RERUN: The Mayor of the Jungle; S03 E07

December 3rd, 2016

We are busy beavers around the Jungle Crews offices... We just have had cruddy luck in lining up interviews in our post-C&D era. So, we're going to be putting up a few re-runs every week to help you get your quota of Holiday Jungle goodness.

Our 2nd card game, King of the Skippers, is shipping now from our Kickstarter. If you missed it, you can pick up a copy here:

As always, we continue to put out daily Jungle news, photos, vintage memories, and collectable Lennox plates at our Facebook page. Join us here for the latest news from the Jungle.

We are continuing to look for Skippers of any era to interview, but particularly from the 1960's-80's, or any Tokyo or Orlando Skippers we can find. Please email us at if you would like to appear on the podcast.

Thanks for hanging in with us. We may have slowed down this fall, but we're still working hard to line up good content. We're also going to February's big Skipper gather at WDW, so we'll bring back a lot of Orlando interviews from that event.

Kungaloosh, everyone!

RERUN: Our Buddy, Skipper George S03 E16

November 2nd, 2016

Hey Adventurers! Did we just have a huge gap in episodes? Yep, we did, and here's why...

You may have noticed our 60 day absence on new episodes. This was, sadly, not a coincidence. We had a C&D notice given to us on Sept 2nd, and we had to legally not publish any new episodes or content while we sorted out the issues with the plaintiff. There's a couple of episodes that have been "corrected", but it's not something that legally we can discuss. So, there ya go. We are still making podcasts, but we had a real stretch of having a hard time getting interviews lined up while we were working on the C&D and the Kickstarter game. We're in the process of setting up a couple of interviews, and should have things back up soon. In the meantime, we can start doing re-runs again. Thanks for your patience about this. It wasn't something we could comment on until the waiting period was resolved.

So, here's an episode I really like. Skipper George Trullinger is, hands done, one of the nicest guys that has ever been a Skipper. I was so happy he took an hour away from his family during a Disneyland trip to sit down with us. We were also super excited that Skipper Fred Eich was in the area, and decided to sit down with us and share his stories too. This is a favorite, and a good way for us to get back into the swing of things.

Bag of Worms: S06 E03

September 5th, 2016

Wooh Golly! What a couple of weeks we have had. Our Kickstarter is off and running, and we are well on our way to funding. We have tons of exciting backer rewards, and the game has super great Jungle art. So, search Kickstarter for "King of the Skippers", or check out all the information on Facebook... 

Today's interview is a recent pair of lovebirds, Skippers David and Kelsey. They talk about life in the Jungle, relationship tips about how to keep your love alive at Disney, and we delve into a mysterious Jungle event, lost to the ages.

Thanks for all the support. We'll keep them coming, every 2 weeks.

The Curse of Super Successful Sean; S06 E02

August 23rd, 2016

Hey Skips and Skipperettes! 

Season 6 is here, and we're in the swing of our Fall Kickstarter. Starting August 26th, we are promoting "King of the Skippers", an amazing party card game with art that brings to life characters from our Jungle Crews Radio Plays. It's a super easy to learn game with a competitive edge that will appeal to players of games like Uno. We have fantastic stretch goals, and backer rewards, and can't wait to see you there. Join us at

Today's interview is with Skipper Matt Gambino. Matt turned his Jungle Cruise experience at WDW in the early 90's into a launchpad for his career, and he has some great insights about the college program and working Jungle. We had a super fun time chatting, and it's always great learning more about our East Coast cousins.

Keep your eyes peeled, everyone... We've got episodes lined up and lots of excitement during our Kickstarter. Can't wait to take this trip with you.

Season 5 recap and Kickstarter Announcement!: S06 E01

August 15th, 2016

Hey there, Skips and Skipperettes, 

Welcome back from our Summer Vacation. We had a fun summer, and we hope you did too. We have a ton of interviews scheduled, but most importantly we have our fall Kickstarter launching on August 26th. King of the Skippers is a fun family friendly party card game for 4-8 people. We have amazing art, and the game is only an incredible $8 per deck. Lots and lots of great information over at Check it out, and thanks for your continued support.

This episode is a 10 minute recap of our Season 5, as well as updates on my Disneyland Paris visit and details on our Kickstarter. Lots of good info, as we get ready to plunge into Season 6.

Season 6, coming soon…

August 1st, 2016

Hey Adventurekateers!

Well, we're just a few weeks away from new episodes, and I wanted to take a second and say thanks for supporting us during our summer break. 

The big news is that our next Kickstarter is going to be launching at the end of August. We're still finalizing the last of our plans, but we're excited that "King of the Skippers" will be coming soon. It's a light party card game, so if you enjoy Uno, or liked Jungle Rummy, this game is going to be perfect for you. It's going to have a price cheaper than a trip to Starbucks (with a pastry), so I know you're going to love it. 

We're working hard on getting our new episodes recorded, and putting together some amazing events for the Kickstarter. So, stay tuned!

We're also now on Instagram at Take a peek there for the best of the Jungle Cruise photos...

July 12th, 2016

Middle of July? Tired of the Re-run episodes as Skipper Kyle is lost in the Jungles of Europe? Well, too bad, because we have one more episode. What words can be said about Skipper Adam Rotella? So, so many, and he uses them almost all himself. This three part episode is a doozie, as Skipper Mike Robles and Matt Nerrie join us for an amazing set of episodes. We'll be putting all three of these back up for your enjoyment!


RERUN: A Rainy Night; S02 E08

July 5th, 2016

We continue the "Best of" playlist for our Summer Vacation. This week, we're heading back in time with Skipper Ron Robledo, as we chat about the Jungle, Disney Art, and his time as an illustrator. Great interview, wet background, and a lovely cool podcast for a warm July day... Happy 5th of July, everyone... Hope you had a great Independence Day!

Skipper Kyle
