250. The Beatles 'Help!' with guest host Jeff Greenstein and Jeremy Dylan, plus the untold history of My Favorite Album

To celebrate 250 episodes of My Favorite Album, Emmy-winning writer/director and friend of the pod Jeff Greenstein steps into the host chair and Jeremy Dylan slouches into the guest chair, for a deep dive into one of the Beatles best but most underrated albums, 'Help!' We talk about how this captures the Beatles in a transitionary period, how they are starting to break out of the mop top era into more sophisticated and diverse musical and lyrical adventures.  Plus Jeff and Jeremy open up about the how and why of My Favorite Album's existence, dream guests, the best episodes for newcomers to start with and more. Thanks to everyone who's been with us for the past five years, or even just for one episode, and hopefully we'll be here for another 250 episodes and more. My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it's influenced them. Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist, concert promoter and photographer. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins.
