UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED! Their Finest Hour returns to Vigilant Liberty Radio live on Monday, August 18th, at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific! This week, we’re taking a cultural excursion into film and cinema!
Joining me for the program will be Chris “Cranky T-Rex” (@CrankyTRex), whose movie reviews have been great content here at TFH and Amy (@moderncomments), host of VLR’s Modern Comments Radio (Wednesdays, 10pm Eastern).
We’ll be talking about our favorite movies, and how we as conservatives/libertarians/conservatarians need to use what the culture gives us rather than reflexively fight against it. We’ll also discuss how films that set out to deliver a conservative message aren’t helpful if the product isn’t up to par.
The phone lines will also be opened at some point, and we’re definitely doing a two-hour show, so be sure to join us in the VLR chatroom with embedded show player (refresh at showtime for the live stream), or you can listen in the player in the right sidebar, direct on Spreaker, or on one of Spreaker’s mobile device apps.
Here’s the replay; click “Spreaker” in the player to get the site where you can download the MP3 for offline listening!
And a further update – here are each of our “Top Five” lists from the broadcast. We gave explanations during the show about why we picked them, so you’re not off the hook for listening if you haven’t already!
