What makes a great live album? Are live albums really “great?” And why are the Counting Crows one of the most divisive live bands ever? The Unplugged phenomenon and what happened to it. We also lay out some of most and least favorite live albums of all time.

Why do we love arguing about greatness and listing it? We need a better term than “argument” for what we need to do. Our backgrounds and where we came from. What we want to do with this podcast.
