Great story - keep it up

So season one was fantastic - the Lennon/McCartney dynamic duo was presented as both war and peace. Knowing a bit already - this story helps fill in more gaps which continued to form the glue to what I had already known. Sadly season 1 was taken down - let us know why...is there a dispute or issues with the content? Now listening to season two...(or will season one vanish forever and have the Shaq/Kobe season take over as season 1?). All in all great story telling - with the voice overs and soundtracks added in - it creates a story like an old time radio production. The podcast has taken over the radio in my car and I wait for the next episode to come out. [**bring back season 1! Or, re-edit it so you can...**]

EDIT 4/14/19: thank you for the update about Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Exactly what I was looking for and was thinking too. It was taken down due to a request over a question on music rights. My hope is that the dispute can find a remedy and we can have those episodes reloaded back up. It was an excellent start to the series. I’m not a religious viewer of basketball, but the Kobe/Shaq relationship was excellent! Looking forward to Frida! Keep up the great work!

Don’t 1-star it over a legal issue...

The first season was great.
They had to pull it over music licensing, which is unfortunate, but it was well put together and engaging storytelling. They did the work, and the work was good. I don’t think the mistake deserves 1-star reviews, and outrage. The negative reviews over this (especially if you hadn’t heard it) seem a bit entitled.
Having said that, the second season was also great. I’m not a basketball fan, and couldn’t have cared less about Kobe, Shaq, or what happened between them. By the end of the season, I was rooting for them, and wanted to know how it ended.
Again, great storytelling.
Wondery makes high-quality shows with outstanding production, and this is no exception.

Bait and Switch?

I subscribed to hear about John and Paul and then those episodes disappear. Big waste of time!
