RERUN: The Walt Disney Family Museum; S02 E16

November 2nd, 2017

The first 2 years of our podcast had 39 episodes, and in that time we stretched our legs a lot to work on figuring out what we wanted to be about. This week's episode is one of my 2 favorite episodes from the first 2 years. (Outside of the Radio Plays, of course..) 

My trip to the Walt Disney Family Museum was one of my first road trips with my lovely wife, and it was my first chance to experience this amazing place. I really didn't know what to expect going into this, but it was a total perception shifting experience for my feelings about Walt and the entire Disney company. As an enthusiast of the history of Disneyland, for the very special place that Walt Disney had in my life, and as a former Cast Member and Skipper... Well, this place just hit me on all levels. I was really proud to put together this "review" of my experience. It is one of the first times that I feel like the mature voice of the podcast emerged, but I also feel like it is an episode that I would not change a single word of... 

I hope you guys are enjoying the recaps...

RERUN: The $55 Podcast, pt 2; S02 E15

October 18th, 2017

Hey Adventurers! This week we have the second half of our podcast interview with Skipper Jonathan Rushing, who infamously rang up an expensive parking ticket while we recorded his appearance.

If you are both stylish and love the Jungle, we have a lot of new products available in our Skipper Store. Take a peek, if you have a moment. Even if you don't find anything that you want to buy right now, please feel free to give a "like" to any of the styles that interest you, so we can make sure we are putting up stuff that interests you.


RERUN: The $55 Podcast, pt 1

October 11th, 2017

Lots to say about this episode... This is the first part of an interview with Skipper Jonathan Rushing, who was one of a recent batch of Skips who had left the company after the podcast had just started. It was an interesting chance for me to catch up on what had happened in the Jungle in the 4 years since I had left, but it was also one of the first episodes where I was interviewing someone cold, with no prep or really knowing them. On top of that, the episode got it's name because Rushing had overstayed his parking meter, and it ended up costing him $55 for doing the episode. I enjoyed this one, and it sort of marked a shift in my interview style and tone of the episodes... 


RERUN: Orlandofornia Dreaming: S02 E13

September 29th, 2017

Hey there, Adventurers! The parade of reruns continues. This week we revisit our chat with WDW Skips Alan Shankle and Johnny V. One of our very first Skype episodes, we loved having these chaps on the show. While we never were able to get as many WDW Skips as we liked on the show, these guys definitely shared the personality that they were known for, and we were thrilled to chat with so many of their co-workers on our last WDW trip in Feb 2017.

Thanks for continuing down memory lane with us, and sorry about the late posting this week.


RERUN: Adventures in Editing; S02 E12

September 19th, 2017

The one big take away from this episode is simple: Do not attempt to record podcasts in an outside location when a Harley Davidson convention decides to drive up the street. (We made it all sound amazing, but it was still a huge distraction.)

Skipper Adam Tyler is a true gentleman. A sharp wit, and a great personality made him both great to work with and also an amazing Jungle Skip interview...


RERUN: Love in the Lanai; S02 E11

September 13th, 2017

There are so many reasons I love this interview. First of all, Skippers Brittany and Jer met and fell in love on the Jungle Cruise. Secondly, they are both incredibly wonderful people and great friends. They were in town in December 2011, and we were able to catch up with them for a very special Valentine's Day episode of the podcast.

Things are going well at the International offices of SkipCast Productions. Lots of behind the scenes stuff, including a LOT of new product over at our web-store at RedBubble. Swing over to to see all the goodies...  More big announcements soon!


RERUN: Holiday Noggins, pt 2; S02 E10

September 5th, 2017

The Reruns continue, as we go through our entire catalog of podcasts while we are on hiatus. This week is the second half of our time with Skipper Kipp, and Skipper Rex. We chat about holidays, Jungle Cruise, and we play a game that is one of our most famous moments of the entire podcast, where we ask random people "Prescription Drug, or Cirque Du Soleil Show"... Contestants have to identify whether the name we give them is a prescription drug, or one of those wacky French-Canadian circus shows. (I have seen this ripped off a couple of times after, so we must have done something right...)


RERUN: Holiday Noggins, pt 1; S02 E09

August 29th, 2017

So, it's a Holiday episode? In August? Well, we are running them in order, so these strange things were bound to happen.

Skipper Kipp was, at the time of this taping, still a Skipper. Skipper Rex was not. So we had to pretend like Kipp wasn't Kipp... Of course, Kipp proved himself to be a true Skipper, and was late until 30 minutes into the episode.  Still, it is Kipp, so it's worth waiting for. Part 2 next week.


RERUN: A Rainy Night; S02 E08

August 23rd, 2017

Once again we travel back 5 years, to the winter of 2012. It was a damn wet one, and I was still working out the kinks in the recording equipment. This episode was recorded in the rain, and it shows, But, still, I had a great time chatting with Skipper Ron Robledo, and going over his experiences in the Jungle and in Imagineering. 

Also, just as a note; We discuss a lot of "Theoretical" projects, and general information regarding Imagineering and park plans and such. This is, on my part, pure speculation and just things I had heard over the years. It's not meant to be fact. Actually, if you've listened for all these episodes and think that I know what I am talking about in general, we're in trouble...


RERUN: The Fiancee In The Background: S02 E07

August 15th, 2017

Wow, somehow I've not revisited this episode in 5 years. This is the second half of Joey and Trevor's last apparance on the Podcast, and it was the very first episode that my fiancee (at the time, now my wife) went along with me while I was recording. (Hence the title of the episode). It's so strange going back through and listening to Joey and Trevor now, after so long. Such great cats, I really miss the wild banter we had. 

For people who are new-er to the show, the first season and episodes like this were definitely before we found "Our voice" about what the podcast was about. It is an entertaining listen, but we don't delve into the depths of the Jungle Cruise experience the way we do in seasons 3 and on. Still, it's a fun bunch of guys, and a fun episode.
