    9/11 & Fear: In their final report, the 9/11 Commission declared that of all the mistakes the U.S. made prior to the terrorist attacks, the greatest was “a failure of imagination.” Which is why -- in a story that has never been told -- the Department of Defense and the CIA established an ongoing relationship with a secret brain trust of Hollywood’s most famous writers and directors to help prevent the next 9/11.

Interesting but out of touch

The first episode was interesting and funny. I bet if he stayed on the question how the culture changed after 9/11 (comedy, TV, education, etc.) it would of been more popular. Towards the end, it sounded as if he was on the other side and wanted to convince us that we (Americans) over reacted and are to blame for the past 20 years. It’s easy to criticize 20 years later. I’m not saying it’s not healthy to criticize but how different are your thoughts now compared to 9/12?

Important and well done

Unique and vital picture of the post-9/11 US we do not often hear or think about.

Spot on

This is the first podcast review I’ve ever written. And I went out of my way to figure out how to write a review. Because this podcast is that good. I spent the 90’s accumulating degrees in political science, political communications, policy analysis…and 9/11 was my capstone course in global terrorism. But I kept my opinion close to my chest post-9/11 because, apparently, being an informed patriot was unacceptable. This podcast lays out my thoughts at that time and since, pretty much in order, and now I can just point friends to this podcast instead of doing the intellectual heavy lifting during cocktail conversations. Because I like canapés.
