To Periscope Depth (feat. John Clear)
On this week’s episode, Noah and Chance dive below the surface and into the high stakes, misunderstanding-wrought world of submarine movies. With a little help from retired navy man and sub expert John Clear, they take on the undeniable plot of “The Hunt for Red October” (1990), the bad movie genetics of “Below” (2002) and the nuclear acting war happening in “Crimson Tide” (1995).
