Attendance Bias is a podcast for fans to tell a story about an especially meaningful Phish show.
Hi everybody and welcome to today’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest–Derek Hill–picked an outstanding show from an underappreciated year: August 14, 2009 at the Meadows Music Center in Hartford, CT. Long-time listeners of Attendance Bias may remember that I recorded a mini-episode about the version of “Icculus” from this show, which was played right in the heart of the 2nd set.
And that lea...
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today, we are taking a ride on the the way-back machine as guest Jay Wilson takes us to the UNH college campus and tells us about his second show–April 11, 1994 at Sively Arena.
1994 was a pivotal year for the band in so many ways. In addition to this spring tour promoting Hoist–which was produced to be their most commercially viable...
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. I am not a parent, but something that I frequently hear from my friends who have kids is that one of the best parts of being a parent is that you get to see the world, and the things you love, through the eyes of your kids. If that is a benefit of having kids, then today’s guests must be two of the happiest people in the world of Ph...
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Sam Huber, from the Philadelphia area. Sam is an enthusiastic fan who picked a show where the crowd energy just seeps through the audience recording–July 5, 2013 at SPAC in Saratoga, NY.
A few themes come up repeatedly in today’s conversation: how special SPAC is, peacefully surrounded by trees that seem to have an...
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guests are able to offer a unique insight into Phish’s music because they each play in a Phish cover band. Not only that, but they both play keyboards in separate Phish cover bands!
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Ryan Thompson who is here to tell us about Phish’s show from August 10, 1997 at Deer Creek. The fall 1997 tour is the one that is better known, but there were a lot of quirks, idiosyncrasies and highlights in the summer of that . 8/10/97 features all of this and more.
When I listened to this show, I understood almost...
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. If you have a pet, especially a dog or a cat, you may want to bring him up to the speakers for today’s episode. That is because today’s guest is Jordan Sheldon, the founder and operator of Dog Faced Toys–the online pet shop for Phish themed dog toys. For today’s show, Jordan chose to tell his story of being surrounded by friends at ...
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. As a podcast host, I am always on the lookout for new podcasts and I recently found out about one that I really enjoy, and so I reached out to the hosts to come on Attendance Bias. Luckily, of the two hosts, one of them is a big Phish fan, while the other is…well, less so. I’m never one to exclude, so today, I welcome the co-hosts o...
It's over! The Lucky 7 shows of Phish at MSG over the summer of 2023 has come and gone...and BOY do we have a lot to say about it. Join me and friend of the podcast Ben Fortgang as we review the last two nights of the MSG run, and the summer residency as a whole.
Thank you for listening and regular episodes of Attendance Bias will resume this week. Cheers!
It's mid-week and we are now officially more than halfway through Phish's 7-night run at Madison Square Garden. I get the feeling that we could ALL use a day off, and what better thing is there to do on your day of than...talk about Phish?!
Ryan Storm of Storm Sound was gracious enough to take time on his day off to recap the Tuesday and Wednesday night MSG shows! It's another quick and dirty recap with no ...
It's only been a day since Phish finished their first three nights at MSG! A lot went down, and JW and Skinny from the Stub Me Down podcast are here to recap all of it!
This was a quick and dirty recap, so no edits, no Lightning Round, no music clips, etc. Just three guys giving our thoughts on nights 1-3 at MSG.
Enjoy and see you for round 2!
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is entertainment writer and contributing editor, Jordan Hoffman. I first became of Jordan through his twitter feed, and we tried for a while to set up a show and a date to record. After a while, Jordan chose what is, at the time of this recording, chose the second live performance NOT from Phish. But as we discuss earl...
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. Today’s guest is Bill Stadler who came to discuss one of the best jams from one of the best tours: “Tweezer” into “Izabella” from December 6, 1997 at The Palace at Auburn Hills, Michigan.
When it comes to the fall of 1997, there’s no shortage of shows or jams to break down, and between all of the Phish podcasts out there, lots of it ...
Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein. You know, April 2022 doesn’t sound like it was that long ago. In fact, at the time of this recording, it was just one year ago. But in terms of atmosphere and the public’s attitude toward Covid and indoor, live events, it could have been a life time ago. Compare April 2022 with April 2023, and for those of us with immunocompromised ...

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