HBO's Succession Podcast

The official podcast about the HBO Original series Succession. Each week journalist and host Kara Swisher unpacks real world events that echo the saga unfolding on screen. Guests include top journalists, writers, psychologists, as well as some of the people involved in making the TV show. Plus, weekly power rankings from the latest episodes of Succession — Who’s up? Who’s down? Who made the week’s biggest power play? Podcast episodes are available each week right after the latest episode of Succession airs Sundays on HBOMax. The official Succession podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Studios.

Host Kara Swisher is joined by organizational psychologist Adam Grant to discuss Season 3, Episode 2, “Mass in Time of War,” and dive into the complicated family business dynamics of the Roy children. Kara and Adam talk about what happens when a culture of lies, narcissists, ego is fueled by a demanding and demeaning boss. Plus Kara gives her take on who ended this week’s episode of Succession on top of the leaderboard, who’s down, and who made the biggest power move. The official Succession podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Studios.

  • In the first episode of the Succession podcast, host Kara Swisher unpacks a deliciously awkward phone call between Gerri and the president’s press secretary. Kara is joined by former White House Communications Director, Jennifer Palmieri to talk about real life media conglomerates lobbying the White House, and whether Waystar’s move was savvy, or just a complete disaster. Kara also ranks which character is up in this week’s episode, who’s down, and who made the most surprising power move. The official Succession podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Studios.
