Cinemaholics Podcast – The Plot Against America

Special guest Emily Kubincanek joins us for a bonus review of The Plot Against America, a new HBO mini-series starring Zoe Kazan, Winona Ryder, John Turturro, and many more. From David Simon (creator of The Wire), this alternate history drama follows a Jewish family in 1940s New Jersey trying to grapple with the presidency of Charles Lindbergh, who wins on a platform of staying out of World War II and has a history of antisemitism.

Our theme music this week comes from the soundtrack for The Plot Against America.

  1. I caught up with this show right before the finale and I was utterly stunned by how clearly it relates to today. I grew up in a Jewish family in New York, so not far obviously from the setting of this show, and it served as a terrifying reminder.
