David and Brian take a little bit of Phish and translate it into a lot of other music. They're knowledgeable and entertaining!
Keep it up, guys!
Great way to find new music!
Started listening from the very beginning and each episode has given me plenty of great new and old music to discover. They not only do great deep dives on Phish, but put Phish in a context out of the usual jamband comparisons and influences. Highly recommend this podcast.
The Pond is deep
In the first few minutes of the listening I was convinced I would enjoy this podcast when I heard one of them say this is a podcast for Phish and GD fans who may not enjoy other jambands as much. The banter is good, you can tell they do a lot of prep work. It is quick, concise, and although at first I thought they should play each track in their entirety, the snippets get the job done. I am looking forward to future episodes.
