Hi there, it's Mo here with a really special treat. In June, I moderated a panel on the HBO drama "The Leftovers" at the ATX Television Festival in Austin. It was a few days after the show's series finale aired, and on the panel were executive producer Damon Lindelof, executive producer (and author of the novel "The Leftovers") Tom Perrotta, and executive producer/director Mimi Leder. At the start of the conversation, I handed out tissues to all the panelists, because I was fairly sure most of us were going to cry at some point.

Many did, but before and after those moments, we talked about the show in depth, and it was life-affirming to hear these creative and thoughtful people talk about the themes of "The Leftovers" and the choices they made and why this amazing program ended the way it did. Near the end, Lindelof made me cry in a way I totally did not see coming (which seems like a very "Leftovers"-ian thing to do, and that moment also has to do with this essay). By the way, if you're a "Leftovers completist, don't miss this previous Talking TV podcast on the show

One other note: Jasmin Savoy-Brown, who played Evie Murphy, was in the audience, and that led to the above moment of mild hilarity (because everyone enjoys Guilty Remnant humor). In any event, I loved moderating this panel, the panelists were wise and funny and informative, the audience questions at the end were great, and lots of people got a little bit misty before it was all over. What more could we ask for?

It's Mo flying solo and talking to W. Kamau Bell, host of the fine CNN series "United Shades of America, which returns April 30. It's a show that manages to be funny, timely and well-researched, and Bell is one of the best conversationalists on TV right now. We talk about how his show changed its approach slightly in Season 2, and about where he and his producers went this year.

Mo and Ryan return as promised with an analysis of all 13 episodes of Netflix's "13 Reasons Why." We go for a full hour. We had a lot to say. Do not listen until you've watched the whole show. Seriously.

Mo and Ryan return with a short (by their standards) look at season one of HBO's "Westworld." Please note that every episode is discussed, so put on your spoiler hats (white or black) accordingly.
