Introducing Spectacle

Spectacle is a documentary podcast series about the rise of the newest and most American of art forms: the reality TV show. From The Bachelor’s problematic take on gender to The Real World’s casting for conflict, Spectacle unpacks the wild and hyper-real history of unscripted television, one moment at a time. We examine how the genre has changed over time, and how the country has changed along with it.
