Text by Margaret Blanchard, Video by Paige Marogil


“We’re trying to make something that sticks in people’s minds,” Bruce Miller, creator and executive producer of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” says in this Peabody Conversation. The dystopian drama was honored with a 2017 Peabody Award for its beautiful, albeit harrowing, adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s vision of a fascist, misogynist future.
