In Episode 033, we deep-dive into the history of one of our favorite bands, U2. To do so, we brought on one of our close friends, and U2-expert, Ryan Nichols (@ryannichols7) to help us out. Approaching the band's history chronologically, we explore how U2 grew into the biggest band in the world, shifted in one of the most extreme manners for a mainstream Rock band, and has spent much of the last 20 years trying to figure out what's next. We also consider possible ways for U2 to reclaim the status of "The World's Most Important Band."
