Hi everybody and welcome to this week’s episode of Attendance Bias. I am your host, Brian Weinstein.
This week’s guest is a name that Phish podcast fans will recognize: RJB, the CEO and Co-Founder of Osiris Media. As a podcaster, I’m always looking up to the professionals and in the Phish podcast world, you can’t get more professional than Osiris Media. A few months ago, I had Tom Marshall on Attendance Bias to talk about being the face of Osiris Media, the Undermine podcast which was then wrapping up its first season, and Phish’s performance of “David Bowie” from December 29, 1994 in Providence. Tom was excited to talk about everything but he was unable to give too many details about Undermine, Osiris’ flagship podcast that tells about Phish’s history and experience in a non-linear way, since it was just completed. With season 2 of Undermine scheduled to air next week, I was eager to hear more about it and RJ was happy to share what listeners can expect when season 2 gets underway on September 8.
For today’s episode of Attendance Bias, RJ picked “46 Days>Bug” from August 15, 2015 from Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. Played right before the Magnaball festival, RJ and I break down how the band was experimenting and discovering different musical avenues throughout the summer 2015 and how that came to fruition as this MPP run was the last stop on the road toward the ultimate summer culmination: the Magnaball Festival.
So let’s join RJB to hear about season 2 of Undermine, the temporary return of the Helping Friendly Podcast, and “46 Days>Bug” at MPP from August 15, 2015.
