ONE HEAT MINUTE: Episode #130 - GARTH FRANKLIN (DARK HORIZONS) & STU COOTE (THE SINNER FILES)
ONE HEAT MINUTE is the podcast examining Michael Mann's 1995 L.A crime epic HEAT, minute by minute. It's the 130th minute (2:09:00 -2:10:00) - host Blake Howard joins two friends of OHM - movie website original gangster Garth Franklin and co-host of The Sinner Files, Stu Coote. Blake, Garth and Stu get busy getting uncomfortable in the excruciating "Stockholm syndrome" of Neil's occupation of Eady's space before somehow digressing into filthy descriptions of the sexual scents of the L.A flora.
