‘Paul Or Nothing’ Podcast

The place to get all your Paul, all of the time.

Off the Ground, Part 1/2: Paul or Nothing Episode #22.

October 23rd, 2021

Right my mistresses and maids, it's been a long time coming but once again it is time for us to have a proper album discussion on the pod! This time we will be accompanying Paul on his first foray into the dreaded 1990's with his follow-up to the highly lauded Flowers in the Dirt...this is Off the Ground!!!

Another much maligned album and just like Pipes of Peace and Press to Play, hopefully I will be able to change some negative opinions out there, on what is (in my opinion) and a more consistent album than its predecessor. 

C'mon people, there is still hope...

Please enjoy. Peace and love,

Punnit or Nothing, with The Blotto Beatles - Paul or Nothing Bonus Episode #76.

September 13th, 2021

Hello everyone, and welcome to the first (and probably only) episode of Punnit or Nothing!

Basically, I was a part of a sadly-now-defunct podcast called Punnit (go check it out). The format of the show is taking two abstract concepts, smash them together and make some puns. Hopefully, it is all as simple as it sounds. But don't worry, I'll explain later.

Of course, I am blessed to be joined by the entire gang from the spectacular Blotto Beatles podcast. You know em', you love em' and I have them all to myself...and on my turf...

This was very impromptu episode, and you are all spared the usual housekeeping and intro. And yes, this was thrown together because the Off the Ground episode is taking forever.

Peace & love. Hare Hare Krishna.

Remember when America was seemingly becoming cooler, and the world didn't seem like it was about to totally collapse? No? Well, if not, come and relive some of the good years as McCartney, his friends, his peers and the entire Democratic intelligentsia gather together to award Paul what Jerry Seinfeld would call "Duh!".

At a time where I really should be using my time much more wisely, I instead ended up getting my notes wrong for this episode. What follows is a casual conversation with Jonathan and Julia from the Ranking the Beatles podcast.
