Episode 22: Judas Priest Part 2- Rob Halford’s Coming Out Party

Happy Pride month, kids! Maggie and Ashleigh are kicking off this month with the conclusion of our Judas Priest story and talking about the God of Metal himself coming out of the closet. There are also some discussions of the influence of the gay culture on heavy metal and some drunken movie tangents. So curl up with a Little Wolf Pale Ale from Zero Gravity Brewing and get ready to learn yourself about one of the great musicians of the LGBT+ community!
