As 2023 began drawing to its inevitable close, our friend Jesse W. Jackson of Set Lusting Bruce: A Bruce Springsteen Podcast invited a panel of fellow Springsteen fans for an in-depth 90-minutes discussion, reviewing and analyzing the ups and downs of this year for fans of Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. On the panel with Jesse moderating: film-scholar, writer/editor, and Letters To You contributor Caroline Madden, writer Joyce Millman, and Letters To You editor/publisher Shawn Poole.

We got to touch upon pretty much every major Springsteen-related event of 2023, except for the latest Live.BruceSpringsteen.net archival-series "Christmastime surprise extra" release, which hadn't yet been announced/released when we recorded this conversation back on December 11 (though we did speculate a bit as to whether it'd happen again this year.)
Thanks, Jesse, and Happy New Year, everybody! Overall, 2023 still was another great year to be a Springsteen fan, and 2024 is looking to be even better...
