Episode 1 has been a long time coming. Part of it was first recorded before the Grammys and the second half was recorded a couple of weeks after. It was my intention to get the first part out before the Grammys, of course best laid plans.
It became a painstaking process to get this done for many reasons but here it finally is. I almost split it into 2 episodes because it runs 56 minutes but that would have just slowed the process down more.
It starts in a great place where we both agree on a remake of one of the biggest songs of last year, and as is typical, there is a perfect unintended connection when Jeff brings in some music. Grammy predictions follow and then Grammy follow up.
Once we get out of Grammy mode, I bring up Hanson because of a connection to the previously released episode from Castlist 003, Tonight You're #1 Episode 9. This ends up bringing us back to the Grammy telecast, musical theater, Billie Eilish and another coincidence, so in the end a full circle episode.
