Released Thursday, 18th February 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
For the last episode of season one, Fran and Babs are joined by a special guest, the multi-talented Matt Hoss: comedian, podcaster, Twitcher, author and lover of HAIR METAL! 
Matt became enamoured with hair metal - or is it glam rock? - as a teenager, and still holds a torch for the genre. In this episode, he tries to convince us Skid Row should definitely be more famous (even though they're problematic, which we also discuss) and joins Fran and Babs in having a cathartic rant and tour through the worst of Bon Jovi's back catalogue (we apologise in advance, Bon Jovi fans)...

You can find the playlist for this episode on Spotify - it includes all songs from our playlists, plus bonus ones from other artists we've discussed during the episode.
Catch Sebastian Bach as Gil from Gilmore Girls covering Hollaback Girl on YouTube. The book Babs mentioned is Under My Thumb: Songs That Hate Women and the Wome…, an essay collection edited by Rhian Jones and Eli Davies.
Matt's website has links to all of his work - we highly recommend checking out his podcasts, especially Castival and Miffs. You can stream and buy his stand-up debut Here Comes Your Man - and a few other things - on his Bandcamp page.  
Follow him on Twitch @MattHossComedy for regular comedy broadcasts - and you can also find him @MattHossComedy on all the socials. Matt has also written a speculative fiction book about the environmental end of the world called PURIFY which you can buy online here
