    Hi friends.

    Just passing out an invitation to check out my new podcast called Under The Puppet. Since the cancellation of the Henson.com podcast years ago, I've always wanted to create a puppetry podcast that focused on the art of puppetry. Each episode I interview puppeteers about the art and business of puppetry. First interview is with Tyler Bunch. Second interview, with Drew Massey, will be out April 1st. If you'd like to check it out you can do so here:

    Under the Puppet interview for September features an interview with Allan Trautman who has worked with The Muppets, Dinosaurs, The Jim Henson Company and more. He is the lead puppeteer trainer for JHC so there is some good stuff in this one. Let me know what you think!

    This month on Under the Puppet, and interview with Dan Milano, creator of Greg the Bunny and Warren the Ape. Dan tells great stories of how Jim Henson influenced him and has one of the best interpretations of the ending of the The Muppet Movie that I've ever heard. Definitely worth a listen.

    Happy New year! Just popping in to let you know about the recent guests I've had on Under the Puppet.

    Kevin Carlson (Pee Wee's Playhouse, Timmy The Tooth, The Muppets) - has a great story about being asked by Frank Oz to fill in for Dave Goelz on a Muppet TV Special that is worth hearing

    Bruce Lanoil (The Muppets, Dinosaurs, Jim Henson Company) - has some fun stories from the first season of Dinosaurs and working on the Muppets Take The Bowl shows.

    And the most recent episode is with Abby Cadabby herself, Leslie Carrara-Rudolph! We talk about her working on Muppets Tonight, Sesame Street and her own outreach work with kids.

    These episodes and all past episodes can be heard over at http://www.UnderThePuppet.com
