The Beating Heart

On this packed episode, writer Craig Shilowich sits down with Nancy to talk about a reveal many viewers almost certainly assumed was manufactured — the very real Sophie, the French editor of "The Staircase" documentary, who falls for Michael Peterson; editor Sofia Subercaseaux discusses editorial objectivity and bias in filmmaking; psychologist Amanda Vicary tries to get to the bottom of why we--especially women--love true crime; and Academy Award-winning actress Juliet Binoche addresses what it's like to portray the series' most shocking character.
