    Muppet Madness 2015 Wrap-Up

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who played along with me in the Muppet Madness Tournament this year. It was a ton of fun for me, and I hope for you too. The tournament was my re-entrance into the podosphere, which means The MuppetCast is back! It may not be a 100% weekly...

    Serious MuppetCast Poll

    Hi everybody! I'm curious about something, and since I don't know how to set up a poll on a forum post I'd like to instead post the question and get everybody's honest feedback. 1) Do you (or have you ever) listen on Wednesdays to The MuppetCast radio production on Sorcerer Radio? Do you...

    Hey all, I know we've got a few web people here in the forum, and I was wondering if anyone has experience with Wordpress, or even WP Multi-User? I've used WP for years to run MuppetCast.com, but I wanted to check around. Ping me either on here or email me@muppetcast.com if you've got some...

    The MuppetCast - Show #125 - Excelsior!

    Very interesting that I chose to have the crew from The Amazing Comicast on the show this week. I had no idea that Disney was going to turn around within 24 hrs of production and announce their plans to purchase Marvel Comics for a reported $4 billion! Good timing on my part, I guess. But...

    The MuppetCast - Show #124 - Magenta is Beautiful!

    You can't go wrong with an episode about Roosevelt Franklin. Thanks BigBirdFan for helping me out with the music for this one! I think it really came together nicely. I also pulled a few clips from YouTube and one from the Sesame Street Old School DVDs. Along with some personal commentary...

    The MuppetCast - Show #122 - Puppets Up 2009

    Time for another MuppetCast, eh? This week I had fun getting up close and personal with Ben from The Balcony Puppeteers, a Canadian group who annually huddle into a balcony in Almonte, Ontario, and heckle any and all passers-by. Occasionally they'll perform at the Puppets Up festival, too...

    The MuppetCast - Show #120 - Get Off The Phone!

    Hi everyone! I meant to post something in here about last week's show and title it "The Wizard of Oz In About 3 Minutes". But things are picking up at work and I didn't get time. So we'll just make this post cover both shows 119 and 120. First, wasn't Leslie AWESOME last week! I knew she was...

    The MuppetCast - Show #116 - Wedding Musicians

    I had a lot of fun putting this episode together! I always like coming back and looking at the Jim Henson Hour episodes, and this one had some great moments. Granted, I skipped over a few parts of it, but only because it wasn't possible to translate what was going on visually into an audio...

    The MuppetCast - Show #112 - Caroll Spinney

    This is a big one! My special guest for this episode is none other than Caroll Spinney, the performer of Sesame Street characters Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. I was delighted to be able to talk with him, and although you can't fit a lifetime's worth of stories into a one-hour podcast, we...

    The MuppetCast - Show #110 - Puppeteers of America

    Now before you go thinking I didn't do a "tribute" to Jim this year, listen to the first 30 minutes of the episode. It's completely devoted to listener email and full of listener Muppet musings. I don't think I could have asked for better responses. I defy you not to well up when listening to...

    The MuppetCast - Show #109 - Mother's Day

    Hi everyone! This week's show features a revisited interview I did last year with Richard Hunt's mother, Jane Hunt. This was a great interview talking not just about Jane's take on motherhood, but also has some great "Richard stories" that you might have missed if you haven't heard the...

    The MuppetCast - Show #106 - The Core of Commune

    Hi-ho! This week I've invited another one of those podcaster types on the show. You know how sketchy they can be. :shifty: Hehe...his name is Shane Roberts and he hosts one of the more unique Disney podcasts out there, called Communicore Online. I really like Shane's work because a) it's short...
