    REPLAY: The Pride and The Power

Exactly what I want to listen to

Thread is such a great podcast series. I loved season one. I’ve long been intrigued about the connection between Salinger’s novel and Chapman shooting Lennon. I think Lennon’s worldview and the constant shifting of them as a reason for Chapman’s assassination of him could’ve been developed more.
I couldn’t help but connect Lenin’s hatred of music and Lennon’s death.
