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!

In this multi-part series, Diana and Phoebe explore the emotional roots of the Beatles break-up with a focus on Lennon/McCartney. They use John’s and Paul’s contemporaneous words and behaviors to challenge the traditional narrative and show how this delicate negotiation for love and security went disastrously awry. In the first installment, they begin their re-examination by tracing the Big Bang of the break-up to 1968.
Part 1 of Episode 1 focuses on the first half of the year; part 2 on the second.
“There is no shortage of sources for information about The Beatles. The most popular music group in history has had thousands of books, articles, documentaries—thousands upon thousands of words written or spoken—etc, all produced about them. And now nearly 60 years since they first came together onstage as The Beatles, especially in the post-Beatles Anthology years, it would seem as though nothing more needs to be said. But as younger fans take up the mantle of musicological scholarship about the Fab Four from the hands of the Baby Boomers who first knew and revered and wrote hagiographies about them, an interesting thing has begun to happen.
This is where Another Kind of Mind: A Fresh Look at The Beatles, a new Beatles podcast, steps in. Fronted by a group of passionate young women (somewhere around the Gen-X/Millennial age boundary) AKOM enters the ring determined to wade through the bullshit of Beatles discourse to try to get to the heart of some of the issues surrounding the fandom.
They’re only a month old, but so far they’ve tackled Ringo Starr’s musical style and contributions to the band, George Harrison’s involvement in “How Do You Sleep?”, John Lennon’s song-attack on Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono’s artistic output (both as a competent and interesting solo artist and as John‘s final creative partner), and the intense Lennon/McCartney relationship. Not bad for a brand-new podcast!”
Welcome to our introductory episode, where we will walk you through who we are, why we wanted to do a podcast, and how we will approach the topics we plan to tackle in the future. Thanks for joining us! “We hope you will enjoy the show!”
We are on: Podbean, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Player.FM, and more!
