It took a tremendous amount of serendipity to have this one-year anniversary podcast work out the way that it did.
Long story short: My good friend Justin Bell, a former regular from this podcast's early months and my first-ever guest, now lives in Michigan, but after a rain storm canceled his flight from a weekend wedding, he was able to catch a flight to Dallas for the night to take part in this recording. We used this opportunity to see Elvis & Nixon, and then talk about it in this setting.
What's we think? Well, it's a humorous movie with a lot of detail. And it has some good performances. But it also has some bad ones.
Mostly here, we relish in the opportunity to talk about Nixon and his presidential policies. That's always a good time, right?
