Ken's Muppet interviews

With the new show "the muppets" currently running on ABC (new episode tomorrow,) it's a good time to take a look at Ken's Muppet interviews.

On the Ken P. D. Snydecast we have often heard of Ken's love of puppets, particularly Jim Henson's Muppets.
Over ten years ago Ken interviewed several very important members of the Muppet organization and luckily these wonderful interviews are still available on the web.

These text interviews are a great snapshot of the Henson group at that time and are a good showcase of Ken's chat skills before the days of podcasting.

Still Counting: An Interview with Muppeteer Jerry Nelson

Ratting Out: An Interview with Muppeteer Steve Whitmire

Gonzo Puppeterism: An Interview with Muppeteer Dave Goelz

Animateer Karen Prell: An Interview with Puppeteer, Animator and Writer

Ken also had a great interview with Kirk Thatcher last year:

I’m Ken Plume, and soon you’ll be listening to “A Bit Of A Chat” with me, Ken Plume.

In this episode, I have a chat with writer/director Kirk Thatcher about creatures, Muppets, Star Trek punks, Star Wars, 8×10s.
