A shorter episode this time, as we (mostly Sarah) didn't do as much homework as we should have.
But we learn something new about a certain pipe, and we discover that Ian does have some academic training, or at least experience in pipe collecting. 
Stay safe and positive in these times!

We follow our main characters as they explore the insides of The Charlotte.
Help us survive through the cold weather and the manic video editing of this sequence, and thanks again for listening!

Back at it again, with a short one this time. Not a ton happening in this minute, but a few new historical factoids from Sarah and a look at the screenplay from 2003 help us through. Hope you enjoy!

We have another fun minute for you, fellow Nicolas Cage admirers! We talk about the finding of the Charlotte and its miraculous one day recovery. Then, we dive into the details of Sean Bean on another Actor Spotlight. Plus, Sarah ruins all of my bits because she's too intuitive. :( 
Thanks for listening! Let us know your opinions!

We are sad to have learned of Christopher Plummer's passing. What a tremendous actor, but we always have the Sound of Music to remember him with. 
In this very educational minute we learn about snow vehicles, exploration of the north pole, and Nicolas Cage's many accomplishments. 
Hope you enjoy!

Monday Feb 01, 2021

As we wrap up the first 5 minutes of National Treasure we talk about CGI faces, realistic dialogue, and ironically make another connection to "The Sound of Music". 
Stay tuned, we have exciting things planned for the future...
Also, we have been officially added to the Movies by Minutes website!!!
Go check it out.

Hey listeners! We are excited to continue to bring you the minutes, and we appreciate you listening to us stumble over our words and enjoy a movie we love. 
In this minute, we talk a little bit about the clue which Grandpa Christopher Plummer gives to young Ben Gates, Sarah gets a little slap happy, and we get a little off topic. 
See you in the next minute, and don't forget to check out Star Wars Minute, the podcast that inspired all of this.
