Hey there, Adventurekateers,
It's that time of year again... Rerun season. But, this one is new to most of you. I did a little interview over on a podcast called "The Sweep Spot", and they were generous enough to let me rebroadcast it here on the SkipCast Network. (December, always a tough month for us to put up content, but I love the ex-custodial guys over at TSS, and I had a great time doing a podcast with them...)

Hey there, Jungle Fans!
Here's the second half of our great chat with Skipper Matt Leiker. We chat a bit more about his time at Disney, but also about his art. His website is www.WorldOfMateo.com
, and he does some really amazing images. Have a great week, and let us know what you think in the comments...

Welcome back, everyone!
Sorry about the sporadic updates. The fall and winter is a really hard time for us to line up interviews, and it has been every year. But, I think we're good through the end of 2014.
This week's episode is a chat with Skipper Matt Leiker. Matt was at Disneyland from 1990 to 96, and has a really great perspective as a Skip, trainer, lead, and general Disney enthusiast. I had a great time chatting with him, and going back through his memories. Part 2 will be up in 2 weeks.
Thanks again, everyone, and enjoy the episode!

Here we go, my friends, another week of podcast goodness...
This week, we break our 2.5 month tradition of only having guys named "Don" on the podcast. We sit down with Skipper Wayne Martin and Skipper Pat O'Brien to chat about their time at Disneyland in the 80's and 90's... What follows is a barrage of Disney trivia, stories of the parks, and the kind of good natured discussion you've come to expect from us here at the Worldwide Leaders in Adventure...
This is the first half, and the next will be up in 2 weeks. Hope your fall is starting off as well as ours is!

Hey everyone... The reaction from the first part of our interview with Skipper Don Bobbs was fantastic, and this second round has even more fantastic Jungle goodies in it. Keep listening and sharing.
We're still looking for Skippers to interview, so don't forget to drop us a line at JungleCrews@gmail.com.

Wow, is this week's episode a doozie. Skipper Don Bobbs is with us, recounting highlights from his 16 years at Disneyland, starting in 1968. That's right, the 60's. We're getting historical and hysterical this week. Don was a guest favorite, and since the time I started this podcasts, I had requests from many to have him on the show. I'm super excited to have him, and it was a great interview.
On another note, I finally invested in a wind screen for my microphone and better noise reduction, so even though it's outside, it's a lot better audio quality. Let me know if you think so. Part 2 of this will be up on Sept 16th.

Here you go, everyone... the final part of our interview with the legendary Don Chapman! See you in 2 weeks.
August 5th, 2014
Hey there everybody! Welcome back. This is the second part of our three part episode with Don and Lois Chapman. Of course, you're probably reading this because you've already heard the first part, so I won't belabor the point...
The response from our first episode with Don has been fantastic, and we've picked up so many new subscribers and listeners! Thanks, everyone, we've got a lot of great interviews coming for you this year.
See you on August 19th for part 3 of this great series.

Damn, that is one long episode name. But, if there's another Skipper we could get on the show who epitomizes the Jungle Cruise experience better, it's not clear to me who that is.
Skipper Don Chapman and his wife, Lois, sat down with me for a whole 2 hours for a trip down the River of Memories. Don was a fixture at the Jungle for nearly 2 decades, and was at Disneyland from 1981 to 2003. Stories of his no-nonsense style were passed down even after he left the park. He was held in the highest regard by his co-workers, and it was such an incredible pleasure chatting with him.
We've got 3 whole episodes with Don, and we'll have more good stuff coming in September. Our 4th year promises to be amazing, and we're looking forward to lots of great Jungle Goodness. Let us know what you thought of the episode.
