Talking Bridge of Spies and Just How Crazy The Cold War Really Was.

Joining me for this episode about Bridge of Spies, the new Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks movie, is Russell Kirk, who you may remember from the Rear Window episode.

This movie is right up his alley. Like me, Russell's a big history buff. But where he has a leg up on me is that he actually graduated from law school, which comes in handy here because the first part of this film deals a lot with lawyers and the law. It's just a good fit is what I'm saying.

But, beyond that, Bridge of Spies and its themes provide us with plenty to discuss — and plenty for me to independently research after watching. Long story short: Berlin and the Cold War are both all kinds of interesting, and the situation at the heart of this film has to be one of the more insane things to have ever happened in the 20th century. Really.

So listen in as I share all the details that really blew my mind.
