Episode 22: Leaving Neverland

Pulling no punches, yet careful in their treatment of a sensitive/controversial topic, the Welcome To The Party Pal duo examines the HBO documentary directed and produced by filmmaker Dan Reed, Leaving Neverland, which focuses on two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who allege they were sexually abused as children by the singer Michael Jackson. In this episode hosts Brian Sachson and Michael Shields dissect the controversy around the documentary, analyze the credibility of the two men at the center of the film, ponder the unique and potentially perilous power of celebrity, and consider if it is possible to separate art from the artist.
