Episode notes

Adam talks with British musician Paul McCartney about, among other things, his favourite snacks and British TV panel shows, what Bob Dylan is really like, whether the modern world is scarier than the 60s, how he and John Lennon really got on after the Beatles broke up, and why he no longer picks up hitch hikers. Recorded remotely on November 18th, 2020. Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support and to Matt Lamont for conversation editing.  Podcast artwork by Helen Green McCARTNEY MUSIC MONTAGE Hey Jude - The Beatles (single, 1968) I Don't Know - Paul McCartney (Egypt Station, 2018) Yesterday - The Beatles (Help!, 1965) Live and Let Die - Wings (single, 1973) Waterfalls - Paul McCartney (McCartney II, 1980) Helter Skelter - The Beatles (The Beatles, aka The White Album, 1968) Fine Line - Paul McCartney (Chaos and Creation in the Backyard, 2005) Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney (McCartney I, 1970) Paperback Writer - The Beatles (single, 1966) Getting Better - The Beatles (Sgt.
