The best Beatles podcast I’ve heard or discovered so far!
I may not have listened to every episode, but of the majority I’ve listened to it’s been an entertaining and informative listen. There’s nothing better than learning more about something you already knew about, but with a bit of humour thrown in for good measure.
The stand out episodes for me were the white album episodes. Those two made me laugh. And plus I’m always intrigued when someone says they don’t like something when the vast majority think it’s great and why they don’t like it. It’s also great to know that when fellow listeners share similar vibes to myself when listening to that album in particular. There’s a creepiness to the white album that the other album don’t have.
These shows are quite simply perfectly produced. Chris does an amazing job with every episode, both the production and as the host. The guests are a fantastic mix and you can tell just how much they all love the greatest band ever.
The Get Back series is an astonishing piece of work. Every Beatles fan should thank Chris just for those 22 shows.
So good I listened twice
