The year is 1968. The setting is Chicago, at the Democratic National Convention. Tensions are high. And Lex and Brian are ready to hold court, with a podcast about Aaron Sorkin’s 9th film, The Trial of Chicago 7.
Sorkin assembles yet another incredible cast, this time with Sasha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Jeremy Strong, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. We won’t spoil our takes on the film until you listen to the show, but we’ll just say this: Some of the cast is guilty… of the best accent work yet in Sorkin’s oeuvre. Bang the gavel — it’s Sorkin time.
