Dogma (1999)

Episode 105 (February 23, 2024)

In what is quite possibly the most snoogans episode we’ve ever recorded, we examine Kevin Smith’s Dogma (1999). At Laci’s behest, we take our maiden voyage into the View Askewniverse to see what this controversial, transgressive, downright RUDE film has to say about religion, politics, and the state of things in Clinton’s America at the end of history.
