Robbie Martin of Media Roots invited me back on the show for a lengthy, often funny discussion partly inspired by my recent Jack Ryan video. We went over some things in the news, including Joe Biden’s increasingly erratic and bizarre behaviour, before outlining some of the history of the Jack Ryan character and Tom Clancy’s relationships with the US government. We also talked about the inspiration for my video analysis of the CIA and DOD role in Amazon’s Jack Ryan, and broke down the plots of season 1 and season 2 for their political content. This is a wide-ranging and at times absurd conversation about the madness(es) of our time that you won’t want to miss.
Hopefully Robbie will be appearing on ClandesTime soon – we have tentatively talked about examining either Star Trek IV or War Games, along with their DOD film office files. Enjoy!
