Taking It Down 97: A Texas Monkey, Music from Springsteen and Oasis, Joe Pera’s Return, and The Great on Hulu

It's Taking It Down, the pop culture podcast from The Alabama Take!

You don’t want to miss this one: come for the monkey story, stay for the pop culture riffs.

This week on the Taking It Down podcast, Adam recounts his days as a minister, or at least as an officiant of a wedding or two (1:31). Then it’s on to a discussion about the weekend of college football, but things get insane and funny when the weeks-old story of the Texas monkey who had a brief layover in and around the University of Alabama rears its head again (3:38). If you haven’t heard that one, don’t miss Adam’s telling of it.

The weekend was a good one, though, if you like music: we discuss the live music from Oasis and Bruce Springsteen as well as the tease of more from U2 (15:32).

Returning to Adult Swim is the wonderful show Joe Pera Talks With You, which we adore and explain why no one should miss out (27:34). Also returning, Hulu’s hilarious take on Catherine the Great of Russia — simply titled The Great — is back and just as funny (34:16). We decide that it could be even better than before. All that, and not to mention some excitement on the horizon (44:33)!

Taking It Down is sneaking up on its 100th show. For it, we’ll take as many listener questions as possible about TV, movies, music, books, and well beyond! Get those to us in any social media account or simply email TheAlabamaTake@gmail.com.

We hope all of our listeners visit the online shop and grab a t-shirt, coffee mug, or something else for the upcoming holidays! It’s one way to let everyone know you love Taking It Down and The Alabama Take!

Subscribe, rate, review, and share the show with others! Next Tuesday, Taking It Down will be back with more from movies, television, music, or books!
