154. Swimming with The Swans (Alicia’s Version) | Episode Five: Critiques, Family Reactions and the Origin Story of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird

In this week’s episode, we explore Episode Five of Feud: Capote vs. The Swans. Included are three segments: a critique of the episode, reaction from Babe Paley’s granddaughter, and a true-life literary connection about the origin story of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, which happened at the first party Truman Capote hosted, long before his 1966 Black and White Ball.
