In this episode we take a dive into numismatics, learn that donkeys are different, and discuss the practice of the Billy Graham Rule in Christian culture.

Episode 30: Stop-Loss


This week on Viewing Party, we’re back in the Tatumverse as we discuss Stop-Loss, a film about the toll of the Iraq war on young soldiers in the 2000s. In this episode we try to follow the plot of this film, read you the majority of a Wikipedia page and talk about a terrible movie with a talking skateboard. Bonus: Katie makes the argument for your hosts sharing a husband!
