EP. 96 — U Springin’ Springsteen On My Bean? – High Hopes

Scott and Scott go track by track through Springo’s eighteenth studio album, High Hopes (as well as the following American Beauty EP), a collection of older songs, cover songs and outtakes that Da Boss still considers one of his proper records. They learn how the Netflix show Lilyhammer directly led to High Hopes and craft their own ultimate editions of the album. Plus: elementary school square dances, and the eternal question, “What is it?”
