Will Franken attempts to explain himself via the Beatles

Ever wonder what’s really going on inside a comedian’s head? Will Franken often lets those inner voices out to play, and in "Side Two of Abbey Road", he tells his life story and his comedy story by wrapping it in and around the Beatles tunes from the final side of their final album. Franken himself says it best near the end of his 12th and final podcast in his series: "Oh, c’mon. This is too many layers. They’re never going to get this!" If you listen to the whole thing, though, or if you’ve seen Franken live before, perhaps it’ll make a lot more sense. Oh, and it’s got some NSFW language and content. Just so you know.
