A Bright New Voice on SiriusXM’s Beatles Channel, feat. Host Caitlin Larkin

We welcome back one of our favorite Beatle People, Caitlin Larkin, now the newest host on SiriusXM's Beatles Channel. Caitlin tells us about the innovative TikTok campaign she staged that got the attention of SiriusXM and helped her land a top role in the Beatles broadcasting world. We talk growing up as a second generation Beatles kid, the world of online trolls, and the many ways the Beatles community is growing into more of a family every day.

Plus, Allison and Erika compare their ranked list of Beatles songs with each other and with the recent SiriusXM Top 100. And we try to solve a pressing mystery: did Paul McCartney welcome a new dog to his family??

BONUS: Interview with Paul McCartney’s Russian Tutor, Aliona Muchinskaya

In this special bonus episode, we return to Russia with Paul along with the incredible Aliona Muchinskaya. Aliona is a Russian-born journalist and event creator who served as Paul’s Russian tutor, translator, assistant, and “chaperone” during his time in Moscow in 2003. She tells Allison about her first meeting with Paul, his prep for the 2003 Red Square concert, and his meetings with Putin and Gorbachev. A fascinating perspective on a singular event in Paul's career!

In case you missed it, go back and listen to our last episode, "CHOBA B CCCP: When Paul Met Putin," for more context on Aliona and on Paul's Russia concerts.

CHOBA B CCCP: When Paul Met Putin

As the Russia/Ukraine conflict continues to rage, we took a look back at the time Paul McCartney brought the Beatles' music to Russia on a groundbreaking gesture of musical goodwill—his 2003 concert in Red Square and accompanying documentary. We indulge in early aughts nostalgia, look back on the astounding meeting between Paul, Heather, and Putin(!!!), and reveal Paul's most pressing question about Russian culture.

Plus, we find our favorite Beatles song with the epic Beatles Song Battles site, speculate about our future Paul concerts, and look ahead to a most interesting collaboration between a weed company and the George Harrison estate (+gnomes).

BC The Beatles GOT BACK! + Paul Live!

Just like Paul, we’ve GOT BACK! We’re talking all things Paul on tour, including Allison’s rundown of both Oakland shows, setlist spoilers, some off-the-cuff onstage shade from Paul himself, and one person who is glaringly absent this go-round. Plus, we remember Michael Nesmith, who passed away last December while we were on hiatus.

To avoid GOT BACK spoilers, skip to 48:15 after our intro.

Talkin’ About “Freedom” (and Paul’s Concert for New York City)

Last month marked 20 years since 9/11, and while observing the day itself is pretty grim, we couldn’t let the anniversary pass without talking about how Paul channeled that horrible event into some pretty massive (and divisive) musical moments.
