San Diego Political Podcast Movies and Politics

This time on San Diego Political Podcast I sat down and talked to Josh Board at Polite Provisions and we spend the better part of an hour talking about movie and politics.

Josh ate a massive pork sandwich and was a pleasure to hang out with.

He doesn’t think movies play an important role politically while I think they do.

Oh and about 3 minutes in we talked about the Equal Time for more info on that go HERE.
