Soaps In Depth Podcast — Real Vs Reel


Join Soaps In Depth editors — and lifelong soap fans — Richard Simms and Charlie Mason as they dish about everything that’s right and wrong with daytime dramas in the Soaps In Depth Podcast! Every week, these two offer their uncensored opinions on current storylines, praise outstanding performances, discuss the latest news, and tease what’s coming up next on all your favorite shows. 

There was a time when soaps routinely took on tough issues such as abortion or drug abuse, facing them in a head-on fashion. Today’s soaps are more likely to ignore the former and play the latter as little more than a plot point. Is there value to be had in adding a dose of reality to daytime’s dramas, or should they focus more on being sheer escapism? Should the lives of the people we see each day on the screen more closely resemble the world in which we live?
