Don't despair. Really.
I know our update schedule has been iffy since October. But, we ran something like 30 weeks in a row last year with updates. It will happen again, just bear with us.
We have 3 major taping sessions set up for March. More Skips than you can shake a stick at, and I am so excited about some of them. It's going to be a great year.
It just might take a little while to get up and running.
So, don't despair. Just share us with your friends, help us grow, and the rewards will be coming soon.

We wrap up our second half of the interview with Skipper Jeff Rhoads today. More chatting about Tokyo Disneyland, and about Jeff's Facebook page, "Disney friends who have passed our way." (Click to visit)
Nothing up on tap for the next couple of weeks, interview wise, but we're still working on lining them up. Got a couple big tapings scheduled for March, so just keep checking back with us. Feedback, as always, is welcomed.

Skippertainment! That's what we've got here.
Well, after 66 episodes, I finally ran into one I couldn't make a good pun for a title. Still, it's an utterly fascinating "serious" episode where we dig into the history of Disneyland with Skipper Jeff Rhoads, and we get into the late 70's and early 80's at Disneyland. This is like your very own time machine right here. This is a great 2 part episode, so we're stretching your Disneyland Dollars to bring you a really entertaining and magical episode times two.
Thanks for listening, everyone...

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the show. As I am sure that many of you have noticed, we've been "off air" for a little bit. Well, the short answer is, I got married, did a Honeymoon, had Christmas, and am job hunting. On top of that, the Holidays are a rough time to get taping dates, as people apparently want to spend time with their family.
We don't have a deep catalog of episodes ready to come out, so it might be 2-3 weeks before we can get another new episode for you. We're hoping to get back onto a weekly schedule by March.
Today's episode, however, totally makes up for it. It's super exciting! Today we talk with the Mayor of West Hollywood, and a Jungle Cruise alum, Skipper John Duran. (Mayor John Duran. Skipper Mayor John Duran. Ok, whatever.) John tells fantastic stories about his time at Disneyland, the political culture of the resorts, and the cultural changes that were happening around the country during the early 80's. He's a charming, charismatic, and like-able person, and we need more people like him in our political process. (Ex-Skippers, I mean...)
We'll be back with a new episode as quickly as possible, but make sure to come visit us at Facebook.com/JungleCrews
to get all the latest info on what is happening with new episodes.

Slowly but surely, we're cleaning up the audio on the Skype episodes that have right/left dialogue. Sorry it's taken so long.
If you haven't noticed it yet, we've got a new webpage! Cleaned up, and with clever organizational tools to make finding episodes easier. Let us know what you think.
Also, the Holidays were rough for us. After my wedding and Honeymoon, we were smack in the middle of the Holiday season, and I had a hard time locating Skips to sit down with. I've got a bunch of leads out, and I am sure we'll be back in the saddle soon with new episodes.
Finally, the best way to get more episodes is to share us with your friends. Most of our interviews have happened because of referrals from listeners, so please share us with people who might be interested. It's always a good way for us to grow.
Thanks again for a fantastic 2013, and we've got more Skippertainment on hand for 2014.

For those of you keeping track, it is episode 8 of our ongoing radio serial, but it's a good place to start with our beloved Skipper Gary London and his Co-Pilot Skippy!
For everyone, thanks for another amazing year with the Jungle Crews! In 2014 we'll have more interviews with Skippers, and more adventures of Gary London, as well as some amazing surprises. Thanks for all the support. As always, we'd *LOVE* to hear what you thought about the podcast, particularly this year's XMas special. We think it's our best episode yet!

Since we didn't know we were having issues with our older episodes, (The first 10 episodes have been unavailable on iTunes for almost 6 months) I thought I'd go back through the first episode and take out some of the noise, and remaster the voices. The result is a lot of fun.
So, I adore both of these Skips. Skipper Benny and Skipper Kaz are two of the Skips I looked up to most in my time at Jungle, and I am indebted to both of them for sitting down with me and helping me get a feel for what the podcast was going to be about. On top of that, it was a pretty decent (and at times, moving) interview.
The second half of the episode needs a lot more sound cleanup, but here's part 1 for now. We hope your Holidays are going well, and keep telling your friends about the show. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Here's the audio-enhanced second half of our interview with Skipper Timothy Bernardi and his time at WDW's Jungle Cruise!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and enjoy! More remastered episodes on the way soon.

We fixed the audio quality and the stereo/mono issues on this first half of the interview with Skipper Timothy Bernardi from the Orlando sister ride of the Jungle Cruise. It's a lot cleaner to listen to, and no more left/right pingponging. We'll have the second half of this great interview up next Tuesday.
(Back from Hawaii, new episodes in December)

Hey Everybody! It's more Gary London, Skipper... Esquire.
So, this is the last of our Jungle Cruise Radio Plays for the year, and it's going to be the only fresh episode for November. I'm getting married, am going to be on my Honeymoon in Hawaii. I'll be living large in the land of lava, tripping Tiki tones tremendously, and Mai Tai-ing a few on, if you know what I mean.
So, what do you think of our new Radio Plays? Drop us a line! JungleCrews@Gmail.com.
We'll have new episodes toward the end of the year, but we really appreciate your support this last year. We had 30+ new episodes, and amazing listeners. Thank you all so much!
Well, everyone, here we go... Kungaloosh!
