Justin Cox and Ryan Page look at 1972, when the Rolling Stones drop Exile on Main Street and John Lennon and Yoko Ono release Sometime in New York City. The first 20 mins are heavy on the Lennon album. Don't let it scare you away! Everything after that is Exile! Ryan reps The Stones and Justin reps Lennon/Ono.

Beatles: Sometime in New York City + Happy Xmas, War is Over

At the 22:30 mark, we're joined by music and science writer Rob Mitchum, who’s written for tons of publications including the Chicago Tribune and Pitchfork, where he gave Exile a perfect 10 when it was reissued. Justin and Ryan pick back up around 35:30.
