Can a podcast teach you to love?

I listened because I thought this would be a fun goof on war films. It is that. Indeed, it’s a veritable pupu platter of dad jokes, puns, and references that will entertain listeners of all backgrounds as they learn some actual historical context of films they may know rather well. But wait… there’s more. The undeniable chemistry of the hosts is irresistible. Dr. Jagel is a young, charming scholar, the perfect foil to ex-CIA operative (allegedly) Dr. Jones, a man hardened by the things he’s seen. Together their synergy will bring out the better angels of our nature. This is the podcast America, nay the world, needs if we ever want to learn how to love again. Plus, Operation Dumbo Drop slaps!
