RERUN: Descent into Madness, pt 1; S02 E22

December 14th, 2017

 This is where the podcast took an abrupt, sharp right turn for a few episodes. This one isn't for the faint of heart, as Skipper Mike Robles, Adam Rotella, and eventually Matt Nerrie joined me for an afternoon of many podcast recordings, and much much drinking. This one may only really be enjoyable to the very select group of people who knew us all, but I've been told by some listeners that they really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the carousing. (Even if they didn't catch the particular references to individuals)

So, give it a listen, and do with it as you will... it turned into a really, really wild ride.

RERUN: Pretzels, beer, and Two Hams: S02 E21

December 11th, 2017

The "Boy of Summer" Skipper Matt Nerrie joined me in the Summer of 2013. I was up in Seattle to introduce my lovely fiancee to my family, and we broke away and made a little time to sit at a really cool restaurant in the South Lake Union area of Seattle. This was really a great interview, and had no foreshadowing of the madness and chaos that would entail on the next day and it's podcast taping. I feel like of nearly all the Skips I had interviewed, that Matt and I could have gone on to be morning FM drivetime DJ's. Just saying...

RERUN: The Training Buddy, pt 2; S02 E20

December 9th, 2017

Part 2 of my chat with my old training buddy, Skipper Greg Reilly. Had such a great time catching up with him, and as I am getting ready to be trained on the Jungle the 3rd time, I realize how good the days were then, and miss him.

So, schedule update: In order to get everything out and going, we're going to start going to updates of re-runs twice a week. Monday and Thursdays. I'm going through today and scheduling out the next 3 months, so we'll have a lot of the old episodes reposted. Just a reminder, when we get to the end, they are all going away from this server, so make sure you download them for posterity.

RERUN: The Training Buddy, S02 E19

November 30th, 2017

Skipper Greg Reilly means a lot to me. I mean, a lot a lot. He was my training buddy on the first time I started at the Jungle Cruise. (and your Training buddy is a really special thing.) Bonds are forged, brotherhood (and sisterhood) is cemented, and the experiences you have together are unique to the two of you. When I stub my toe, Greg feels it in Chicago, that's how close we are.

This episode was a lot of fun, the first of two parts with Greg, and a great time catching up.

RERUN: More tales from WDW, part 2, S02 E18

November 14th, 2017

The rerun fun continues with the second half of our interview with Skipper Timothy Bernardi, as we discuss more about WDW and his roles in the past and present. (Yeah, there's not much of an exciting blurb for this... it's just more of a chat with a great guy.)

RERUN: More tales from WDW, S02 E17

November 7th, 2017

Early on in the podcast, we had a lot of trouble finding WDW Skips to interview. Part of that was my lack of technical knowledge in recording from Skype, but it was also just a network of people we had not been able to get in touch with. Skipper Timothy Bernardi, however, was a fan of the show, and he dropped in to Skype and shared his experiences in Orlando. 

This was one of the episodes we nearly lost because of audio quality, but we had some great support and were able to figure out how to mix balance properly. I know that we had a lot of email feedback at the time for how bad it was, but I think the episode sounds great now...

RERUN: The Walt Disney Family Museum; S02 E16

November 2nd, 2017

The first 2 years of our podcast had 39 episodes, and in that time we stretched our legs a lot to work on figuring out what we wanted to be about. This week's episode is one of my 2 favorite episodes from the first 2 years. (Outside of the Radio Plays, of course..) 

My trip to the Walt Disney Family Museum was one of my first road trips with my lovely wife, and it was my first chance to experience this amazing place. I really didn't know what to expect going into this, but it was a total perception shifting experience for my feelings about Walt and the entire Disney company. As an enthusiast of the history of Disneyland, for the very special place that Walt Disney had in my life, and as a former Cast Member and Skipper... Well, this place just hit me on all levels. I was really proud to put together this "review" of my experience. It is one of the first times that I feel like the mature voice of the podcast emerged, but I also feel like it is an episode that I would not change a single word of... 

I hope you guys are enjoying the recaps...

RERUN: The $55 Podcast, pt 2; S02 E15

October 18th, 2017

Hey Adventurers! This week we have the second half of our podcast interview with Skipper Jonathan Rushing, who infamously rang up an expensive parking ticket while we recorded his appearance.

If you are both stylish and love the Jungle, we have a lot of new products available in our Skipper Store. Take a peek, if you have a moment. Even if you don't find anything that you want to buy right now, please feel free to give a "like" to any of the styles that interest you, so we can make sure we are putting up stuff that interests you.

RERUN: The $55 Podcast, pt 1

October 11th, 2017

Lots to say about this episode... This is the first part of an interview with Skipper Jonathan Rushing, who was one of a recent batch of Skips who had left the company after the podcast had just started. It was an interesting chance for me to catch up on what had happened in the Jungle in the 4 years since I had left, but it was also one of the first episodes where I was interviewing someone cold, with no prep or really knowing them. On top of that, the episode got it's name because Rushing had overstayed his parking meter, and it ended up costing him $55 for doing the episode. I enjoyed this one, and it sort of marked a shift in my interview style and tone of the episodes...

RERUN: Orlandofornia Dreaming: S02 E13

September 29th, 2017

Hey there, Adventurers! The parade of reruns continues. This week we revisit our chat with WDW Skips Alan Shankle and Johnny V. One of our very first Skype episodes, we loved having these chaps on the show. While we never were able to get as many WDW Skips as we liked on the show, these guys definitely shared the personality that they were known for, and we were thrilled to chat with so many of their co-workers on our last WDW trip in Feb 2017.

Thanks for continuing down memory lane with us, and sorry about the late posting this week.
