What actually happened

For the average movie goer a 1-2 hour dramatized visual recounting of history is plenty. But for the movie buff who wants to dive deeper into a story, or more particularly the history behind a movie then you need to listen to this podcast.

Jason, unfolds a timeline of historical events to help keep Hollywood honest. From movies such as Dunkirk to The Post we are given a glimpse into the geopolitical climate at the time of the movies plot.

Listening to this podcast will give the listener a greater understanding of history as it actually happened. I highly recommend this to any history/movie buff who has the desire to take one step further into the plot of a film and uncover its origins.
