Double Edged Double Bill Episode 129: The President Must Escape From Air Force One

Election Day is upon us in the US. So, Double Edged Double Bill is taking a break from the chaos by watching two films about fictional cinematic presidents. First, Kurt Russell as Snake Plisken has to save the very British president Donald Pleasance in John Carpenter’s classic Escape From New York! Then, President Harrison Ford has to get Russian terrorists off his titular plane in Air Force One. Together, Adam and Thomas answer all the vital questions. How elaborate is Snake’s lower tattoo? Is Air Force One secretly a Quantum Leap movie? Which two films will they choose for next week’s episode about the late Sir Sean Connery? Well, do your civic duty and listen to this episode while you’re in line to vote to find out!
