It’s January 1969 and The Beatles are commercially at their peak with a number one Album in the charts and the summers smash hit ‘Hey Jude.’ Professionally things couldn’t be worse, however. Paul has convinced them to rehearse for a live show before the cameras, but his band mates have misgivings which will only multiply as the days progress. This is ‘The Winter of Discontent’. And we’re going to listen in to what will transpire.

Winter of Discontent Ep.10 - A Beatles Podcast
It’s January 3rd 1969; the second day of filming. It’s a good opportunity to spend some quality time with Paul and Ringo at the Piano.
Brilliant; mesmerizing deep dive
It’s all brilliant. Can’t wait for more: the first 8 were mesmerizing. It’s a well researched deep dive. How can an hour by hour analysis of a studio session work? This way. Hoping to hear more before Peter Jackson’s film in August
Great details and host is terrific
Awesome show for any hardcore Beatles fan, maybe the best
