All the President's Minutes is a podcast where conversations about movies, journalism, politics and history meet. Each show we use the seminal and increasingly prescient 1976 film All The President's Men as a portal, to engage with the themes and the warnings of the film resonating since its release. For minute 131, I join writers of The Post, writer-producer Liz Hannah (writer of The Long Shot) and Josh Singer (Academy Award-winning co-writer of Spotlight). Liz, Josh and I discuss showing The Post in front of Woodward and Bernstein, compare Hanks and Robards "Bradlee" performances and finally the most "movie" moment of the entire film.
About Liz Hannah
Liz Hannah is the writer of The Post, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. The original screenplay was nominated for a Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award. The Post was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture, as well as Best Actress for Meryl Streep. Along with co-writer, Josh Singer, Hannah was the recipient of both the 2018 Writer’s Guild’s Paul Selvin Award and the 2018 Humanitas Prize for feature drama.
Originally from New York, Hannah moved to Los Angeles to attend graduate school at AFI. After graduating with an MFA in Producing, Hannah spent the next few years working in development at Denver & Delilah before eventually leaving to write full time. Hannah’s script for The Post was ranked second on the 2016 Black List after being purchased by Amy Pascal’s Pascal Pictures two days before the US Presidential election.
Currently, Hannah is developing a female anthology series for UCP, a limited series for Amazon with Bradley Whitford and Amy Pascal based on the book, The Mercury 13, and a feature entitled, The Only Plane In The Sky, for MGM, which was adapted from the Politico article by Garrett M. Graff.
