Episode 498: Get Off My Paper

On the Overthinking It Podcast we tackle “The Post,” directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.

Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, and Matthew Wrather hit go on the machine that makes the podcast and the ink starts to spill as they discuss The Post, a first amendment fable for our time, or rather for a time we might wish we lived in but don’t.

    My first thought on watching this film was “Wow, a CCR song to open up a scene set in Vietnam. Kind of on the nose.” Then I thought “Well at least it was Green River instead of Fortunate Son or Run through the Jungle.

    My next thought upon seeing a poster advertising a Robert Redford poster was “are they going to make a bunch of All the President’s Men references?” Then they ended it with a teaser for the Watergate scandal and realized this was prequel or possible a modern superhero reboot of newsroom dramas.

    I mean, technically “Zodiac” “The Post” “All the President’s Men” and “Spotlight” exist in the same cinematic Universe.
