Episode 13 - Suburban Commando (1991, dir. Burt Kennedy)

Welcome to the first When Wrestlers Act podcast of 2015.

If you're not familiar with what we do, we review movies and TV shows starring wrestlers every fortnight.

For our thirteenth episode Jon Cronshaw is joined by Colin Cox to review Suburban Commando starring Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker.

This has been one of those 'by popular demand' deals, as we get requests for this and They Live probably more than anything else.

If you like what we do, please help to spread the word - follow our Twitter, like our Facebook page, subscribe to our YouTube channel and review us iTunes.

If you have any suggestions or requests for future episodes, please let us know.

Regular listeners may notice that the image for this week’s episode isn’t our usual WWA logo, but instead says Je Suis Charlie.

If you’re not sure what this is about, please Google it.

On a personal note, I was deeply affected by this event.

When I’m not watching movies starring wrestlers and podcasting about them, I work in a newsroom as a political correspondent.

For me, journalism and satire or the cornerstones of healthy democracy – having the freedom to be critical of powerful organisations or individuals is essential.

I may not agree with some of the images that Charlie Hebdo has published over the years, but I will fight tooth and nail for their right to do it.

Self-censorship or ‘defiant acts’ is no way to deal with terrorism – just get on with things the way you always have and don’t let their threats change how you behave.

Freedom of speech and freedom of the press are worth fighting for.

Je Suis Charlie
