Adjacent To Greatness, pt 1; S04 E21

May 26th, 2015

Time for more Skippertainment? This week, it's even more entertain-y than usual. We welcome Skipper David Marley to the podcast. Host and driving force behind the Skipper Standup shows, Dr Marley is also a Disneyland historian, having taught classes on the history of the park, as well as being in the process of writing a book on everyone's favorite attraction, the Jungle Cruise. We're excited to have him, and it has been a long time coming.

We have information on the Skipper Standup shows on our Facebook page, or you can visit for more information on the July 12th show at the Brea Improv.

RERUN: More Tales from WDW, pt1; S02 E17

May 19th, 2015

It seems like May has turned into a whole Orlando themed month, so let's keep that up with our re-broadcast of our second episode with a WDW Skip. Skipper Timothy Bernardi was one of the earliest "fans" of the show, going back to 2012. He spent a whole 2 part episode with us, catching us up on his time at Walt Disney World, working in the theme park industry, and his love of the Jungle. This was our second Skype interview, so the audio is particularly Skype-ish, but we've gone back and fixed the audio as best we could.

Tons of exciting stuff coming in the next few weeks, as always, so stop back next week for another new episode...

The DJ Skipper, part 2; S04 E20

May 12th, 2015

Skipper DJ Elliot is back in the second half of this nail-biting conclusion to the split episode. Did Maria actually die in the car crash? Will Trader Sam ever find love? Will Skipper Kyle ever stop reaching to make really stupid jokes in these intros?

No, seriously, Elliot was a super-cool guest, and we really had a great time going through his experience at the Walt Disney World Jungle Cruise. Hopefully this will be the start of many more exciting adventures in the Orlando Jungle. 
If you haven't discovered them yet, make sure you check out our 28 Skipper-designed shirts in the Merchandise from the Jungle Crews store.
We'll see you all in 2 weeks, with more Skippertainment!

RERUN: The Bicentennial Skipper, Pt 1; S03 E14

May 5th, 2015

Another week, and time for another venture back into the archives of the podcast. This week we go back to Summer of 2014 (it seems so far back, already) and our conversation with Skipper Kevin Cavanaugh. Kevin, at the time, was the Skip who had worked the earliest that we had interviewed. (1976) He was very warm, and welcoming, and we had a really great chat about what it was like to work at Disneyland in the 70's.

I hope you guys enjoy, and remember to check out all the new t-shirt designs over at the Merchandise From The Jungle Crews website...

The DJ Skipper; S04 E19

April 28th, 2015

We're headed back to Orlando! WDW is where the adventures of our latest Skipper Interviewee happened. Skipper Elliot was at the Jungle East, but his adventures span more than just his time in the Jungle. We have a fantastic discussion about the differences between Anaheim and Orlando, as well as his exciting times behind the wheel of the boats in both places. So, pull up a chair, or a car, or wherever you consume your podcasts from, and enjoy!

RERUN: Orlandofornia Dreaming, S02 E13

April 21st, 2015

Just over 2 years ago, we had our first taste of what it was like to work at the WDW Jungle Cruise, when we spoke with Skippers Alan Shankle and Johnny V. This was one of our first Skype interviews, and we're looking forward to doing more. We learned about some of the differences between Disneyland and WDW, and really got a good feel for the Skipper mentality there. This week's rerun is our first trip to Orlando...

But is there a reason *why* we are revisiting our East Coast brethren this week? Well, you will find out on April 28th, for our next new episode! Special surprises abound!

Doctor Stephanie Grace, Attorney at Law, pt 2; S04 E17

April 14th, 2015

Boy, it must be like your Birthday, or something. Two episodes in the same week? Crazy!

We sit down this week again with Skipper Stephanie Grace, as she shares more stories of her time at the Jungle. This episode we even get into the details of her famed "24 Shot" incident. Lots of super-exciting stories with a super fun lady-Skip. She's one of my favorites, and she is just as charming on a microphone as she was in a boat.

Working For The Mouse; S04 E18

April 10th, 2015


Ok, so a couple of days ago, I was alerted to a really cool one man show that is premiering in Los Angeles on Friday, April 10th, open until April 19th. I saw a bit of it, and I knew I had to have this guy on the show. It's a bit strange, because he is a non-Skipper, but his spirit is as much at home in the Jungle as it is wherever the costumed characters hang out... 
The show information is at, and if you are in the LA or Orange County area, I genuinely can endorse this show and recommend that you go see it.
Also, today was the launch day of Merchandise From The Jungle Crews. Art that is designed by Skippers, and is for anyone... We start off with 9 t-shirt designs that are a must have for any fashionable fan's collection. The shirts can be found here, at Merchandise From The Jungle Crews. We'll be adding new shirts and products as time goes on. This will help support the podcast, as well, so swing over and take a peek!
Thanks, everyone, and we'll see you soon.

RERUN: A Piece of Pie and some Coffee, S03 E10

April 6th, 2015

Happy Tuesday! This week is another "off week" for us, so here's the replay of the day...

Back just over a year ago, I got to go hang out with about 20 retired Skips at a private BBQ. I got a chance to sit down and do some really fun interviews, and this one was one of my favorites. Skippers Ed Cunningham and Dave Champagne were a blast to talk to, and this episode gets into a lot of fun Jungle trivia. I hope you guys are enjoying it. We're getting geared up here for a big announcement, hopefully coming soon...

Doctor Stephanie Grace, Attorney at Law; S04 E16

March 31st, 2015

It's that time again, Adventurers!

This week we have the incredible Skipper Stephanie Grace with us for the first of her two part visit. I worked with the lovely Doctor starting back in 2006, and she was always a delight on the docks. I knew she had some great stories to tell, and after the last episode going so far back in time, I thought we could use a trip back to the future.
We'll see you back here in 2 weeks!
