. In addition he explains why he made a podcast to accompany this series, in which he explains why he's fictionalized certain storylines so that he's transparent with the viewer about his own use of truth and lies.
