We're not dipping very far back into the vault for this one, but this episode from last April is very short on the listens it deserves. Skippers Jerry Whitfield and Jimm Vest met up with us at a Skipper gathering at a very wonderful Skip's South OC house. It was my first time meeting both of these fine gentlemen, and I really enjoyed the opportunity. We get into the history of the early 80's to the mid 90's at Disneyland, and it is a fine exploration.

So, the clock keeps turning, and our fourth year of Skippertainment comes to a close. We had such an amazing year with you all, and our 5th season looks to be even better. New podcasts, new guests, new t-shirts, and some amazing surprises. Thanks, everyone for joining us on this ride.

Well, this coming Sunday is the Skipper Standup show at the Brea Improv. Have you got your tickets yet? The show will sell out, but it is going to be a heck of a night. This week, we rerun the episode from one of the headliners, Skipper Kipp Hart, joined by Skipper Rex. We hope that you can join us at the show, we'd love to meet podcast listeners! Our very own Skipperette Jen will be one of the performers! (Facebook.com/SkipperShow for ticket information.)

Our 4th year is wrapping up, and we had a busy busy weekend. We met with 120 cm's from the 80's and 90's. We had our Sunday Social at Sam's, and we got to hang out with a bunch of podcast listeners.

Rerun time again, Jungle Fans!
June 9th, 2015
The second half of our chat with Skippers David Marley and Trevor Kelly is here, and we are so excited to share stories of Skipper Standup, Jungle Cruise hijinks, and a little semi-failed comedy bit I tried called "Disney Lies"... great in concept, maybe not as good in execution. So, there is that...

Hey Adventurers! We're back with another rerun to fill our week between episodes. This week, we're revisiting an episode from this time last year. It's not too old, but because it happened before our big "bump", it never really got the number of plays that I feel like it deserved. Skipper Jesse Banda is a great guy, has his own pop culture podcast and empire, and is known for his movie and nerd knowledge. On top of that, he hails from that mid 1990's time where there were so many changes happening in the Jungle. So, let's re-run this one, and hope you all enjoy!

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.

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.
