Scott Horton invited me on his show to discuss the relationship between the Pentagon and Top Gun: Maverick.  We outline how this isn’t about ruining movies, but how the US military hijacks them as mechanisms for recruitment and perception management.  We hone in on Top Gun: Maverick, why the original sequel was scrapped in the 1990s after the Pentagon pulled out, and how the relationship on the new film goes back a decade.
