13 Assassins

February 18, 2023


Shinzaemon Shimada leads a team of assassins in 19th-century Japan to eliminate a ruthless Lord who is wreaking havoc against his own people. Hired secretly by a government official hoping to end the Lord’s reign of terror, Shimada recruits the best samurai in Japan and then sets a trap for the lord’s large contingent of faithful bodyguards.

Craig and guest co-host Brendan Agnew  (@BLCAgnew on twitter) discuss dad-bod samurai, getting the band back together, Japanese mythology and the movie “13 Assassins” on this week’s Matinee Heroes.
