A Music Discussion Podcast? Woah!

So I didn't figure myself to be a sucker for a podcast about the making of and history behind individual songs, and yet here I am giving this show a review because...it's good!

I started with their review of "Call Me Al," a song almost everyone knows for having Chevy Chase in the music video (and cause it's just...catchy). They dove into how the song came to be, the politics around the album, the history of the music video, and so much more. And they did it with joy and good humor. Every episode is like that. It's a format that really works!

If you're a music buff, you don't want to miss this show. If you just like music and are curious about the history behind some of your favorite songs, you don't want to miss it either!
