For those of you not familiar with the Type II Cast, it is a Phish fan podcast that discusses current Phish shows with occasional special episodes dedicated to various Phishy topics. For this week's episode discussing Phish's New Year's run at Madison Square Garden, they invited me to be their guest alongside usual panel members Steve Olker, Josh Korin, and .Net's Chris Glushko. We gathered together virtually on Monday, January 7th, armed with a pile of great audio clips from the run, to share our thoughts on both individual songs and the shows as individual entities and as part of a run of shows. Two hours of quality Phish nerdery ensued. Chris was kind enough to put together rankings of these shows compared to the other multi-night NYE runs starting in 1995, which we discussed as well.
We dedicated this show to the memory of Robert Ekchart, aka Barefoot Bob, a beloved Phish fan who lost his battle with cancer earlier that day.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $750,000 to support music education for children – 210 grants in 43 states, with more on the way.
