Wow. Our experiment is off to a great start—let's see if we can finish it off sooner than expected.
Today, we're introducing a new weekly feature—a podcast called A Movie & an Argument, with Alyssa and Swin.
Each week, I'll be sitting down to chat with ThinkProgress critic Alyssa Rosenberg (who also does awesome work at The Atlantic and "Double X" at Slate). We'll talk, argue, and laugh about the latest movies, television series, and pop-cultural nonsense—with some politics thrown in just for the hell of it.
Alyssa describes herself as being "equally devoted to the Star Wars expanded universe and Barbara Stanwyck, to Better Off Ted and Deadwood." I (everyone calls me Swin) am a devoted lover of low-brow dark humor, Yuengling, and movies with high body counts. I hope you tune in for this episode and the ones to come.
We'll be featuring guests on the program, and also taking listeners' questions, so feel free to Tweet them at me here, and we'll see if we can get to them.
Below, you'll find the audio for our inaugural episode, in which we discuss:
Thanks for tuning in!
