, [00:00:00] this is beyond the big screen podcast with your host, Steve Guerra. Welcome back to beyond the big screen today. I'm very happy to be joined by prof CJ of the dangerous history podcast. We're going to discuss a very interesting bit of history from the 1970s and 1980s through the lens of the movie American made starring Tom cruise released just in 2017.

It gives you a really different perspective on how things went down. Yeah. Yeah.
