THE GRAND GESTURE: The American President

Since the extent of our research on AARON SORKIN was one of us watching an episode of THE WEST WING and the other pulling up an IMDb tab on this accomplished writer, your hosts bring in a Sorkin expert in JESSE SCHOBER of the FIELD OF SCREAMS podcast. And no, it's not about Sorkin, but Jesse has compiled all of his knowledge on this man into one great speech that is to be found at the end of this show (so you have to listen). Before that though we go back to the good old days of American politics, or at the very least American politics as a rom-com in ROB REINER's THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT starring ANNETTE BENING and MICHAEL DOUGLAS. As usual we find ourselves unable to recast Bening but often get confused by the various Presidential figures from the Sorkin-verse when MARTIN SHEEN makes an appearance, but none of that really matters because every character in this movie has a Grand Gesture worthy speech! Listen to them here.
