Podcast for every John Wayne fan
Love John Wayne films and there are very few podcasts that talk about his body of work, so it was nice to find one that was willing to look back at his career. Really like that Laurie is looking at the films as a newcomer who was never a fan of the Duke. Worth a listen if you like John Wayne films. When are you going to review the Searchers??
