I adore your podcast!!! Right now I’m listening to “If I ran away from you – Episode 1 Part 2” and I love with your interpretation of Hey Jude and of how Paul’s new relationship with Linda fits in the song! I never thought of that and it really makes sense!

Our Tumblr asks

Thank you so much! 🙂 “Hey Jude” is a complicated song chock-full of layers.  I love Phoebe and Diana’s analysis of it as well!  Paul had so much going on in his life during that time and I love that they could see that “Hey Jude” is an amalgamation of everything he was facing!

The john calling paul god part of your latest episode (thank you btw!!) reminded me of a quote I wondered if you’ve seen. “Cynthia Lennon is a goddess, you know. Paul is a god. Aren’t I lucky to have such a religion?” Supposedly from ~66 I think but I can’t find the source.

Our Tumblr asks

Hello there, and thank you for the feedback! 🙂 

All of us have seen this quote floating around unattributed, but haven’t ever been able to find the original source, so we are fairly suspect about it.  There have been a number of manufactured Beatles quotes making the rounds for years so this could very well be one of them. If anyone out there in Internet-land has the original quote and source, it could be helpful in solving this riddle. 🙂 But we have all tried to find it to no avail.

Thanks for listening to us and we hope you continue to enjoy! 🙂

This podcast is absolutely wonderful and everything the Beatles fandom need! Good, in depth research; love, respect & compassion for the very real people you’re talking about; a kind but firm way to address the issues the common narrative tends to sweep under the rug; a gentle challenge to this “received narrative”; a sense of humor that made me laugh out loud (I’m definitely keeping “jean jackets” for my own use, if you don’t mind). Thank you for this beautiful work and please keep it coming!

Episode suggestion: analyzing Beatles authors through the years and their biases, narratives, limitations- Including some overdue Lewisohn discourse 🙂 kind of like the work of Erin Weber at the Historian and the Beatles. Keep up the great work! Thank you for what you do.

I absolutely adore your podcast! I’ve listened to all the episodes a couple times now and am so stoked for your next installment (It’s a huge relief to finally hear female voices on these topics). I was wondering if you guys could recommend any solid, unbiased reading material? Also, I was very curious about future Beatle topics you might cover? I intend to be a long, long-term fan. 😉 Thanks for all your hard work, it’s definitely not gone unnoticed.

Hello, and thank you so much for listening to us! 🙂  We are really glad you’re enjoying it!  We’ve been thinking about doing a fun episode about all of our “Beatles Recs” – books, media, and all manner of “Beatles stuff” that we like!  In the mean time, here’s a short list of some of the books we like:

– Paul McCartney: Many Years from Now by Barry Miles

–  McCartney: The Definitive Biography by Chris Salewicz

– Loving John by May Pang

– John by Cynthia Lennon

– The Beatles by Hunter Davies

– Summer of Love by George Martin

– Here, There and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles by Geoff Emerick

– Miss O’Dell by Chris O’Dell 

– Wonderful Tonight by Pattie Boyd 

Since this also counts as reading material, I would also strongly recommend every fan read Maureen Cleave’s pieces in the Evening Standard on each Beatle.  She did excellent work profiling each of the guys – it’s a wonderful, contemporaneous source, and great fun to read! 

The @truthaboutthebeatlesgirls Tumblr has all the articles! 🙂 

John  Paul  George  Ringo

In terms of future topics, we of course have the “If I Ran Away from You” series about the Lennon-McCartney and Beatles breakup which Diana and Phoebe are hard at work on!  And there are many more topics in the pipeline; it seems with the Beatles we can never run out of things to talk about!  We are reluctant to tease too much as we like to surprise people with topics, but we promise to keep the episodes interesting and full of fun and freshness! 🙂 

Thank you so much again for listening to us!  We love listener feedback! 🙂 Stay tuned, there are so many good things coming!

Hi! Love love love what you guys are doing and no pressure, but just wondering on an ETA for the next episode? Thank you so much!

Our Tumblr asks

Hello! 🙂 We’re so happy you’re loving our podcast!  

We love it too, so we are taking great care to make sure the next episode is amazing and of a high quality.  Researching, recording, and then editing our conversations into something cohesive and enjoyable to listen to do take a lot of time and care.  We hope to have our next episode out early this coming week!  

Stay tuned, it’s gonna be a BIG one! 🙂

Thank you so much for this podcast. Someone had to do it (!!!) but I’m glad you’re doing such an excellent job of it. I might be your biggest fan, I was so hungry for this specific content that I’ve listened to some of the episodes 3-4 times already. But I’m probably not the only one and I’m sure you’re making something that will last and be important to a lot of people. Thanks again – I hope it’s fun to make – I look forward to every next episode!

It does indeed take a lot of time and effort to make this podcast, but we have a great time doing it!

Thanks for listening to us, and we hope you keep enjoying us for a long time to come!
