Podcast - Discussing THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES


A few months ago I had the pleasure of talking about one of my favorite movies -- The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) with Paul Francis Sullivan, a.k.a "Sully" for the Movies by Minutes podcast series.  "The Best Minutes Podcast" covers the movie in several increments with different hosts and different guests, each examining a slice of that movie.

Sully and I had two episodes together and it was really one of most enjoyable experiences for me.  As classic film fans, we know how wonderful it is to meet people who not only share our passion for these movies, but who can discuss them with knowledge and insight.  Sully knows the film well, and he knows about the era in which it was produced, so our conversation was a blast from beginning to end.

Divided into two podcast episodes recently posted, here is a link to the first one (Minute 146 - Al Here?)

and the second one, (Minute 129 - I'm Quite Fond of You, Too).

I hope you enjoy listening to them half as much as I did doing the interview.

I will definitely get around to the podcast. I think a late night listen is just what the doctor ordered.

Thanks, Paddy. I hope you're doing better and can look forward to a much more pleasant summer from here on out. I know it will take time.
