“Denial” with Taran Killam and Charles Rogers

Denial lies at the core of Search Party’s third season—but where is the line between denial and delusion? From Dory’s reshaped narrative about Keith’s murder to Elliott’s invented identity and Drew’s shame about his violent past, all of the series’ characters struggle—and some refuse—to come to terms with their actions. In this first episode of the companion podcast to Search Party, host Bowen Yang chats with show co-creator Charles Rogers and loooooong-time fan Taran Killam about the ways in which denial fuels the characters’ personal journeys, how their friendships enable each others’ manipulative tendencies, and why season three’s judicial backdrop allowed for greater creativity in the writing process. Also, Taran speculates on what’s in store for season four. (Spoiler alert: He has no idea.)
