Back in 1984, Miami Vice changed the TV landscape not only for the decade, but for generations of police drama’s since. Miami Vice’s cultural impact on TV was not only with police drama’s, but bringing in the best of popular music with each and every episode. Go With the Heat is a serial podcast going an episode at a time and digging into the cultural phenomenon that is Miami Vice from the perspective of hosts who have never seen an episode prior to starting this podcast.
Who We Are
I am the brains of the operation. When I say brains, I’m the facilitator of all the necessary tools making this show happen. My normal TV watching habits are reruns of The Simpsons, Futurama, and pretty much any modern SciFi. The only police drama I’ve ever watched is The Wire. In case you’re into that sort of thing, this show is entirely recorded, edited and published on 100% Linux.
The TV guru of the group. I’ve watched every TV show ever made. You name it, I’ve watched it. CSI, NCIS, Homicide, Law & Order, I’ve seen them all. I’ve even watched Simon & Simon, Cagney & Lacey and dare I say… Alien Nation. No joke is too far or any reference will slip past me.
The mega Miami Vice fan. Melissa has seen every episode at least 15 times and owns every Don Johnson album. Melissa cares deeply about every Vice team member and even calls Castillo, “Dad”. She is also the voice of reason on the show and always see’s the big picture.
