Great Muppet Appearances
You had such a great response to last week's episode on The Muppet Show, that we decided to extend the Muppet celebration. Yeeeeaaaaaaaaayyy!! Richard dug deep and found clips of the Muppets and Jim Henson as guests on other shows like The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Joan Rivers Show, Arsenio Hall and lots more. We have to warn you, some topics and language are more risque than we’ve had on the show before. These are late night talk shows!

Skylistening Through Joyland
If I were to sum up this wonderful poscast none word it would be, "joyful."
Hosts Sarah and Richard seem to have a mandate to keep each exciting new episode tinged with a sense of joy and fun. You can hear it in their constant enthusaism, upbeat voices and even their unigue blend of humour, which is a natural outpouring of the fact that they are partners as well as co-podcasters.
Their Star Wars reporting is as thorough as one could want, with al the news out there these days, and they get a lot of interesting guests. What I really appreciated was that their tastes seemes to branch from Star Wars into very like minded franchises. For example, I love Guardians of the Galaxy, it reminded me of the orginal Star Wars in that it was fresh and unexpected. So when they do episoded like ther recent review of Guadrdians Vol. 2, I'm there!
I particulary loved a recent episode with Star Wars animated TV voice actor James Arnold Taylor, the conversation there was inpiring and movtivating. It motivated me to keep working towards my dreams!
There is also a level of "radio show" professionalism that I very much appreciate, from cool little sound interludes to the shows varied music composed by Rob Dehlinger, as a musician myself, I really appreciate the attention to this element.
This is a rare podcast that truly elevates the genre, with a sense of joy that remains true to the uplifting essence of the material they are covering.
