"The first two records had a sort of cinema sound, a cinematic Panavision feel, the broad, big sound we wanted for U2. Now that we've done the cinema sound, I'd like to make it a bit rougher." — Bono

The big news this week, of course, is the launch of U2’s Sirius XM station. Collin, Sherry, Ian and Mason discuss whether it’s worth the price of subscription, what it’s like to have U2 on speeddial and whether or not the band will go beyond the surface of things in their catalog for content. This brings up the next discussion, a deep dive into one of U2’s deepest album cuts, FEZ - Being Born.

Walk On was once one of U2’s most beloved anthems of hope, courage and activism. In recent years, the band has had to distance themselves from the song’s inspiration, Aung San Suu Kyi, and haven’t played it since. Inspired by Ian Ryan’s recent Like A Song article, Ian, Amy, Becky and Collin talk about what the song means to them and how it can be re-purposed so it can be enjoyed again.
