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. In a special bonus episode, I join staff writer at WBUR's The ARTery and a contributing writer at North Shore Movies - my favourite Bostonian - Sean Burns. Blake and Sean discuss the breaking news of stand-over tapes to find votes from President Trump and unfathomable stupidity that continues to dribble through the death rattle of the Trump Presidency.
About Sean Burns
Sean Burns is a Staff Writer at WBUR's The ARTery and a Contributing Writer at North Shore Movies. He was Philadelphia Weekly's Lead Film Critic from 1999 through 2013 and worked as the Movies Section Contributing Editor at The Improper Bostonian from 2006 until 2014. His reviews, interviews and essays have also appeared in Metro, The Village Voice, The Boston Herald, Nashville Scene, Time Out New York, Philadelphia City Paper, Movie Mezzanine, The House Next Door and RogerEbert.com.
A 2013 nominee for the National Society of Film Critics, Burns was a recurring guest on the late David Brudnoy's WBZ 1030 AM radio show, and in 2002 received an award for Excellence in Criticism from the Greater Philadelphia Society of Professional Journalists.
His writing has been called "jocular but serious, more like a 1940′s daily reporter pounding out columns on a manual typewriter than a typical 21st-century navel-gazing film critic." Meanwhile, his sisters still tell him that he "swears too much and drives like an old lady."
