Episode 101. WWII: Propaganda

Season 4 of the podcast is kicking off with a deep-dive into the cinema before, during, and after World War II. For the first installment Alex and Jonathan look at the propaganda of the war in Triumph of the Will (1935), Why We Fight: Prelude to War (1942), and Momotaro, Sacred Sailors (1945). We talk about the importance of propaganda in forming an argument, ways that propaganda can backfire, and how propaganda has evolved post-WWII.
