UNSINKABLE: The Titanic Podcast

An interview with Actor Cotter Smith: Unpacking Senator Smith + The Titanic Inquiry's Legacy

Join me for a conversation with renowned actor Cotter Smith, who portrays Senator William Alden Smith in the new film Unsinkable: Titanic Untold. We discuss how he tackled playing this rather controversial Titanic figure, a man who spearheaded the United States Senate Inquiry in the immediate aftermath of the sinking; we also dissect how Smith has been treated in the ship's historiography and maybe why he’s not gotten the fairest shot. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Cotter. If you’d like to see Cotter and some of the cast and crew of Unsinkable in person, consider joining us for a screening + Q/A in Knoxville on April 12th!
