Kilmercast Episode 3: Top Gun

This episode was all about Top Gun.

We talked about Tom Cruise’s boyishness, the Cold War, the awfulness of singing naval airmen, and how boring this movie about plane fighting manages to be. There are some significant upgrades in this episode — we have segments, a new microphone for Laurel, and even some outside audio.

There is a trigger warning in the opening of the episode to acknowledge our discussion of The Invisible War, a documentary about sexual abuse and women in the military.

    Another excellent podcast episode! Fyi, Girls Nation and Boys Nation have a tradition of singing a song to each other at the tattoo/dance they meet up at. Apparently the tradition (and the reality the year I was there) is for the guys to sing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” to the girls BECAUSE of this movie. If y’all thought it was awkward in the movie, imagine 100 HS junior boys singing it to 100 HS girls under the auspices of the American Legion.
