Welcome to Tell Me What You Know, a weekly podcast that challenges each host to tell the other what they know about selected topics. You'll quickly find out that the only thing these two are sure of is that they know very little. Often wrong, but never in doubt.
On this episode of Tell Me What You Know, we’re looking at the good ole days of hair metal. Some of you might not like where we draw the lines on metal but you’re gonna have to deal with it because we want to talk about Ozzy, Leppard, Poison, and Halen. These bands created songs with the ability to take you back in time to your 18th birthday, strap you in the driver’s seat of Chevelle, and make you feel like you can run through a brick wall. With the passing of Eddie Van Halen, we’ll take you through their origins playing venues up and down the west coast before scoring their big break and putting out hits like Panama, Jump, and Hot for Teacher. Sit down. Shut up. This is Tell Me What You Know.

On this episode of Tell Me What You Know we’re getting spooky and talking about all things Halloween. We’ll dive in to a bit of history touching on how we all came to be carving pumpkins, knocking on stranger’s doors demanding candy, and dressing up in our scariest, funniest, or sexiest costumes. October 31 marks the date of this divisive celebration that either compels you to go buy dry ice and scare all the pre-teens in your neighborhood or to deadlock your door and curl up in a warm blanket with a cup of pumpkin spiced coffee till November 1.

Man I wish I lived back then. Are you not entertained? This is Tell Me What You Know.
