Before catching The West Wing Weekly at the Berklee Performance Center on April 21, be sure to listen to the episode recapping the political drama’s season three finale, “Posse Comitatus.” That live podcast from last year featured Aaron Sorkin and guest appearances by former West Wing cast members Allison Janney and Melissa Fitzgerald reviewing the TV episode that aired in 2002. It provides a good indication for the type of unexpected moments the audience can expect at this show from Hrishikesh Hirway and Joshua Malina, which will dive into the season four finale with director Thomas Schlamme.
