Jarrod Fairclough – Last week I was lucky enough to spend some time on Zoom chatting to my pal, Muppet performer Matt Vogel (Kermit the Frog, Big Bird, The Count, Floyd, Constantine, Uncle Deadly) about his early days in puppetry, the talent show that shook his confidence, Caroll Spinney, his meeting with Jerry Nelson to discuss his characters and the divisive comments on social media regarding Matt’s role as Kermit.
We also chat about Matt’s podcast Below The Frame, in which he interviews his fellow performers and production staff about their careers. It also showcases the stories and music of Jerry Nelson. You can find Below The Frame wherever you get your podcasts.
If you’d prefer to listen to the interview via a podcast medium, it will be made available as a bonus episode of my podcast Good For A Change in a couple of weeks – I’ll be sure to let you know it’s there (but why not go subscribe early?)
