Friend of the show Jacq is back to talk about Maniac, the 2018 Netflix limited series from Cary Joji Fukunaga and Patrick Somerville. Owen and Annie, two lonely New Yorkers with their own unique traumas, enroll in an experimental psychiatric drug trial. They experience hallucinations where they’re living wildly different lives but they’re always connected to each other, an impossible mental bond that puzzles the scientists running the trial. Can Owen and Annie learn to support each other and move past their pain together, and can these scientists stop a glitching computer from destroying all of their test subjects?
