For the last episode of the podcast, Stacey discusses Anna’s trial with her real life defense attorney, Todd Spodek. She also meets with Matt Byrne, who wrote the series finale, and who attended Anna’s trial as a representative from Shondaland and Netflix.  Anna’s defense attorney, Todd Spodek weighs in on the portrayal of his complex and ever evolving relationship with Anna, and on what the case meant to him personally. Anna was a difficult client at times, but she could also be profoundly charming and sweet. Todd reflects on the side of Anna he saw that he says no one else did. No one else except perhaps his good friend Jessica Pressler (Vivian’s character is based on Jessica). He talks about their friendship, his thought process behind Anna’s defense, what he thinks of his portrayal by Arian Moayed, and more.  Later in the episode, Matt Byrnes takes us inside the courtroom from his perspective, and reveals how the trial impacted the show’s ending. The trial was still ongoing as he and the rest of the writers were scripting the series. He gets into why they chose to make it a true story, “except for all the parts that are entirely made up,” and explains what his and Shonda’s intentions were behind the most crucial moments in the series and the finale.

This week Stacey talks fashion, character arcs, and process with critically acclaimed costume designer, Lyn Paolo.  Much of Anna’s mystique comes from her ability to shapeshift, an ability intimately tied to her apparel. Lyn was in charge of recreating all of Anna’s many outfits for the screen. From baby-doll dress to business-chic to trial style, Lyn traces the evolution of Anna’s looks, and explains the unique challenges behind recreating the appearance of a modern day fashionista who Lyn calls a “chameleon.”  Anna isn’t the only character whose story is reflected in what they wear. The people who get close to Anna in the series are affected by her elevated taste as well.
