On this weeks episode we're talking about the pleasure and pain of family vacations, or family trips as Old Boy refers to them.  We breakdown some stats on how much families spend on vacation per year, it's probably more than you think, and how many days on average the family vacation lasts.  Then we reminisce about our favorite childhood vacations and what we look forward to taking with our kids.  Also, we refer to Disney World as Disney Land about 50 times in the episode, so just get past that.

Quick, what was your favorite toy growing up?  Chances are one or two specific toys popped into your head right then.  If you have kids, what do you think their answer will be when they're your age?  On this weeks episode we're unboxing (not literally) the toys that our kids are playing with and comparing them to the toys we grew up with.  Tune in as Old Boy discusses the disturbing fact that the Peppa Pig themed kitchen set has a sound effect that is obviously bacon frying, Bucky complains about how none of his kids toys are fun enough for him to play with,  then old man Juicebox explains the difference between a Remote Control Car and a Radio Control Car.  So cuddle up with My Buddy, snuggle up with that Glow Worm, and pop another clip in that Nerf gun, it's time for another episode of the Raising Nashville Podcast.

What do prostitution, prohibition and Jimi Hendrix have in common?  Well..Nashville of course. 

Did you know that Nashville was the first city to legalize prostitution? No?  Us neither. Did you know that Jimi Hendrix spent his early years shredding the streets of Nashville when he was still an opener? No? Us neither.  Finally, did you know this city was the origin point for ALL OF Prohibition? I mean we were 2018’s number 1 drinking city in America. C’mon man.

On this week’s episode of Raising Nashville we dive into 3 things you may not know about Nashville.  From the civil war to the 60’s this place was pretty instrumental in firsts. One first we are happy to own and two we wish we could forget..but hey, at least you can say you’re from here right?

From the original Pontoon Saloon in the 1800s, to the clubs on Jefferson street, to a notorious gunfight in the streets of Music City we break down 3 legacies that will forever live in Nashville history infamy.  The guys also get gritty on people who say they’re ‘from here’ even though ‘here’ has become a pretty broad geographical area. We also offer tips for DIY STD solutions, discuss an interstate that destroyed Nashville’s soul and let our listenership know what Dr. Hey’s been up to.

So grab your hammers, guitars and guns and get ready for this week’s episode of Raising Nashville Podcast: The More You Know.
