Phish-Loving Journalists Work Phish References Into Discussion On MSNBC

Advertisement

Bob Costa is far from the only Phish-loving Journalist to appear on MSNBC. Those paying close attention to a panel discussion on the cable station this afternoon may have noticed a volley of Phish references between the host and a panel member.

MSNBC host Katy Tur hasn’t hidden her love of the Vermont quartet in the past and the same is true of Politico senior writer Jake Sherman. The pair had fun with their fandom during a chat about House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes.

Tur started by introducing Sherman as “My Friend, My Friend.” Sherman couldn’t help but smile and you could almost see the gears turning in his head as she referenced the song from Phish’s Rift LP. He quickly responded, “It’s kind of dizzying. I’m having a tough time…I’m ‘Bouncing Around The Room’ a little bit” in reference to the song from Phish’s Lawn Boy album.

Watch how it went down:
