There's only one way to find out!

Episode 77: Red Heat! (with Jessica McLeod!)

This week original host Jessica McLeod makes a triumphant return visit as we try to wrap our pretty heads around the America vs Russia/Belushi vs Schwarzenegger madness that is the novelization of Cold War buddy cop classic Red Heat! Did any of that make sense? This book and movie doesn't make any damn sense. But Jessica is back so let's break out our worst Arnold impressions and go to town! This is Old Skool BWB at its finest!
