RERUN: Nostalgia Cricket, pt 2; S06 E08

August 11th, 2019

Hey there, Adventurers! Glad to see you're still aboard, or ashore, or wherever you are. So much stuff to go over.

After 2 glorious years back at the Jungle Cruise, my time in a boat is ending. This coming Friday will be my last day with Disney, likely for the last time. That means new episodes are planned and in the works, but it may take me a little bit of time to get traction and get rolling again. Luckily, I have 3 more rerun episodes to go, and that will buy me some time.

Thanks for hanging with me for the last 24 months. I know it's been a long wait. Good things are on the horizon. (Oh, and this episode is the second episode with Tony Goldmark, chatting about the state of the parks as of 2 years ago. It's a really good interview, and one I really like...)

Originally Published January 30th, 2017

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.

Kungaloosh!

RERUN: Nostalgia Cricket, pt 1: S06 E07

July 27th, 2019

Hard to believe that we're nearly at the end of our rerun lovefest, and we're just around the corner from new episodes. 

This week we are re-running our time with Tony Goldmark, of the "Some Jerk With A Camera" Vlog, and theme park connoisseur. The first of 2 episodes where we chat about the state of the theme parks, particularly Disney and Universal. 

Originally Published 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!

RERUN: Skippers and Happy Hour, pt 2; S06 E06

July 19th, 2019

I'd love to say that after 8 years, I can stick to a weekly schedule, even with reruns, but this last week was a doozie for me. So, here's the second half of my chat with Katherine and Matt from the WDW Happy Hour Podcast 

Originally Published 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, Katherine 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!

RERUN: Skippers and Happy Hour, S06 E05

July 2nd, 2019

One of the great thing about the last 8 years of Skippertainment is that I've been a guest on so many podcasts, sharing my Jungle Cruise stories. One of those great moments was January 2017, and the WDW Happy Hour podcast. Matt and Katherine have become not only great Jungle Cruise supporters, but great friends. We do a lot of cross pollination of our podcasts, and their podcast is one of only 2-3 Disney podcasts that I listen regularly to. They do a great job, have fun discussions, and nice Disney news recaps. Plus, alcohol! So, here's the first part of our two part interview from their show.

Originally Published 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. 

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

Kungaloosh!

RERUN: Skipper Stories, S06 E04

June 26th, 2019

Here's the part where I go "holy crap, I've known Dave Marley for nearly 17 years...". We're still doing our reruns for the time being until we get all the old episodes out there, but this one is a special one. The author of "Skipper Stories", "Skipper Stories 2, Electric Boogaloo", and "Really, Even More Skipper Stories?" sat down with us to chat about his time at the Jungle, the pantsless life of a Professor, and writing a book about the place we all have grown to love.

Originally Published December 9th, 2016

New episodes have returned! This week we sit down with Skipper David Marley, author of the new book "Skipper Stories" to chat about what he learned during his time writing the book about the history of the Jungle and those who have dared to adventure on it. 

His book is available here, from Amazon.

We're continuing to push forward into the new year, and we appreciate all the support. Keep your eyes open, we're still doing a lot of fun stuff in the upcoming months.

Kungaloosh!

Holy Crap, A New Episode! S06.5 E01

June 5th, 2019

Well, after 2 years, we have a new episode... sort of. I mean, it is new, but it's not strictly a Jungle or interview episode. Hi there, I'm Skipper Kyle, and I'd like to announce the return of Tales from the Jungle Crews.

My time with Disney is coming to an end in a few months, and with that, I am able to start producing some new content again. This episode is a in-betweener from Season 6 to Season 7, as I take you through my experiences at the Black Spire Outpost at Galaxy's Edge, and give you some updates about my life, the Jungle, and what to expect in the coming months from the podcast.

I'm looking forward to coming back and bringing you some new Skippertainment! Kungaloosh, my friends!

RERUN: Bag of Worms, S06 E03

May 28th, 2019

Back in 2016 we had a Kickstarter going for our 2nd card game "King of the Skippers", and we had a couple of recent Jungle expats from Disneyland (and cute as hell lovebirds) on the show to talk about their recent time at Jungle in 2015-2016. So, jump back into the very recent past and enjoy our time with Skipper Kelsey and Skipper Dave.

Originally Published 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.

RERUN: The Curse of Super Successful Sean, S06 E02

May 17th, 2019

The reruns keep on coming... This week we chat with Skipper Matt Gambino, and talk about WDW and its college program, and how to turn your time at the Jungle Cruise into a successful career. 

Oh, and... Season 7 kicks off the first week of July! Looking forward to being back in front of your ears on a regular basis.

Originally Released On 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 www.Bit.do/KingoftheSkippers

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.

RERUN: Season 5 recap and Kickstarter Announcement!: S06 E01

May 2nd, 2019

We're down to the last dozen episodes and season 6, then lots of fun new things are in the works. I'm going to be making those announcements as May comes toward a close. I mean, there's nothing else that is happening at Disneyland around the end of the month, right?

This episode is probably a little bit inconsequential to the catalog, but I'm including it for completeness. It's a recap of Season 5, details of my trip to Disney Paris, and info on our Kickstarter game "King of the Skippers". Hard to believe that's been 3 years already.

Keep on Cruising, friends... and Kungaloosh!
