EP. 80 — The Best Years of Our Lives

Amy & Paul return home to 1946’s post-WWII drama The Best Years Of Our Lives! They praise the natural performance of first-time actor Harold Russell, compare the film’s style to noir movies and Network, and learn how the Hayes code circumscribed the film’s portrayal of veterans. Plus: Comedian Santina Muha talks about why disabled people’s representation is so important.
