I have irssi always running in my tmux session but often switch sessions. Is there a way to configure tmux to have a window follow me from session to session?

You can use link-window to pull a window from one session into another. I don't know the best way to automate this process, but manually, it's as simple as

link-window -s irssi:0

This assumes that you have irssi running in window 0 of a session called irssi, but you can change the argument to the -s option as necessary.
