Carl? Karl?


Listener John wrote in to tell us he watched the first two minutes of the 1939 movie "Confessions of a Nazi Spy," and noticed something very interesting. You'll see it, starting around 2:00: a woman sending a letter to a "Karl Kassel," we assume to complain how Charlie Pierce only got thirty seconds in lightning fill in the blanks while Mo Rocca got a whole minute.

[Haven't watched the whole movie, but we hope and assume Karl Kassel ends up being a good guy.]
