Adventures in Fandom, pt 2; S06 E11

March 7th, 2017

Greetings, Adventurers!

This week we are putting up the second half of our interview with Skipper Leo Camacho. Since our last episode with Leo, he has started a new gig as a host for "Game Talk Live", a new video game news show on Facebook. It's a fun broadcast for game minded people, and you can find it broadcast live every day on Facebook. 

This episode notably doesn't have much Jungle Cruise discussion, but we do talk Disney Cosplay, and media content in the age of social media. Should you start a podcast? What should you do to get listeners? We also just break into the outwardly neardy and chat about some of our favorite Disneyland moments. So, enjoy!

RERUN: A Well Traveled Rhoads, pt 1: S03 E08

February 28th, 2017

This week we dip back nearly exactly 3 years ago to our first chat with Skipper Jeff Rhoads. Jeff is another keeper of Jungle history and it's easy to see how much of a place in his heart that Disney holds. He's genuinely one of the nicest guys I have met, and the podcast chat has luckily turned into a friendship. There's stories in his history that are really amazing, including his experiences with Tokyo Disneyland. I hope you guys enjoy this week's rerun episode, and we have more new content next week.

February 21st, 2017

Hey there, Adventurers! This week on the Podcast, Skipper Leo Camacho, darling of the Disneyverse. We take 2 episode and chat about his time at Disneyland, his fandom experience, and how great of a time it is to be immersing yourself in fandom at this time. We have a great time with Leo, and he is a Skipper through and through.

Adult Onset Adultness; S06 E09

February 13th, 2017

Like so many of our greatest episode titles, this one is a total inside joke that we won't be sharing. Still, trust me that it's funny.

Today's episode guest is living proof that if I wait long enough, I will interview everyone I work with when they leave the employ of The Mouse. Skipper Andrew Petersen is a goddamn delight, and I'm glad to have called him a strong acquaintance for the last 10 years, and a friend for part of that. (Or most... the details are foggy.) When Andrew left Disney last year, I knew we'd have to get him on the show. He has a reputation for telling good stories, and he does not disappoint. So, enjoy one of those episodes I have waited nearly 6 years to record! 

(And next week get a whole episode with my thoughts on my recent trip to WDW)

RERUN: Orlandofornia Dreaming: S02 E13

February 7th, 2017

Hey Adventurers!

We are back from Walt Disney World where we got to spend some time with a big group of Skippers from Orlando's 80's and 90's. We had a SUPER time getting to meet some new friends. We are setting up interviews as we speak, but we wanted to bring you this blast from the plast. This is from our second season when Skippers Johnny V and Alan Shankle were our first WDW Skips on the show. Here's a little something to hold you over whlie we get caught up with all the work we need to catch up on.

January 30th, 2017

Hey there, Adventurers!

Part two of our chat with YouTube personality Tony Goldmark is here. We really hope you are enjoying his content online, and we start off this episode discussing his RiffTrax/MST3K style take on the Disneyland Opening Ceremonies Broadcast. 

We are headed to Orlando for the big Skipper Gathering there this weekend, so we'll be in reruns for a few weeks, and coming back at you with new episodes ASAP.

Nostalgia Cricket, part 1; S06 E07

January 23rd, 2017

It's really rare that we have a non-Skipper on the show. But, we occasionally get the chance to have someone on who is so entertaining, and has such good insight about the park experience, that we book them as quickly as we can. Plus, on top of that, our guest produced the YouTube video last year that had me laughing the hardest that I have ever laughed at a Disney produced tv special. That's right, Some Jerk with a Camera, Tony Goldmark, producer and creator of the Disneyland Opening Ceremony Riff videos, is joining us on the podcast. Besides being a strongly opinionated and humorous chap, he's also got an amazing insight into the Theme Park Fandom. We were super honored to have him join us. 

In case you want easy access, his videos can be found here...

This is part 1, part 2 will roll out next week!

Skippers and Happy Hour, Pt 2; S06 E06

January 19th, 2017

Hey Adventurers! A little early from us, but never too much good Jungle stuff... We have a lot in the pipeline, so we wanted to put out this episode a little early so we can make sure next Tuesday's episode is good to go before our trip to Orlando. 

Today is the second half of our chat with the crew from the WDW Happy Hour podcast, Kathleen and Matt. These guys are great supporters of the podcast, and their show is a solid show in it's first year. So, we love promoting them, and we thank them for all their help. We continue our discussion about where WDW is currently at, and chat more about tips for our visit.

Kungaloosh, everyone!


Skippers and Happy Hour; S06 E05

January 10th, 2017

The last few months of 2016 limped past, and 2017 staggered in the door drunk. At least we have a podcast episode to truly celebrate the sort of inebriation that was needed to handle the last 3 months.

We are joined by the hosts of the WDW Happy Hour podcast in a cross polination of our shows, and also because Katherine and Matt are two fun guys who I really enjoyed chatting with. They were big supporters of the Jungle Crews podcast last year, and I wanted our audience to get to know them a little bit. We chat Disney remake movies, WDW vs Disneyland, and of course the best places to eat and drink at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Lots of good fun, and an enjoyable 2 part episode. 

We are off on Feb 3-5th to Walt Disney World for a big Skipper Gathering of East coast and West coast Skips! We promise to bring back a lot of fun audio and video for you! 

Thanks for sticking through the dry times. We love you guys. All of you. Except Dave. You know who you are, Dave.

RERUN: Jungle Crews Radio Play XMas Episode

December 21st, 2016

So, if you are new-ish to the Podcast, this might confuse you without a little explanation. 

One of my favorite parts of the podcast was the 8 episode "Radio Plays" that we produced. Featuring the adventures of Skipper Gary London and his co-pilot Skippy, these shows have been fan favorites from the start of the series. They were our little look into a fictional Jungle universe, and our tribute to the Jungle Cruise. This episode is our last Radio Play, and the Christmas Episode based loosely on a story that we all know and love. Every year I make sure we re-post it around the holiday season, as our little love letter to the lost adventures of Gary London. I know he's out there somewhere, on the River, probably hip deep in egg nog and cheap scotch. Merry Christmas, Gary and Skippy!

And a very Merry Christmas to you all!
