Buckle up. We’ve reached the Train Room scene in the review series of The Ties That Bind, and the thesis of the album has been laid bare. Ryan and I are here to go to the mat on picking apart every piece of this episode and album, and we hold nothing back in our candid but tasteful discussion of the issues at hand. Be forewarned that no stone is left unturned, and some listeners may be put off by my viewpoints. It’s a long but important discussion as we unpack just why The Ties That Bind is one of the most controversial series in Adventures in Odyssey.
