In Session: The In Treatment Podcast

HBO’s In Treatment is back for a fourth season starring Emmy winner Uzo Aduba (Orange Is The New Black) as the central therapist, Dr. Brooke Taylor. Each week, join writer and actor Brandon Kyle Goodman (Big Mouth; Modern Love) and licensed clinical psychologist Dr. Janelle S. Peifer to break down new episodes of the series. Our hosts dive into Dr. Taylor’s week, demystify the process of therapy, and examine the relationship between therapist and patient—all with a healthy dose of humor and joy. In Session: The In Treatment Podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Studios.

On the last episode of In Session, hosts Dr. Janelle S. Peifer and Brandon Kyle Goodman talk to the incomparable Uzo Aduba about her experience bringing Dr. Brooke Taylor to life. We hear why Uzo says In Treatment was “the hardest thing she’s ever done” and what it’s like to play a character with so many struggles that overlap with her own. Then, our hosts talk through the show’s last four episodes and unpack tricky questions about how and when to end a therapeutic relationship.
