Don’t even talk to me until you’ve had your coffee. This week, Becca is taking her guests back to where it all began: Sam & Friends, the advertisements, and the variety show sketches of Jim Henson’s early puppetry career. Joining her on this trip down memory lane are two puppeteers and puppet builders: Stoph Scheer of The Creatures of Yes, Puppet Up!, and Muppets Mayhem; and Muppetwt Icon Richard Gomez. They’ll have to mind their business business as they answer questions about Sam’s mind, a new, new sound, and a whole mess of explosions. Play along at home and tell us how you do! PLUS: a whole lot of behind-the-scenes technical puppetry talk! Don’t miss it!
