13 episodes

An album by album re-watch of Billy Joel's career, with snarky and occasionally informed co-hosts Meg Donahue and Adam Ragusea. This 13-episode miniseries starts with reviews of proto-Joel releases from Billy's boyhood band The Hassles and his infamous organ-metal duo Attila, then proceeds through his solo albums of widely varying quality but uniform Joel-ness. Relive the insufferable sincerity of "Piano Man," the poofy-haired smooth sax lines of "The Stranger," the late-80s cocaine sheen of "Storm Front" and all the (mis)steps between.

So oh o oh predictable

Mildy amusing, mainly irritating piss take of Billy and his music. They missed the point a lot of the time but did have some semi-decent insights at other times. Sounds like Meg is a “guilty pleasure” type Billy Joel fan as opposed to genuine fan. It kept me interested enough to work my way through every episode on a weekend, so I guess I enjoy being irritated. The “Joel Power Rankings” were all over the shop...

Oh, Billy

This podcast had the unlikely effect of making me like Billy Joel less while also pointing what's interesting about him. Great show.

Saracasm is an expression of self-loathing

She loves Billy. He hates Billy. And they don’t like themselves much either, evidently.
