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)...
