All The President's Men - A Totally NOT Relevant Film

Hello again, dear listeners! Join us again as we discuss the 1976 Alan J. Pakula film All The President's Men, about intrepid journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein and their quest to uncover the truth about the Watergate story that eventually took down President Richard Nixon, which definitely has NO relevancy to anything happening in the United States today... We also get into some hard-hitting present-day political commentary! We hope you enjoy!
