My new favourite podcast is called No Skips. It’s my friend* Lisa and her husband going deep on some classic albums:
Music fanatic and his skip-happy wife take on the biggest albums of all time. New episodes released every week.
So far they’ve covered Radiohead‘s OK Computer, Prince‘s Purple Rain, The Beach Boys‘ Pet Sounds (which I realized I’d never consumed front-to-back either), Erykah Badu’s Baduizm (which I haven’t listened to but will now), and Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd. My favourite quote on that last one: “[Quoting herself]: ‘This is one of the best albums of all time.’ It’s like, no fucking duh Lisa.”
It’s fun and I’m learning stuff, and they’re doing like 50+ of these. If you’re into music, it’s a big recommend.
* Online friend. She lives in Texas and I do not, so we’ve never met, but have known each other online for…I dunno, 15 years?
