Episode 52 - Guest Pick: Tyler Curtis - Phish 1.1.11

This week we're excited to be joined by Tyler Curtis, who we've been looking forward to chatting with for a while now! We talked with him about 1.1.11, a "last of the New Year's run" show, which has a fantastic high-energy first set. The second set is one of those gems that flows and brings better and better jams as it develops. Great one to revisit.

This week we're going to release our intro conversation and Set 1 of 1.1.11, and release Set 2 and that discussion next week. Another attempt to mix things up and make things better.

Please continue to send us feedback about this experiment and let us know what you think.

Episode 51: Guest Pick - Steven Hyden - 10.31.96

This week we're excited to be joined by Steven Hyden, a music journalist for Grantland and a self-described Phish "noob." We chatted about 10.31.96, the Halloween show that of course included the cover of Remain in Light, by the Talking Heads. Here's an article that Steven wrote about Phish for Grantland, which is a great read.

We got a lot of good feedback on the new format last week, and so we're going to continue to just include the guest conversation, and point you to PhishTracksPhish On Demand App or Live Phish to listen to the epic Halloween album from 10.31.96.

Please continue to send us feedback about this experiment and let us know what you think.
