TCMP #63 – Michael Collins (w/ Wade Gill)

Every couple months I get real obsessed with Irish history. It’s got a lot of crazy stories. This Brexit stuff kind of sparked it for me this time. Any time I do get into it, I always tell myself I need to watch Michael Collins again. The movie does a nice job of telling that period of history pretty accurately. With the caveat that their portal of De Valera seems to be quite shaded by the fact they needed the story to have a villain. This time I did get around to a re-watch and had the chance to talk about it with my friend Wade. We talk about the movie some and other Irish history things totally unrelated to the movie.
