Show Notes

This episode marks the beginning of OSD's examination of the period after Lennon's divorce declaration.  Diana is joined by Dr. Duncan Driver to analyze the meaning of the song Instant Karma. Could there be more to the song than a surface-level reading? Could it provide more insight into the breakup period?  Diana and Duncan make the case that it does.

The two guys as friends, there was never a time when they wouldn’t have fought for the other guy, so, you know, they wrote songs about it, you know John would just write Instant Karma and Paul would write a song back at him. And that’s how they fought. Writing songs at each other.” — Alice Cooper
