Can't seem to find a thread so why not create.

There are a world of Beatles podcasts out there and one I found but haven't heard yet is 'The Beatles Multi-Track Meltdown' which 

"..features stripped down, deconstructed mixes of classic Beatles songs, live cuts, solo material, demos, and much more. By highlighting different instruments and vocals you will experience these songs in a way that you've never imagined. Imagine sitting in the control room of EMI studios, and countless others, and having the opportunity to peel away the layers of a song, discovering new elements you never knew existed. This is the closest you can get to that experience. So sit back, tune in, and enjoy the Beatles Multi-Track Meltdown. 

It's available on Soundcloud and on iTunes.

The 'Fab4Free4All' is well worth listening to as is 'Something About The Beatles' (even if it does have one of the worst opening songs i've ever heard).

A special notice should be made for 'The Beatles Anthology Revisited', an incredible audio retrospective of the Beatles from 1940 to the 2010's, told by the Beatles and others close to them along with thru music. It was first made available in 2016 however it's been revisited and revised for 2017. No website exists so you'll have to search for it.

Anyone have anyone others?

I regularly listen to 'Fab4Free4All' and 'Something About The Beatles'. Out of the two I think SATB is better and they have some really in depth knowledge and analysis. But you are right about the intro which I dislike.  'The Beatles Multi-Track Meltdown' sounds interesting so I'll have to have a listen. "Things We Said Today" is quite good.

Also I posted this elsewhere but this is a really excellent episode of a podcast called Fabcast. I don't know who the host are but they have a lot insider info and personal recollections about John and Paul and one of them recalls how he was there when John recorded his famous "Goodbye from the Record Plant". Some of the highlights include info on Paul's not so smooth relationship with Elvis Costello, how Mark Lewisohn fell out with George and some squabbling in Paul's solo band. I haven't listened to any other episodes though.

I regularly listen to Fab 4 Free 4 All, Something About The Beatles and the Multitrack Meltdown. 

One other one worth checking out is When They Was Fab.

I've found Something About the Beatles to be the best overall. And if you're try to train yourself to love solo Paul, try AllMcCartney.

It's a shame Richard and Robert broke up.  SATB just isn't the same, even with Clapton.
