Silo: S1 "secrets" w/ Hugh Howey

Episode 14
50m | Jul 15, 2023

Now that the entire season 1 of Silo on Apple TV+ is up for discussion, author of the books and one of the exec producers of the series Hugh Howey lets me pick his brain. We talk about his inspirations, his favorite bits from the series, what it was like on set, and which one of my theories from the podcast is now officially canon. Beacon 23 and Sand fans won't want to miss our (spoiler-free) talk about those adaptations, too.

Plus, introducing the Silo series book club! Where to find it and what to expect.

This episode includes spoilers for the entire first season of Silo, plus the first half of the book Wool. Not future plot twists are spoiled.
