Ep. 16 The Searchers

When you think of Classic Hollywood Westerns two names should come to mind: John Wayne and John Ford. The Searchers (1956) may be the ultimate combination of these two¬† superpowers, a gorgeous epic spanning years in the American West. Its sprawling timeline and cast list challenges our duo’s alcohol challenged memory, forcing them to actually look something up before the podcast ends. Steve nurses a beer by the fire while Jon does his best to convince everyone that champagne cocktail is an appropriately rugged drink for the Duke.
