UNLOCKED BONUS EPISODE: "Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga
Just for you, we're letting you take a peek at our bonus episodes! This is what you're missing on Patreon where we talk about one movie a month, voted on by you! Here we say our piece on Will Ferrell's Netflix comedy "Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga."
68: "Band on the Run" vs. "Mr. Blue Sky"
Can one of the most Beatles-esque bands of the '70s take down an actual Beatle? Electric Light Orchestra's beloved "Mr. Blue Sky" takes on Paul McCartney's "Band on the Run" in the battle of the multi-part '70s rock epics!
67: "School's Out" vs. "Another Brick in the Wall" (w/Maggie Mae Fish)
We don't need no education, so the school's been blown to pieces! We welcome Maggie Mae Fish into the studio to argue Alice Cooper's "School's Out" vs. Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall," the shock rock vs. prog rock showdown you've all been waiting for!
66: "Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check" vs. "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" (with Daren Jackson!)
It's a fish-eye lens showdown! We're going back to the Hype Williams era of hip-hop to argue which is the best debut single by the great wild rappers of the '90s? Is it "Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check" by Busta Rhymes or "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" by Missy Elliott?
65: "Stairway to Heaven" vs. "Free Bird" (w/Andrew Unterberger!)
It's the big one. The episode this show was invented for, the two towering titans of classic rock, the most requested song on the radio of all time vs. the most requested song live of all time. Will Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" reign as the greatest guitar-solo-heavy epic of all time or will it be denied by "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin?
Great to binge, great user interaction.
The best Toddcast.
So Much Fun
This podcast is excellent. It's rapid-fire, crammed full of interesting trivia and yet still Dany and Todd are both very affable in their delivery. Funny, entertaining and interesting.
Treat for pop music history enthusiasts
I’ve been spending the last week binging on this, as someone who has watched every Todd in the Shadows episode on YouTube.
The chemistry between the presenters is fantastic and many of the songs talked about are ones many listeners will have strong feelings on and I think that they are discussed excellently.
Nice one guys!
