TruStory CrossTalk: The Law in Film

It’s time to cross wires! This week on the show, Pete and Seth bring Andy Nelson of The Next Reel Film Podcast to talk about their favorite experiences of the law in film. Part of CrossTalk from TruStory FM.

The Next Reel Film Podcasts have been covering film and popular culture since 2011, dissecting movies in obsessive detail. They’ve even covered legal movies, but only as ignoramuses in the audience. This week, they get to find out how much they got right, and how much they should care.

We all know Seth’s love of movies, even if he doesn’t always back it up with an encyclopedic knowledge of industry trivia. This week, law school will finally pay off as he teaches the movie guys a thing or two.
