It's hard to imagine why such a disgusting human being would even be allowed inside the Earwolf studios. Hopefully this was recorded before they knew he was a backstabbing turncoat who abandons his fellow writers. In any case, this episode is unlistenable.

Now I have to say..
"you know what - he works hard and puts his whole heart into making some goofy funny thing that cheers someone up and nobody gets hurt. So appreciate it for what it is".
*turning into my Grandfather btw.
Now to the future:
MORE KINDLER PLEASE!

I strongly agree with this.
And I actually came to this show after listening to the new Analyze Phish. Rabin and his personal journey sounded really interesting on that, so I thought I'd give this a shot, and it was a funny, intelligent listen.
I find the ICP talk more fascinating than the Phish stuff, simply because the Phish experience (as described) is so inherently tied to drug use. Granted, there was mention of drug use in regards to juggalos, but the experience seems way more connected with disenfranchised kids who feel a need to belong to some sense of family. That is more relatable to me than a drug-fueled party, man, though I agree with Patrick LeJeune that this family vibe is tarnished by homophobic and misogynistic themes within the music.

And even more so among the fans!
But about the Phish stuff seeming less interesting, I think the biggest reason is that you can't help but compare it to Analyze Phish, which is one of the greatest things in the universe to listen to.

Sure, it's not the pithiest philosophy. And I think it could get me fired from the internet if the wrong people heard about it. But the Fogelnest Files always seems to support that pop culture worldview, this episode especially.
