This week on our movie podcast ‘… Just to be Nominated,’ we’re talking about films that paint a picture of America

Last time you heard from us, we picked out some of our favorite films and shows on the new HBO streaming platform HBO Max.

For this episode, which we recorded on the Monday after Independence Day weekend, we assembled a collection of movies that paint a well-rounded picture of America.

Listen all the way to the end and you’ll hear our unexpected recommendations for ridiculous new game shows!

Links to where you can stream or rent all of our picks can be found in the show notes here.

Just to be Nominated is hosted and produced by Chris Lay, the podcast operations manager for Lee, along with Bruce Miller, the editor of the Sioux City Journal, and Jared McNett, a reporter for the Globe Gazette in Mason City, Iowa.
