This week, team HF Pod is celebrating its 150th episode in style, looking back on the run that started it all for this era of Phish, Hampton 2009. We talk about the shows and play some highlights from the run as well. Leave us a comment about where you were and your memories from that run.
We start the episode reflecting on the 150 episodes of HF Pod, and then we get into discussing these shows with a lot of music, of course. We mention this NYT article that came out around Hampton '09. Looking back, we found these shows more enjoyable than maybe they get credit for, but as Matt says, a lot of the relisten value is based on nostalgia. Not a lot of jamming, of course, but there are some nice placements in here. Look forward to your feedback.
ALSO, if you were at BIG CYPRESS, please send us a brief audio recording to us. Instructions here.
Thanks for listening, and please give us a review on Apple Podcasts if you haven't yet! See you next time.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
