    "Fab Bag" Part II: More Beatles Games

    "Fab Bag" Part II: More Beatles Games

    A noble attempt to recapture the fun of the previous Beatles Games episode. 
    Some discussion: Which songs would you most like to have said you wrote? What would Paul say about Klaus? Which is the Beatles of social media platforms? How often can the subject of "bifurcated genitals" make its way into a Beatles discussion?
    Panel:  Will Hines, Brett Morris, Katie Plattner, Joel Spence

    Fab Bag Volume 1 (Beatles Games)

    Fab Bag Volume 1 (Beatles Games)

    The panel plays a variety of games: F**k Marry Kill, Would You Rather, Listener Questions, Who Are the Beatles of X?, Which X is Which Beatle and perhaps regrettably: Klaustalk.
    We call it "Beatles Games" in the audio of the episode, but then after we were done Joel suggested "Fab Bag" and I like it so here it is in the podcast title.
    Lots of explicit language for the first five minutes, for almost no reason at all.
    Panel: Will Hines, Brett Morris, Katie Plattner, Joel Spence

    With the Beatles - A Second Look

    With the Beatles - A Second Look

    The panel takes a look at the Beatles second album "With the Beatles" (going by the British releases). It seems ot be overlooked in favor of Please Please Me and A Hard Day's Night, but we throw in the three mighty singles they also released around the same time: "From Me to You," "She Loves You" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand" --- whew, looks a lot better now, doesn't it? And it didn't look bad before!
    This is the second time we've gone over this album for this podcast, for those obsessive SIWJGTATB fans.
    Okay, and NOW the podcast is finished. Wink!
    Panel: Will Hines, Brett Morris, Katie Plattner, Joel Spence

    Please Please Me (album) - A Second Look

    Please Please Me (album) - A Second Look

    Recorded on March 18, 2020 while the panel members were trapped in their homes because of the Corona virus! Consider this a bonus episode, or unreleased track, or a momentary change of heart -- at any rate, it's a new episode.
    The panel looks at the Beatles' first album "Please Please Me." It's the second time this podcast has gone over that album. The first time was the very first episode, which was the episode that your host, Will Hines, was LEAST prepared for. Now, all these years later, he's ready to take another crack at this album.
    Standard panel of: Will Hines, Brett Morris, Katie Plattner and Joel Spence are on hand, remotely, to tackle this first, amazing, album.
    Okay, and NOW the podcast is finished.

    Final Episode / Let It Be (film)

    Final Episode / Let It Be (film)

    We go over the film Let It Be, the documentary that lets us see the Beatles... be quietly annoyed with each other. But also lets us see the glorious rooftop performance!
    It's also the FINAL EPISODE of this podcast! It's been mostly dormant for about a year, and I felt like it was time to officially put it to bed. It's strange how a project occupies mental space until you really say THE END (Beatles reference).
    I have loved doing this podcast so much and want to thank everyone who's ever listened to any part of it! And to all the amazing panelists who have ever been on it! 
    My final hot take on the Beatles is: they're great!
    Your friend in Beatledom, Will Hines

    Jake Fogelnest's Twelve Song White Album

    Jake Fogelnest's Twelve Song White Album

    Comedy writer/producer Jake Fogelnest comes on the podcast and announces his opinion of what a 12 song White Album should be. This was an unsolicited opinion that Jake brought on, and it's interesting and great. An interesting side note is that Will and Jake talked for over 2 hours and Will decided to include only this. The rest was great, but it was mostly Will bringing stuff up and Jake responding, and the White Album stuff was the stuff that Jake brought up of his own volition and passion, and so host/editor Will made the call and here we are. Hope you enjoy the ep!

And in the end...

Sorry to see this one wrap up! I only recently discovered this podcast and have loved working through the back catalogue. A must for Beatles fans - for me the standouts were the eps where Will played records for his friend Eugene who isn’t a hardcore fan - so much fun. Thanks for a great podcast!

Thanks

Will, say it ain’t so! Have enjoyed the podcast immensely. Sorry I won’t have you and your friends to listen to on the way to work again! Thanks for a great show.

Good, but....

They should just let Will do the show. Having those two women on adds little value other than to push their own gender studies philosophy.
