xXx: State of the Union (w/Jerika Layne)

Listeners Choice Month rolls on with the Vin Diesel-less sequel, xXx: State of the Union starring Ice Cube. Joining the guys is extreme sports expert Jerika, who is a tad dismayed to discover the lack of extreme sports in this particular installment. There is plenty to talk about though like a debate on Ice Cube as a hyper-kinetic action hero, the wildest fiddle band of all-time, TV dinners used to simulate body heat, the World War IV references (did WW3 already happen in the world of this movie?), the haunting and relevant plot surrounding insurrectionists at the US Capitol and much more.


Listeners Choice comes to a close next week with the contractually-obligated musical dud, From Justin to Kelly.
