TCMP #26 – Bridge Of Spies (w/ Russell Kirk)

Back for to talk about the new Steven Spielberg movie is Russell Kirk. You know him from the Rear Window episode. This is a movie right up his ally. It’s about history, which he and I are both into. The first part of the movie deals a lot with lawyers and the law, and Russ graduated from law school. It is just a good fit.

The movie and its themes provided a lot to talk about. And seeing this movie also spurred me on to a lot more reading about Berlin and its Cold War history. That has to be one of the more insane situations of the 20th century, and I share all the details that really blew my mind.
