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.

  5. Without Kulap to keep 'em in line, Howard and Engineer Stard leave it to the universe to guide this week's extra special TWO CHARTED!

Howard and Stard cover every topic imaginable, including powerful Russian drugs, art versus animals, the anniversary of Howard's first make out session, and an update for all the loyal Chartists on Howard's sister's relationship with the man who caused the infamous fainting spell. Howard recommends an unforgettable donut shop before welcoming a surprise celebrity guest who just so happened to be in the right place at the right time. The mystery guest and Howard get personal and tease an epic Wie-Wie story that will (hopefully) be discussed in a future episode.

    Yup, you guessed it — it's time for a Kyle Dunnigan solo episode! Kyle takes a break from his writing in New York to perform some listener-suggested Punkys and get into it with multiple special guests.

The gang then throws it to the professor and first-time Earwolf guest Bo Burnham to talk about hemorrhoids, the best Starburst flavors and eventually get to the night's topic — the Internet. Bo explains how he got his start on the Internet, talks about Reddit, Vine, and his relationship with music as Aaron tries his best to compare YouTube to Charles Darwin.
  11. The hatch hiatus continues as Professor Blastoff comes to you live from The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY! David, Tig and Kyle hilariously interact with some old friends who serendipitously reunited in the audience at the show before engaging in an incredibly memorable acapella rendition of an A-Ha classic. After spending way too much time talking about gonorrhea, the gang welcomes Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Charles Duhigg, author of the New York Times Bestseller "The Power of Habit", to talk about all things related to habits and play a rather scathing round of What's Nuts? Charles talks about the difference between good and bad habits before the Blastoff crew reveal their own personal bad habits, and eventually the audience gets in on the action and share their own vices with our expert guest. And yup, you guessed it — we also Name That Punky!
