On this episode of Kickin' & Streamin' Podcast, Graham & Jocelyn discuss Netflix original miniseries "Unbelievable," based on an article entitled: "An Unbelievable Story of Rape" published on Pro Publica in collaboration with The Marshall Project. Jocelyn gives a "no spoiler" background of the story, specifically about the character named Marie Adler. Graham & Jocelyn discuss at length the series of miscarriage of justice Marie is subjected to by a string of male detectives and the people she considered to be her family who refused to believe she was raped. The two co-host present the contrasting reality of the other case in the story about Amber, a college student in Colorado who like Marie, was rape in in the same conditions and circumstances, yet her case was believed and investigated by two female detectives who cracked the case and ended up serving justice to Marie.
Graham & Jocelyn then moved on to discuss the cast beginning with Kaitlyn Dever, the young actress who played Marie Adler. They marveled at Kaitlyn's histrionics and ability to portray the pain and anguish of Marie Adler in her most vulnerable moments. They also discuss the starring role and acting pedigree of Australian actress Toni Colette (United States of Tara), along with American actress Merritt Wever (Zoey Barkow - Nurse Jackie), in her role of Detective Karen Duvall. During the discussion, Jocelyn shared a personal story of how she felt when a medical doctor dismissed her severe bout of depression as "It's called PMS, honey" and how this relates to law enforcement officers, medical personnel, and other authority figures' reluctance to believe children and women.
