Episode 101: Chris Pandolfi interview

This week we're excited to be talking with Chris Pandolfi of the Infamous Stringdusters. They just released an excellent album, Laws of Gravity, and they're on tour!

Here are the dates, but over the next week they'll be in the Bay Area, Southern California, Vegas, and Colorado. In the next couple of months they'll be all over the Midwest and back on the West Coast. It's a great concert experience. 

You may not be surprised to find out that we also talk about Phish. Chris is a huge fan and talks about playing with Page and Fishman (and Phil Lesh and others). Fun conversation, and we play a little bit of a show that Chris and I saw together, which really brought him back into the Phish orbit in 2014.

Episode 100: We made it.

Thanks for tuning in this week! We made it to episode 100, so we decided to take this time to reflect back on the first 99 episodes and talk about some notable conversations, the lessons we've learned, and how much this podcast means to all 3 of us.

We also want to reiterate how thankful we are to all of our listeners for your support, ideas, feedback and enthusiasm. We'll keep going as long as you keep listening.

Of course, we also play some music. We each chose a track that we wanted to keep revisiting and share it with you (Brad, being Brad, chose 2. He's a lawyer, so we can't argue with him.)

Episode 99: Daniel Pinchbeck Interview


This week's guest is Daniel Pinchbeck, the author of How Soon Is Now?, which comes out on February 20. It's a fascinating and timely book that talks about how we can collectively get out of the ecological and environmental disasters we've gotten ourselves into. You can read more about Daniel here.

This is a bit of a departure from our typical subject matter, but the overlap of consciousness, psychedelics, music and culture seemed appropriate to probe into, especially at this inflection point in American history. Really thought provoking conversation. You can listen to the episode directly here.

Of course, there is some music. Went back to the archive for some early Phish, which we think was probably influenced by psychedelics. Enjoy!
