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.

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?

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.

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!

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...

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...
