Two episodes in and Scott Aukerman still doesn't like Phish. What are we going to do about it? We're going to bring in Adam Scott, we're going to stick to the jams, and we're going to see what happens! Join us on this tour through the cosmos (sorry) and continue to leave your drug advice in theEarwolf forums.

What's this, now?! Did Christmas come 28 days early?

Will you be referring to the holiday show as the "Feast of the Seven Phishes?" (Sorry.)

This was my favorite episode so far, got very off-track at times, but something about Scott, Harris and Adam together is so funny. Like Scott, I also warmed to them during "Harry Hood" and that one at about 54 minutes in, so I could see myself enjoying some of their stuff, but that still seems to leave a lot of terrible funk.

This show should be called "Analyze Harris Wittles' One-Minute Handjob at a Cowboy Mouth Concert"

"Are you ready for my sixth instrument?"

Love the show, getting in some props before the Phish fans get out of bed. Don't ever change xoxo

Really enjoyed this show again. I hope you can convince Adam or Kulap to go to New York.

Masterstroke for Harris! Including Adam Scott, who could be convinced to enjoy everything from Cannibal Corpse to Enya as long as the sound isn't "muddy," gave Harris some added cache with Hot Saucerman (which I'm pretty sure is the name of a Phish song).

The thing I love about Adam Scott is that it seems like he takes these beliefs he actually has (I like America Rock) and then spins them off so completely that he is totally making fun of himself, but in this completely dead-pan, can't-quite-tell kind of way.

Great episode, guys. Just kidding!

Does my Browser read "Episode 5 - Analyze Phish" as a test? Because Phish fans do stay sober sometimes ya know.

So far it seems Harris has been good at explaining the trees to Scott, but at the expense of acknowledging the forest. Thankfully Scott is in tune with his musical roots though, and MSG will make him realize what he's only been given a glimpse of so far: Phish's songs, lyrics, chorus, etc. (admittedly, the meat on the bone for most bands) is the foreplay. You know, the little tickle, tickle, kiss, kiss. Let's face it: it is hard for even the most diehard fan to take this stuff seriously. But we have the advantage of knowing where this leads us to, so we can appreciate the foreplay more. Even under the influence, Scott will report on experiencing some average songs, a few severely annoying ones, and a couple of melodies that stick in his head. But all of this will pale in comparison to the moments when he gets it. When the dude that looked so sketchy just a couple of songs ago now looks like his brother. When the whole floor shakes and the girl wanders through his aisle and stays for just long enough. When he can't figure out how everyone communally knows when to start the glowstick war.

Scott will enjoy. Not all of it. But enough of it to say: "Hey Harris, if they come to the Hollywood Bowl next year, I AM IN.

See you there Gents, and Happy New Year!

Has a list of maybe 10-15 great Phish songs been made on any of these forums yet? I'd love to know which songs to download and from which live shows.

I hope the message boards aren't too mean to Harris for this one. I found some of the songs surprisingly tolerable - give that guy a gold star, I didn't think it was possible. The only real downside of this episode, as with all of them, was that I had to listen to Phish.

This whole thing is my reality...Constantly trying to get people on the Phish bandwagon. Everyday at work I crank Phish (only person with an ipod dock at my desk)...My work pod has 6 people in it. I have converted 2 out of 6!! Its hard work. Obviously seeing them live is key. But the tunes you played on Episode 2 sucked!! Train Song, Farmhouse, Bouncin, Zero...Come on Harris...!! Scott likes the more instrumental stuff...How about a Divided Sky?? Harris, don't join a religion or cult, that needs members, cuz you ain't coverting anyone. I love this band, but you are killing us right now.
Unfortunately the drugs are key, I hate to say it, but its true.

How stoned do you have to be to accidentally post the same thing twice in four hours? Way to reinforce stereotypes about Phish fans. :P

As for the episode, I am loving it. Not quite as hilarious to listen to as the other two, but it had more genuinely interesting conversations, and some of the Phish music was actually good. REALLY looking forward to the MSG episode. Hearing Scott try to coherently podcast while wasted out of his mind sounds like podcasting GOLD.
