Go With The Heat #165 - Action Jackson

It is well known how much we love Carl Weathers. So there was absolutely zero chance we weren't going to cover Action Jackson. One of our all-time favorite action movies that is the textbook definition of what made 80's action great. We love this movie.

We also have a lot of fun in this podcast episode! We swoon over the cast, in particular that scene of Carl all greased up, and get down on more Vanity music.

There's also big news! Last episode we learned about Attitude, an awesome band from the Bay Area that also had a song in Tiger Claws. Well, guess what! They released a new album and we got our hands on it!

Go support this fantastic band that is still rocking! See and buy the album here:
