  • Sam L from Atlanta writes in “This is a fan.  After hearing your comment about visiting the Henson Exhibit, I wanted to let you know that there is a Henson Museum.  It is located in Atlanta at the Center for Puppetry Arts.  (http://www.puppet.org/) The Center has 2 museums, one focusing on the Hensons and one focusing on Puppets around the World. (They include some figures from Laika stop-motion films. )   The Henson Museum has muppets from Sesame Street, from the Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock and many of their movies. It is not really large but it is a great collection. The Henson Foundation gave much of their collection to the Center so the rotate out different characters and displays. Thanks for the great show and please thank Chris, Jacob, Hoai-Tran, Ben and Brad.
  • Michelly writes in to say “Hi Peter.  I just wanted to say that for me you can keep talking about the Magic Castle. I will never get enough of your tales hehe. It’s not easy to get in and you did it! Listeners should chill and just appreciate it. I bet you’re a great magician  and that your magic will evolve a lot. Keep going! Also, I feel that the water cooler is in its best format ever. So glad that besides what you guys have been doing, we get to listen what you have been reading, watching, playing and so on. Finally, a shoutout to HT, my favorite person hihi, for reading and recommending Sharp Objects.   Best wishes from Brazil!”
  • Kolin from San Jose, CA writes in with a question: “With “Venom” and The Joker movie coming out soon, what other villains do you think deserve their own movie?”
