Exploring the Music and Fan Experience of Phish

Since 2013, we’ve aimed to bring the fan voice into discussions about Phish, and with the help of our guests, we’re still discovering new angles of appreciation for the band. And when the band is on tour, we provide a review of every show the following day with a fan who was there. As one of our listeners said, “this show has impeccable analysis, stats, commentary and music.” Join us!
