Episode 2 - Peter Linz / "Live Hands" / Not Puppets (Fran Brill)
Premiere: August 12, 2020

On this episode of Below the Frame, Matt sits down with Sesame Street and Disney Muppet Performer, Peter Linz (Walter, Ernie, Herry Monster, Link Hogthrob, Joe the Legal Weasel) and learns about his dedication to learning monitor technique, having an audition for Sesame Street in New York while needing to be at rehearsals in Atlanta! We also learn about "live hands" in puppetry (thanks to a special google-eyed guest), and Matt asks Fran Brill (Prairie Dawn) a question about NOT puppets!
