Founded in 2011, Tales from the Jungle Crews was designed to be an oral history of the Skippers who worked the Jungle Cruise attraction at various Disney parks around the world. For 6 years and 143 episodes, we had dozens of Skips come through our doors, and we have had over 3 million downloads of our little niche podcast. Luckily, in 2011 everyone and their dog didn't have a podcast, and we were able to get in at the start of the "Boom". Our big moment in 2014 was when Chris Hardwick and The Nerdist promoted our podcast, and we saw our daily numbers hit the 20-40k range.
The Tales From The Jungle Crews was a bi-monthly podcast that served as an audio history for some of the wondrous, wacky, and wadventurous things that have happened on board Disney's Jungle Cruise. We interviewed Skippers from 1955 to modern day, and we looked at why this place was so incredible and wonderful. This is a labor of love, and a document of the family that was created after years and years of a magical place being in existence. We are part of the family with all those who have come before us, corporate or ride operator.
In 2014 we made a big push with our Facebook page, and we showcase Jungle news, artwork, vintage photographs, and other Jungle media. We also have a lot of information about the new Jungle Cruise movie coming out in 2020. We also are on Instagram @JungleCrewsPodcast
We hope you enjoy your trip into the Jungle. We are also pleased to announce that after a 2 year break, the podcast has returned with a limited schedule, and new episodes posted irregularly.
