All McCartney, Ep. 21: Musical Gems of the 1980s
From a listener's request, we discuss some of the musical highlights from the decade which many believe to have been McCartney's most problematic. On a professional level, Paul McCartney's career reached a difficult point in the 1980s. Possible explanations could be that he was trying too hard to be commercially successful, or that he was trying to hard to remain relevant as he entered into middle-age, or that he was shellshocked by the death of John Lennon. Nevertheless, the 1980s weren't entirely bad, and in this episode we discuss his "hidden" musical gems from that decade, in particular deep album cuts and lesser-known unreleased songs that aren't generally considered amongst the canon of McCartney's compositions. The songs we will discuss include "Footprints," "Distractions," and "Yvonne," among many others.
All McCartney, Ep. 20: Paul's Most Controversial Songs
If you enjoy politics and profanity mixed in with your sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll, then this is the episode for you! We discuss the songs that have caused Paul to get into varying degrees of trouble over the course of his career, whether they be songs that have been widely criticized by fans and critics, songs that have caused legal troubles, or songs that had been banned from various media outlets. McCartney's most controversial songs include "Helter Skelter," "Hi Hi Hi," "Big Boys Bickering," and many others.

The best Macca podcast out there!
Love listening to this podcast because the hosts aren't just fans, they're musicians that explain how Macca plays and writes music. They explain what makes Macca's music so amazing instead of just talking about fandom. Not a big fan of Macca's recent albums, but after listening to the 21st century episode I need to check out those albums!
