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.

tristan Barefoot Bob was a solid guy. I don't spend a whole lot of time on here, and he was one of the few .netters I actually communicated with via PM. Maybe a year and a half ago, he posted a thread about wanting to write a screenplay in collaboration with a fellow head. Working in the film business, I responded. Not much ever came of it. I got tremendously busy with a string of projects that put me on the road for a number of months, and Bob had his battle to contend with. Still, we shared some interesting chats, both phone and email. About Phish, about life, about his family whom he loved dearly, and of course a few good old fashioned show stories most of us here can relate to. I didn't know him well. But well enough to know he was a good soul, and my sincere condolences go out to his family in case they ever read this.

Dressed_In_Gray I stumbled upon this blog when they were on episode 10. I have been a loyal fan ever since.

Do yourself a favor and check out some earlier episodes, too. Much better than a night of prime time sitcoms.

colinw I had never heard of this padcost before. It is pretty good.

What source are they using for the clips? I assume it isn't the LivePhish releases and is an AUD?
