LET’S. GET. FELT.

Prepare your earholes for an aural odyssey as Dan and Nate host their way through puppets, muppets, and just about any other uppet you could imagine!

Learn about puppeteering and puppet creation from seasoned pros, and listen in as Dansandwich and Natedog deftly explore the puppet-adjacent (for example, stop-motion animation and their guest’s puppet-Sega-genesis).

With hours of two-on-one (or more) interviews of professionals working in their field, it’s a wonder more people aren’t jumping on the puppet-wagon! Making puppets out of their socks, stockpiling socks for sock puppets, stocking up on sock stock, making sock stock skyrocket!

This ain’t your grandma’s puppetry podcast. While puppet talk makes up a whopping 60% of the show, our hosts are also a treasure trove of knowledge in most things involving film, theatre, geek culture, and 80s and 90s nostalgia.

So if you’ve ever wondered “how they made that thing do that thing in that show,” or are curious what a “Frank the Horse” is, you’ll love getting felt up. (And you’d probably like this podcast too).

Advisory: may contain dick jokes.

Underwhelming

I listened the whole time someone was moving silver ware around putting stuff in the microwave. Very distracting. Also not consistent episodes

Fun time fun haver ,
