The American President
THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT President Andrew Shepherd unexpectedly falls in love with Sydney Wade, an environmental lobbyist. Suddenly President Shepherd must confront new issues: declining approval ratings, an inquiring press, and an aggressive political opponent. Now Shepherd must choose between his political career and his love for Sydney. Craig and Alan are joined by Rob Ervin (@yesTHATRobErvin on twitter) to talk about a West Wing test run, Alan on Lettterboxd, scandalous non-scandals and the movie "The American President" on this week’s Matinee Heroes!
