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.
First Blood: is it about the challenges of small-town law enforcement, or is the tale of John Rambo an allegory for the war in Vietnam? On today’s episode Adam, Ben, and John explore the abandoned mine that is this 1982 thriller, and learn that maybe after a war, nobody truly goes home.
