The Patriot - You Shouldn't Hatchet When You're Angry (with What Were We Watching?)

Hello again, dear listeners! This episode, in honor of American Independence Day, we bring you a cross-over episode with the podcast What Were We Watching? about the 2000 Roland Emmerich film The Patriot, starring Mel Gibson. Spoiler alert: it's not very historically accurate - shocker! We hope you enjoy, and check out What Were We Watching? for more discussions of the nostalgic movies and TV shows from our childhood and adolescence (AKA the 90s and early 2000s)!
