Taking It Down kicks off in high gear with Listener of the Week (2:44) then some quick and spoiler-free thoughts on why everyone loves Top Gun: Maverick (4:31). From there, the gang dissects if episodes three and four of Stranger Things 4 improve upon the first two (7:45).
After some news during the break, everyone is all in on the new Wilco album Cruel Country, but why (23:47)? The group also talks a little about what makes the new Drive-by Truckers’ record worth your time (23:47).
In a hilarious bit, Donovan can’t help but nitpick about the third episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi (31:53) before the podcast winds down with some explanations on why the HBO show We Own This City is one of the best and most vital of the year (36:17).
