A history podcast with a twist: Friendly Fire uses war movies as a point of entry on not only the history of war, but the history of how societies think about war. John Roderick, Adam Pranica and Benjamin Ahr Harrison dissect movies from throughout the history of cinema, talk about film production, pedantic quibbles with costumes and airplanes, and keep you laughing the entire time.
Fires on the Plain: Does this WWII story reflect a harsh and honest end to a losing battle or is this a film about confidently facing infinite obstacles? On today’s episode Adam, Ben, and John taste the monkey meat of brutal filmmaking while accepting that no matter how sad, some stories must be told.
