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.
Paisan: Does this film live and breathe the eccentricities of life during wartime? Or does each vignette simply signal an understanding between Italy and America? On today’s episode Adam, Ben, and John walk into a monastery while reviewing this 1946 drama.
