Episode 147: Thank You for Sharing

This week, we're bringing you something a little different. Two longtime listeners, Jason and Mike, join us to talk about an important topic—their experiences with addiction and recovery, and their experiences in the Phish community. We also play some music.

You may have read the GQ article that came out yesterday, which featured Trey and a bunch of other musicians talking about how to thrive creatively without drinking or doing drugs. Also mentioned in this episode are The Phellowship and Trey's drug court speech from 2011.

And here's the link to the Phish.Net article about the new Amy's Farm video. Support Mockingbird if you can!

Thanks for listening, and please give us a review on Apple Podcasts if you haven't yet! See you next time.
