If you didn't know already, we are big Disney fans. We are also big into the audio animatronics that populate many of the rides at Disney. The Haunted Mansion, is a classic and wondrous place and we never tire of talking about it. From the classic and new audio animatronics to the simply amazing VO by the great Paul Frees, please enjoy our chat about The Haunted Mansion, with "ghoulish delight"!

50. Lucky Yates

50th EPISODE! 

And boy howdy, its a good'un!

The boys are back (finally) and have an awesome chat with the one and only Lucky Yates! If you don't know the name, you most assuredly know the VOICE! Lucky is the voice behind Dr. Krieger on the hit animated show Archer on FX, but that's not the only reason we wanted to chat with him! (even though that would be enough!) He is also a very accomplished and talented puppeteer!

The boys and Lucky talk all about finding his puppet love, his affiliation with The Center For Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, as well as all the other awesome projects he has been and is still involved with!  We couldn't ask for a better guest to mark our 50th EPISODE!

51. Monkey Boys


Dan & Nate drove out to the Philadelphia, PA  area to visit the awesome shop of the even more awesome Monkey Boys! Marc Petrosino & Michael Latini were kind enough to take time out of their crazy busy schedule of designing and building puppets, creatures, props, practical effects and more, to sit down with D & N and give them a tour of their shop!

They talk about how the company was formed, some of their big projects, a very well known and naughty plant, Jedis and dumplings! Mmmmmm....dumplings.
