Show #146 – January 24, 2010

In Podcast by Steve Swanson4 Comments

This is the first of my two-part coverage of Steve Whitmire‘s special appearance at the Center for Puppetry Arts. His lecture/workshop event was titled “The Sentient Puppet”. It was an unforgettable opportunity not only to listen to Mr. Whitmire’s insights on what gives a puppet real life, but also for workshop participants to puppeteer right alongside him, benefiting from his valuable instruction.

Stay tuned next week for my exclusive in-person interview with Mr. Whitmire! We cover a lot of ground, but still wanted to get to much more. We decided to call this Part 1 of an ongoing conversation. And yes, we discuss America’s Got Talent.

The MuppetCast is sponsored by our friends at Bell, Book & Comic. Life should be more Fun!

Thanks to everyone who appeared in this episode and gave their reactions to the Center and the weekend events. These folks include Steve and Liz Vitale, Jamie Hitchcock, Wes, Levi, Garrett Otto, and Keven Miller (who flew in from Seattle, WA just for this event!).
