From McCartney: A Life in Lyrics — Eleanor Rigby

19m · Published 04 Oct 04:00

Here’s a preview from a podcast from iHeart Media, MPL and Pushkin Industries, McCartney: A Life in Lyrics.

Face cream, a Bristol liquor business, and a lifelong reverence for the elderly are just a few of the rather ordinary and disparate inspirations Paul McCartney brought together in the creation of a masterpiece: “Eleanor Rigby.” In this episode, McCartney and Paul Muldoon tease out the song's lyrical inspirations and discuss the influence a Bernard Herrman score for a Hitchcock film had on the lead single from 1966’s “Revolver."

Hear McCartney: A Life in Lyrics every Wednesday, available wherever you get your podcasts.

(The series was produced by Pejk Malinovski and Sara McCrea; edited by Dan O’Donnell and Sophie Crane; mastered by Jason Gambrell with sound design by Pejk Malinovski. And executive produced by Leital Molad, Justin Richmond, Lee Eastman and Scott Rodger.

Thanks to Lee Eastman, Richard Ewbank, Scott Rodger, Aoife Corbett and Steve Ithell.)

Here's a preview of a new podcast from Pushkin Industries, Story of the Week with journalist Joel Stein. On Story of the Week, Joel chooses an article that fascinates him, convinces the writer to tell him about it, and then interrupts a good conversation by talking about himself. Sometimes the story will be the one everyone is talking about, like the New Yorker article on smoking hallucinogenic toads. Other times we’ll find a story you might have missed, like the one in the Verge about the rock groupie turned hacker who had huge corporations at her mercy. These are stories you’ll tell your friends about. Stories that stick with you long after you forget whatever headline you just doom-scrolled through.
