CHOBA B CCCP: When Paul Met Putin

May 23, 2022

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).
