World War II Movie Night

World War II Movie Night


On World War II Movie Night, host J. Byron delves into the countless movies made about the greatest conflict in human history. How much can we learn about World War II from how it’s portrayed in film? Can movies render this infinite subject more manageable? Fun and stimulation mix in this engaging, thought-provoking podcast.

Come upstairs for the party! World War II Movie Night delves into the defining movie re: Hitler’s (and the Reich’s) last days. Alongside this excellent German production we examine a recent Hitler biography, a 2002 documentary (“Blind Spot”) and, yes, a classic “Simpsons”. We also count the suicides and recoil from Goebbels’ creepiness. So get on the dance floor and try to ignore the Russian shelling!
