    When Movies and Books Depart and Converge

    Today we will shoot for the stars and maybe shoot some bugs as we talk about the 1997 film Starship Troopers. The movie is based on the 1959 novel Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein. In this episode, Mustache Chris and I will talk about some of the big themes about society and humanity that this film and movie bring up. They are universal themes that director Paul Verhoeven and author Robert Heinlein took in very different directions.

A Great Podcast

If you want to understand the nexus between art and life, between movies and history, this is your podcast. Steve is brilliant at giving you the context of some of the biggest movies in film history. He has great guests and just does a great job with presenting the facts. I highly recommend!

One of the Best Podcasts There Is

Simply put, this is a fantastic podcast. Steve is a great interviewer, and he has a real knack for picking top notch guests. He and his guests discuss a wide variety of books and movies, on all kinds of topics. My favorites are the episodes on historical movies, but there are so many other great topics as well. Make this podcast a regular part of your podcast rotation. You'll be glad you did.
