Billie & Sophie

In this episode, you'll hear Sophie provide an excellent explanation of ranks in the U.S. Army and Billie nerd out over Vietnam War documentaries. There's also a power outage! Thankfully, we do manage to talk about the Academy Award winning movie, Platoon. And we came to a definitive conclusion: If you're going to watch any movie about the Vietnam War, watch the one made by an actual veteran of the Vietnam War, Oliver Stone (who also won an Academy Award for Best Director for this film). This film stars Charlie Sheen, Willem Dafoe, Tom Berenger, John C. McGinley, Forest Whitaker, and Johnny Depp to name a few.
