Wormwood: The Companion Podcast
Meet the Wormwood Podcast — from Academy Award-winning director Errol Morris, this is the official companion piece to the Netflix genre-bending documentary Wormwood. Join the discussion as we dive deeper into the mysterious death of CIA scientist Frank Olson. Did he fall or jump from his 13th floor New York hotel room in 1953? The official story is that he was purposefully drugged with LSD without his knowledge and died from a fall a few days later. But the case was left unsolved and his son, Eric Olson, has spent his life investigating it. In this podcast, Morris explores the winding road of the story, with Eric Olson, actor Peter Sarsgaard, and journalist Jon Ronson. Wormwood is now streaming, in six parts, on Netflix.
