Episode 93: Interview w/Jefferson Waful

This week, we're excited to chat with Jefferson Waful, Lighting Designer for Umphrey's McGee and Producer for CID Entertainment (and a long time Phish fan).

This was a really fun conversation, chatting with Jefferson about his career, lighting, the jam band scene, and of course his Phish journey. We also talked about and included some music from one of Jefferson's favorite shows, 12.31.93. We included lots of tracks from that. Please enjoy!

Episode 92: Phish.Net Conversation

We had the privilege of interviewing Marco Walsh, Board President of The Mockingbird Foundation and a prominent member of the Phish.Net community who's given countless hours of his time over the years.

This interview gave us the chance to talk in depth about the history of the site and the Foundation, while hearing about the incredible work that all the volunteers have done for 20+ years. We of course also touch on the Phish Companion. Hey, it's the holidays! Pick one up for a friend or loved one.

Also, there's a contest! The Mockingbird Foundation donated one copy of the book as well as a really cool poster. All you have to do is share this post with your friends on Facebook and/or Twitter using #MbirdHFPod and we'll pick two random winners (one for the book and one for the poster) on Monday, December 5.

Marco also shares memories from his first show, 4.17.92 at the Warfield in San Francisco. We talk a bit about that tour and that show, and we play a few tracks from that night. A great memory for Marco and a good show to revisit. Hope you enjoy.

An Issue We Can't Overlook

Today we bring you a different kind of conversation. Over the past several weeks, there has been a lot of conversation online about harassment and abuse of women at Phish shows and in the community more broadly. We invited three ladies on to talk about this, Felicia, Shelly and Jen. This episode was informed by the work of Brian Colligan, who wrote a piece about this topic. We borrowed the episode title from his piece.

We hope this conversation sheds a bit of light on the issues and allows us to work together to make sure this kind of shit does not happen.

We'll be back with our Fall Tour recap episode later this week. In the meantime, please subscribe and review us on iTunes and follow us on Twitter. Also like us on Facebook

This week, it's just us, and we are sharing the tour opener from Summer 1999. This show is from Sandstone Amphitheater (details below), and there are a lot of gems in here.

We're trying something a little different—instead of discussing the show in detail after we play the music, we have a shorter discussion up front, and then just leave you to the music. Let us know what you think!

And here's the picture of Brad's shirt that we mentioned. It was scary.

The music starts at just about 18 minutes. You can listen to the episode directly here. And please review us on iTunes, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
