After a rather lengthy hiatus, Scott and Harris are back with another classic episode of Analyze Phish! If you're new to Analyze Phish, let me get you up to speed: Harris Wittels and Scott Aukerman are friends, Harris likes Phish, and Scott does not. Harris does his best to change Scott's mind, although even a drug-fueled trip to a Phish show in New York proves futile. In this long awaited episode, Scott and Harris take calls from eager Phish fans in an attempt to better persuade Scott, and special guests Nathan Rabin and Nick Thorburn join in on the fun.

Listening to Phish fans recommend tracks is like listening to wine connoisseurs try to pick each other up at tastings.

I've only made it through the first break but this is hilarious. Loved Scott asking if that guy's parents were high. And "cool story if it ends there." Good stuff. And thank you so much for keeping the music in very small pieces as I agree it is generally awful.

Everyone is wrong. The only way to get anyone to like Phish who doesnt like Phish is through studio albums. Hoist, Rift or Junta even. Love this podcast so much haha.

Out of all the Phish music played in these podcasts, the only song I can actually say I've liked and bought on iTunes has been 'Bouncing Around the Room', which apparently makes me an asshole to Phish fans, right? :D

Up to the first break - I might like this more than the live episode.

I think an interesting take for a future episode could be Scott trying to get Harris into actual good music, based on the qualities that he seems to like about Phish. For example, Scott likes Yo La Tengo (or at least had them on CBB), and they tend to jam out sometimes and aren't complete garbage. It might be boring, I dunno, but the entertainment of these episodes is them disagreeing anyway.

The isolation Harris feels about his Phish Phandom:

"Well I can't talk to anyone, that is why I need to host a call-in show just to talk to somebody about Phish."

Nick articulated some of their problems well. The only song I've really liked so far is Harry Hood and that's one that actually seemed to feel more cohesive because it's going for a big beautiful epic sound that keeps building and it mostly sticks to that. But Divided Sky for instance sounded like it was about to go in that direction, from the song title you'd think it would, but then it goes into some silly jaunty thing, which would be fine if they'd stick with that, but it sounded like each musician was playing a different style of music.

I really want to start a podcast called "Dying Alone," where it's just me by myself, talking about how Don't Stop or We'll Die is the greatest band ever.

The whole podcast is making my morning, but I'm losing it right now during the Marcus call.
