No Agenda is a great show, but it's biggest downside is the fact that so many of the stories discussed are long and ongoing, making it hard for a first-time listener to jump in. That's why Adam and John did episode 200.5. It was meant to be an introduction to how the show works and all the little peculiarities.
This is my first attempt at writing my thoughts while doing a play-through of an album. Colors by House of Heroes easily sits in my top 10 favourite albums (though I still need to write that listicle).
Leading up to the album coming out, they posted these clips on social media, and they help make the narrative more obvious.
