It was a huge honor to be invited onto National Review's new music podcast "Political Beats" this week to discuss the career and legacy of Hall and Oates. If, like me, you have been earnestly seeking that sweet spot where Smokey Robinson, Aleister Crowley, Robert Fripp, George Harrison, doo-wop, and Philadelphia soul overlap; if you have been pondering the meaning of the "Las Vegas turnaround" or the relation of "Maneater" to 1980s corporate greed; if you have been wondering who "Sara" might be; look no further my friend! Come for the mustache, stay for the guided tour through one of the most impressive pop songbooks of the 20th century. Listen here.
