Devin and I review Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut and the most luscious romance of the year. (They’re not the same movie.) (And no, we didn’t plan for the titles of the two subjects of this episode to rhyme.)

Happy new year!

The M&M Report: “Steve Jobs”

Jobs

On this episode of The M&M Report, Devin Mitchell and I discuss the notorious box-office bomb Steve Jobs, a big-budget prestige drama from a major studio that’s performing almost exactly the same as the 2013 indie drama Jobs (starring Ashton Freaking Kutcher).

The M&M Report, Episode 18: The Wings of an Eagle

West Wing

Listen to Episode 18 here.

As of this week, The M&M Report has migrated to The Eagle, American University’s student newspaper. Devin Mitchell and I are very excited to bring the podcast to a larger audience, but our regular followers needn’t fear that we’ll be selling out as a result. The M&M Report will still be your source for pop culture analysis that strives to be both fun and substantive.

This week, Devin and I talked about The West Wing. Devin loves this show with an emotionally invested passion with which I wouldn’t dare compete, but we had a lively chat about the show’s merits, a few of its flaws and our favorite episodes.

After that, we ushered in the triumphant return of Devin Doesn’t Like Things. This week, Devin is fed up with the incessant parade of awards shows and their surprisingly troubling implications.

Next week, we’ll be back with special guests and much more. Until then…thanks for listening!
