We launched a Patreon 👉WWW.PATREON.COM/THEWIRESTRIPPED 👈 and will be donating money to the Ella Thompson Fund, which is supported by The Wire and its production team.


We were lucky enough to talk to the lead casting director of The Wire, Alexa Fogel.


The first question that we ask our cast members that come onto the show is “how did you get onto The Wire”. The almost always say “Alexa Fogel got me that part” – so we thought it would be great to hear first hand from her about how she cast the show! This is a preview of that episode if you want to listen to the whole interview go to our Patreon WWW.PATREON.COM/THEWIRESTRIPPED to listen right now!


NB – most of these interviews were never meant to be aired fully and in particular Kobi’s rambling questions were never supposed to be heard, but we thought it would be more real, raw and fun for you to hear that he’s perhaps not as composed as on the show.



The first Patreon exclusive interview there is a full interview with Chris Bauer talking exclusively to us about his role as “Frank Sobotka” in Season 2.
