Screw It, We're Just Gonna Talk About the Beatles

Friends from the Los Angeles comedy scene discuss the Beatles, one album at a time. We have no special qualifications nor reason to do this. And we often get facts wrong or leave them out. We just want to because we're obsessed with the Beatles, like any rational human. TOPICS INCLUDE: Reasons we love them! Stories we've read! Opinions we hold! Excitement we cannot contain! THE BEATLES!

We talk about the Beatles longtime producer George Martin. He's one of the most common nominees for the informal title of "Fifth Beatle" for his contributions to their sound.

Whether it was through knowing when to take the role of teacher vs. letting them make the decisions, or being able to turn John Lennon's abstract wishes into concrete instrumentation, or even in the early days broadly helping to direct their songwriting -- George Martin was crucial in helping the Beatles become THE BEATLES.

Along the way we have some fun distractions including checking out isolated tracks from Sgt. Pepper and also Peter Serafinowicz' track "A Full Day In The Life." And somehow Heather keeps imitating Eddie Vedder.

Panelists: Suzi Barrett, Will Hines, Connor Ratliff, Joel Spence, Heather Woodward.

Friend of the Podcast Wayland McQueen is back with more hypothetical Beatles questions:

  • What is your favorite song where Ringo sings lead?
  • What is your favorite closing track on an album that doesn't have the word "Albert" in the lyrics?
  • What is your favorite Beatles song that none of the Beatles wrote?
  • You can switch vocals to another Beatle on any song. Which song and who do you switch it to?

Panelists: Scott Aukerman, Will Hines, Wayland McQueen, Katie Plattner, Charlie Sanders
