Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Derek Hartley of Portland, Maine. Derek chose to speak about July 26, 2017, better known as Powdered Night of the Baker’s Dozen at Madison Square Garden. 

Two nights of Phish’s landmark residency have already been covered on Attendance Bias, so I initially wasn’t sure what else could be said, but immediately after em...

Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Chris from the Phish Just Jams website and app. We all love Phish songs, but sometimes you just want to get straight to the jams, and that’s what Chris, and his brother Brian, created: a database that allows fans to do just that.  In addition to Just Jams, Chris is here to talk about the second set of an out-of-nowh...

Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. We have a very special guest for today’s episode. For the most part, Attendance Bias is focused on fans of the band, and each fan tells his or her story. But once in a long while, a person directly associated with the band will come on the podcast to talk about their history with Phish and to break down a special show or jam. Tom Ma...

Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Drew Plettner of Charlotte, North Carolina. For today’s episode, Drew chose what is likely the most recent show for any guest, if you leave out any of the recap episodes: August 6, 2021 at Deer Creek.

The summer 2021 tour was an odd time for Phish and Phish fans. It was really an odd time for the world at large. This...

Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Robert Miller. 

I love every episode of Attendance Bias, and while hosting this podcast, it’s become clear that the word “special” or “meaningful” means something different for every Phish fan. Some people want to talk about their first show, others have a special connection with the venue or city where the show was ...

Hello everyone, and welcome to Attendance Bias! I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Before anything, I want to begin today’s episode with a message of gratitude. A few weeks ago, I put out two requests to you, the attendance bias audience. First, I had to swallow my pride and ask for monetary donations. Attendance Bias, or any podcast, is not free to produce. It does take quite a bit of money to produce each episode on a weekly basis,...

Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Shawn Fausett of Colorado. 

For me, there are some Phish shows that I’ve always taken for granted as being part of the DNA of the assumption that Phish is one of the greatest bands of all time. Every fan may have his or her own list, but I always assumed that there are some that are inarguably great, with a capital “...

Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is fan Eric Creighton of Illinois. 

For this episode, Eric picked a show that was an instant classic from a legendary tour: December 7, 1997 at the Ervin J. Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio. I know, I know. This show is often cited as a top tier show from one of the best tours in Phish history but believe it or not, the on...

Hi everybody. And welcome to today's episode of attendance bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein.

For today's conversation, Damon picked Phish's show from October 8th, 1995 at the Adams Fieldhouse at the University of Montana in Missoula. Now, this is a pretty unique pick for a number of reasons. Number one, it was played in 1995. ...
