    What does the occult, a talking tongue, and children's television all have in common? This week's guest, James Godwin!

He's has worked as a puppet builder and on programs such as The Book of Pooh, Big Big World, Chapelle's Show, Oobi, and many more.

    Puppet Tears, ep 041 — Puppet Pelts

    Have you ever heard of Antron Fleece? If you're a long-time audience member of Puppet Tears, you probably have... Well, this week our guest is Laurie Nickerson - the Dye Master behind Puppet Pelts - who's here to talk all things textiles as we do a deep-dive into Antr-errr-*NYLON* fleece. We'll discuss how Laurie and her mom came to lead the charge of ensuring puppeteers have the highest-quality materials to build their puppets, origins of the "Muppet fleece" associated with moving-mouth television puppets, and why builders shouldn't be afraid of fabric alternatives like polyester fleece. This is an important master class for anybody interested in making the best puppets possible. PLUS: find out who besides puppeteers are dependent on the coveted "magical, unicorn" 14oz nylon fleece!
