New Podcast Interview Series

I’ve recently begun a new interview series on my podcast, The GrantCast.  The series is me sitting down with my friends and getting to know them better and, since most of them are super creative people, talking to the about creativity.  The interviews come out every week on Saturday and so far, they’ve been a lot of fun.  Check out the latest interview below and, if you feel like it, subscribe to the show on iTunes or Stitcher or use this RSS Feed in your podcaster of choice – http://www.mrgrant.com/feed/podcast/

Subscribing to the show means you get new episodes the MOMENT they are released and that’s not a bad thing at all.

Bring Back Mystery Science Theatre 3000

I’m sure you’ve heard the news already but, in case you haven’t, Joel Hodgson has launched a Kickstarter in an attempt to make new episodes of Mystery Science Theatre 3000.  I would love to see this funded for two reasons, first I’m a hug fan of the show and, second, I would puppeteer on the show if it goes forward (you may recall last year I did some puppetry for the Turkey Day Marathon).  So check out BringBackMST3K.com and help us make a full season of 12 episodes!

The Ultimate Nerd-ament Season 3

The Ultimate Nerd-ament is back on Stan Lee’s World of Heroes! This time around, Stanley and JAX are attempting to capitalize on the Star Wars The Force Awakens fever by asking: Which Star Wars Character Would You Rather Be?! This first matchup is Han Solo vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi and the winner just might surprise you. So much fun producing this show with Russ Walko and our director David Marquez.

Season 2 of The Ultimate Nerd-ament wraps up!

The final episodes of Season 2 of The Ultimate Nerd-ament have wrapped up over at Stan Lee’s World of Heroes.  This season was a blast and we’re already in the planning stages for a third season.  If you’ve missed any episodes, catch up below!

 

Ultimate Nerd-ament Continues

The Ultimate Nerd-ament is marching right along over at Stan Lee’s World of Heroes!  The first round wrapped up today with Captain America versus Vision.  If you are behind on your viewing, you can catch up below.  And please feel free to tell a friend, or five about the show.  We think it’s a lot of fun!  Not only do I puppeteer on this series, I also co-created it and edit each episode.

Voiceover for new Mobile Wrestling Game

Good friend of mine has developed a brand new mobile wrestling game for iOS and Android. It’s called ’80s Mania Wrestling and it really captures the fun of 1980s wrestling in a fun, business simulator type game. He asked me to do voices for several of the wrestlers in the game and I also do the voiceover for the promo below. The game is FREE (does offer in-app purchases) and it’s great for all ages.

Country Bear Collector Show – New Podcast

I’ve done it!  I’ve created the most oddly specific Disney related podcast in the world!  It’s called the Country Bear Collector Show and it’s sole purpose is to explore the world of Country Bear Jamboree merchandise that has been released over the years.  I told you, oddly specific. The best comment about it that I’ve heard so far is, “It’s like the Antiques Roadshow but only with Country Bear Jamboree stuff.” Exactly.

Each episode is a, roughly, two minute video podcast where I take a look at different piece of Country Bear Jamboree merchandise.  The release schedule is every Friday and three episodes have been released so far.  You can subscribe on iTunes or on YouTube or visit www.CBJCollector.com every Friday for a new episode!

A must for any Disney fan! Check it out and let me know what you think!
