Glass Onion: On John Lennon

Welcome to 'Glass Onion: On John Lennon', a podcast deep dive into the music and complex psychology of an icon who lived many lifetimes within his 40 years. The show also looks a contextual look at the time in which he lived and includes discussions with people who knew him and many who have written about him.

The completion of Luke and Antony's discussion of John Lennon, originally recorded for ‘Luke’s English Podcast’ last year. We complete our description of John using adjectives of personality, and then discuss his lyrics, including his lyrical progression, and offer numerous examples courtesy of Antony’s voice and guitar and Luke’s deep knowledge of Beatles songs. This and the previous episode are especially recommended for students of English and non-native speakers but we hope these edits make them accessible to all.
