The “turning points” in Phish history. What comes to mind? What’s on your list? On this week’s episode of the Helping Friendly Podcast, the crew is joined by the great @waxbanks to discuss these moments throughout the history of the band. As you probably know, Wally (@waxbanks) is the author of two Phish books, one on A Live One and one about Fall 1997. Wally brings a really unique and smart perspective, and this episode is a great example of that. This is Part 1; Part 2 will be up next week. We appreciate you listening, and you can review and subscribe to the Helping Friendly Podcast on iTunes, or listen through the player below. The HF Pod team is me, @mdphunk, @rowjimmy and @brad10s. Thanks for your support!

mcgrupp81 Good listen. Waiting for part II. Imagine 3/1/97 Wolfman's might make the cut.

Captain_Fantasy Awesome listen. @waxbanks is definitely one of, if not THE, most influential posters to me. His reviews of shows are originally what made me fall in love with .net and influenced me to look at Phish in an analytical demeanor. Until I read his reviews, I would have said that looking at Phish in an academic sense is a waste of time and is against the point. Maybe those are both true, but analysis has brought me closer to the band's music and it truly is a Hell of a lot of fun. Great stuff! Check it out!
