All the President's Minutes is a podcast where conversations about movies, journalism, politics and history meet. Each show we use the seminal and increasingly prescient 1976 film All The President's Men as a portal, to engage with the themes and the warnings of the film resonating since its release. For minute 58, I join a film critic with bylines at RogerEbert.com, ThePlaylist, Vulture, Consequence of Sound, Polygon, Film School Rejects, Robert Daniels. Robert and I discuss what it's like to be "Presidential Nerd," having a great teacher in high school who handed a DVD copy of President's for a teenager with a conspiratorial itch to scratch and the perpetual slow death of the concept of "media."
