    A Bright New Voice on SiriusXM’s Beatles Channel, feat. Host Caitlin Larkin

    We welcome back one of our favorite Beatle People, Caitlin Larkin, now the newest host on SiriusXM's Beatles Channel. Caitlin tells us about the innovative TikTok campaign she staged that got the attention of SiriusXM and helped her land a top role in the Beatles broadcasting world. We talk growing up as a second generation Beatles kid, the world of online trolls, and the many ways the Beatles community is growing into more of a family every day.

    Plus, Allison and Erika compare their ranked list of Beatles songs with each other and with the recent SiriusXM Top 100. And we try to solve a pressing mystery: did Paul McCartney welcome a new dog to his family??

    BONUS: Interview with Paul McCartney’s Russian Tutor, Aliona Muchinskaya

    BONUS: Interview with Paul McCartney’s Russian Tutor, Aliona Muchinskaya

    In this special bonus episode, we return to Russia with Paul along with the incredible Aliona Muchinskaya. Aliona is a Russian-born journalist and event creator who served as Paul’s Russian tutor, translator, assistant, and “chaperone” during his time in Moscow in 2003. She tells Allison about her first meeting with Paul, his prep for the 2003 Red Square concert, and his meetings with Putin and Gorbachev. A fascinating perspective on a singular event in Paul's career!

    In case you missed it, go back and listen to our last episode, "CHOBA B CCCP: When Paul Met Putin," for more context on Aliona and on Paul's Russia concerts.

    CHOBA B CCCP: When Paul Met Putin

    CHOBA B CCCP: When Paul Met Putin

    As the Russia/Ukraine conflict continues to rage, we took a look back at the time Paul McCartney brought the Beatles' music to Russia on a groundbreaking gesture of musical goodwill—his 2003 concert in Red Square and accompanying documentary. We indulge in early aughts nostalgia, look back on the astounding meeting between Paul, Heather, and Putin(!!!), and reveal Paul's most pressing question about Russian culture.

    Plus, we find our favorite Beatles song with the epic Beatles Song Battles site, speculate about our future Paul concerts, and look ahead to a most interesting collaboration between a weed company and the George Harrison estate (+gnomes).

    BC The Beatles GOT BACK! + Paul Live!

    BC The Beatles GOT BACK! + Paul Live!

    Just like Paul, we’ve GOT BACK! We’re talking all things Paul on tour, including Allison’s rundown of both Oakland shows, setlist spoilers, some off-the-cuff onstage shade from Paul himself, and one person who is glaringly absent this go-round. Plus, we remember Michael Nesmith, who passed away last December while we were on hiatus.

    To avoid GOT BACK spoilers, skip to 48:15 after our intro.

    Peter Jackson‘s ‘Get Back:‘ F**k Yeah!

    We break down our first impressions of the three-part "Get Back" epic (spoiler: we loved it). Plus, remembering George 20 years on, and a little obsessing over replica Beatle clothing and the latest Brian Epstein statue news.

Definite potential

Enthusiastic hosts and interesting topics. Unfortunately, the audio quality is dismal. Just listened to a live show and found it unlistenable.

So much to love

The female voice has been missing in Beatles podcasts and now it is here! Allison and Erica are fun and have great conversations. Be the Beatles is my new favorite!

Love this podcast!

It’s a very fun and interesting podcast, it makes me feel like I’m in the conversation. I like how the conversation is a lot more casual than some other podcasts, in which I feel like I’m being lectured. I also enjoy the book refs they give out. It’s nice to have content from people who are just as obsessed with the Beatles as I am.
