Instructive & Inspiring

I learn so much every time I listen to this podcast. The depth of knowledge these two have about music is incredible and the connections they make between different genres and The Phish catalog are fascinating. I leave every episode with a playlist of music that I can’t wait to dive into!

A Triumphant Return!!

I was so excited to see a new Beyond the Pond episode had downloaded to my phone. Due to an influx of Phish music, it took me a while to get to listen but WOW did it deliver. So great to hear these two deep dive into a phish jam and drop some burning hot new music recommendations and great comparisons. Keep up the great work guys!!

They’re Back!!!

I’m thrilled to see Brian and David back with us breaking down legendary Phish jams and directing listeners to check out excellent related music, both new and old. This is a must listen for Phish fans and fans of good music in general.
