Swimming Against the River, pt 1; S05 E20

April 25th, 2016

Well, it took us long enough, but we're back with a new episode. Also, it took us 3 years to line up this guest. Skipper Larry Kaml was a strong personality during the late 80's and early 90's, and his role in the Narrations program led to one of the most interesting times in Jungle history. He was universally regarded by those he worked with, and I have been chomping at the bit to get him on the show. All it took was a 7 hour drive to central California, and we were golden! 

Catch us over at Facebook.com/JungleCrews for more news and Jungle photos! We'll see you out in the river soon!

Catching up with the Skipperette; S05 E19

April 4th, 2016

Hey everyone! We're back with all new Skippertainment. We chat with our very own Skipperette Jen about the Skipper Canteen, stand up comedy, her vacation to WDW, and the passing of beloved Skipper Andy Rinella... It's short, but it helps us catch up with you. Kungaloosh, friends!


April… a time for fool-ishness…

April 1st, 2016

As many of you guessed, our episode today was a bit of foolery. We'll be back on Tuesday with a brand new episode! The Tales from the Jungle Crews isn't going anywhere!

The Surprise Prize; S05 E17

March 22nd, 2016

So, if you've been around the podcast for more than a few months, you remember Jungle Rummy, our card game that we did a Kickstarter campaign in the fall. One of the top rewards for pledging was an appearance on this very podcast. So this week we welcome Michael and Grace Steuver, the top supporters of the Jungle Rummy game, and the Jungle Crews podcast. We are thrilled to spend a few moments with them, and to welcome them to our family.

The first 6 minutes is a "dummy" episode that we made just to announce the appearance on the show to Grace. So, don't get confused and think that you're coming onto the show as a guest. Unless you want to. Then, give us a yell... We're always happy to have any Skips or ex-Skips on the show. 

RERUN: The Dumbledore Conundrum, S02 E03

March 15th, 2016

Greetings Adventurers! Today we dip back into our archive for a trip back to our 14th episode and a visit to 2012. Skippers Scott Kelly and Jacob Caputo may have worked in different eras, but they each have a great take on the ride. This was back when we used to live record at Trader Sam's, and even though it's early on, you can start to see what we're doing. Enjoy this re-run, and join us next week for a very special episode!


The Double Derail, pt 2; S05 E16

March 7th, 2016

Two weeks ago we got a whole lotta love for our two Skippers, Skipper Amanda Taylor and Skipper Kellie Pitts(York). Well, as promised, here is the second half of that episode with these two lovely ladies. As I warned you the last time, this episode has a LOT more of me geeking out and being a fanboy than usual, and these amazing Skips are the reason why. I loved catching up, and am so glad that I get to share that with you. 

Thanks for all the support, and remember to rate us on iTunes. 

RERUN: The Friend of Disneyland, S04 E04

March 1st, 2016

Skipperette Jen is off this week down in the wild jungles of Orlando. So, I'm taking the helm of this ship back, and we're starting with a re-run of one of my very favorite episodes. Skipper Don Bobbs is such an amazingly nice guy, and his story is one of my favorites. I haven't' reposted this one since we put it up 2 years ago, so it's time to pull it out of the vault and dust it off. If this doesn't get your Disney nerdery up and running, nothing will. These stories are so chock full of names, it's hard to take the grin of nostalgia off of your face.


The Double Derail, pt 1; S05 E15

February 22nd, 2016

Such a fun episode this week. I get to catch up with my Jungle trainer, Skipper Amanda Taylor, and good friend of the podcast Skipper Kellie York. These ladies were right in my generation of Skippers, and we get to go through the usual exploration of their time in the Jungle, as well as catching up on so many of our comrades from our time together. Lots of personal stories, and a bit more banter and gossip than we normally have, but a great time spent with two really fantastic Skippers. 


RERUN: Love in the Lanai; S02 E11

February 16th, 2016

Love... It's really what the Jungle Cruise is about. Well, besides botes, animals, puns, and.... well, let's just say it's all about love, shall we? Just for the sake of argument.

Happy Valentine's Time to everyone! This week we go back 3 years to chat with Skippers Jer and Brittany, who met on the Jungle, fell in Love in the Jungle, and are just freaking adorable. Working with these two was great, and Jer is definitely a brother-from-another-mother to me. 
Kungaloosh, everyone, and see you in a week with another new episode!

Ri-Know What You Did Last Summer; S05 E14

February 9th, 2016

Such busy times here at SkipCast headquarters. Besides work on our new card game, Tales From The Jungle Crews; The Game, we are also busy lining up great interviews for your podcast pleasures. This week, we chat with Skipper Raisa, a recent departure from the docks of Orlando. But she's not just any Skipper. She's been a cast member at all 6 US parks, as well as the 2 water parks. She also has a super sharp wit and a lot of great views of the Jungle experience. We were super excited to finally get her onto the show. 

Make sure you catch her YouTube channel, YouTube.com/Raisa_Lynn. Lots of great Jungle and Disney videos!
Skipper Kyle out!
