The MuppetCast is back! And we’re in plenty of good company this week. Our featured guest is Whitney Grace, who tells us all about the various comic strip and comic book projects the Muppets have appeared in over the years. Jeni Rizio stops in to talk about the recently lauched kickstarter campaign to help the filmmakers of “I Am Big Bird”, the new documentary film about the life of Caroll Spinney. And Shane Roberts from Communicore Online even makes an appearance as we chat about our upcoming Disney trip, which we want YOU to be a part of!

What should Muppet fans be called? Do we need a special name, like Trekkies, Bronies, etc? Or are we just the Muppet fans? You decide in this week’s listener feedback.

Jeni Rizio is the owner & operator of the official Caroll Spinney fansite, and is also an ambassador for the kickstarter campaign to keep the film “I Am Big Bird” in green-light status. You can help by contributing any amount you wish, and just think, YOU will have personally been a part of the filmmaking process! Click here to contribute.

Shane Roberts is a good friend of mine, and the host of the bi-weekly Communicore Online podcast. This week we talk about an upcoming speicial trip we have planned to go to Walt Disney World and celebrate Epcot’s 30th anniversary. You can come with us, in fact we have a special discounted room rate and are throwing a big party that we want you to attend with us! Call our buddy Ramon at Glass Slipper Concierge to book your trip. You have to do it by the end of July 2012, so get moving!
