The Helping Friendly Podcast (HFPod) explores the music and fan experience of Phish, through interviews and deep dives on shows and tours. Since 2013, we’ve aimed to bring the fan voice into discussions about Phish, and with the help of our guests, we’re still discovering new angles of appreciation for the band. And when the band is on tour, we provide a review of every show the following day with a fan who was there. As one of our listeners said, “this show has impeccable analysis, stats, commentary and music.” Join us!

Well, here we are, 20 years later. Still upside down, from the Island Tour. We had to celebrate this awesome run, so we talk about a notable jam from each night. We had some laughs, discussed the legacy of the run and how it looks from 20 years out, and then we played some Phish. We hope you enjoy. After all, our intent is all for your delight.
