Pauline McLynn stars in brand new Netflix thrilled Bodkin 

There’s a question the trio of podcasters at the center of the darkly comedic thriller Bodkin ask themselves: “How much of this is true, and how much is a story?” As series creator Jez Scharf tells Tudum, “Once you start asking that question, all of reality falls apart.”

Bodkin also stars Will Forte , Siobhán Cullen, and Robyn Cara as Gilbert, Dove, and Emmy, a crew of podcasters investigating the nefarious goings-on swirling beneath the seemingly idyllic veneer of the titular small town in Ireland, where several mysterious disappearances occurred 25 years ago. 

In their attempt to uncover the truth about the people lost during the town’s annual Samhain celebration — a traditional Gaelic fall festival that celebrates the end of the harvest season and the longer, darker days to come — our heroes realize Bodkin might be small, but it holds some very big secrets. As they unravel the threads that have been woven back together through the years, it seems like what the podcasters are going to discover is “a commentary on stories of violence,” says Scharf. “But really, it’s about the stories that we tell in general, and the stories that we tell ourselves and what violence we can do to ourselves and others.”

Bodkin is released on Netflix on May 9th
