Episode 41: The Manchurian Candidate

The Manchurian CandidateIn this week’s episode, we felt like talking about politics for some reason, so we watched The Manchurian Candidate!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because if you haven’t seen the movie by now, you owe yourself a treat. This film can is a little hard to find on streaming right now, but it is available on Amazon Streaming if you have a Starz account (…or if you sign up for their 7-day free trial, hint hint).

Please join us again on February 7th, when we launch into the world of Philip Marlowe with Murder, My Sweet!
