Galloping Gumbo!



Only a few days away from the premiere of Chapter 3 of our podcast! This one is going to be awesome! Hope you will tune in Sept 1st
 
I had a sort of magical thing happen yesterday I wanted to share with you! I am currently writing Season 2 of the podcast. One of the episodes features a memory of growing up learning to cook with the Galloping Gourmet, Graham Kerr. Just about the best chef ever and really taught me everything I ever knew about cooking!
Best Chef Ever!
Best Chef Ever!

Now I know what you are thinking. . . What does the Galloping Gourmet have to do with this bizarre and crazy podcast? You have to tune in for Season 2 to find out! When does Season 2 start? Looks like March!

 
So as I am writing I started to wonder how he was doing. I ended up sending him an email and then later I got a phone call from him! I was truly honored to speak with him and we had a great conversation. More importantly, I got to finally thank him for helping me learn to cook. He was touched to be a part of the memory and the podcast. A wonderful man. He has a new book out and if you love him or remember him – definitely go check it out!
I love how this project has made these connections!
 
I am thrilled to be able to create this project for you. I hope you enjoy the wild ride!
 
Mysteriously Yours!

Gumbo FAQ



Hi There!

Thank you to everyone who has become a listener to my podcast “A Mysterious Gumbo!” It really means a lot to me that you are supporting this new and very exciting artistic endeavor of mine. I am kind of blown away by the interest and comments I have been receiving since the first chapter launched the first week of August! I can’t believe we are ready to launch Chapter Two next Thursday.

I thought I might answer a few of the frequently asked questions I have been getting about the project here, if you are interested. The big question is “How many chapters is Season One?” Season One is called “The Sinister Muck” and is 16 chapters long. Every month we will launch two chapters. We premiere new episodes on the first and third Thursday of the month. That will take us through to the beginning of March 2017.

Which brings us to the next big question I get. “What happens after Season One?” Great question! We start Season Two, which is also 16 chapters long. We will also be launching the novel for Season One at the start of Season Two. The novel has some really cool stuff, including illustrations, original recipes from the shows, and a lot of the background work used to create the podcast. I hope you will check it out!

Next question: “How many seasons you got planned so far?” So far, ten seasons. Not joking. Almost done writing all the scripts for Season Two and moving straight into Season Three. The awesome thing is I have been working on the concept for this project for many years so there is so much material I have wanted to cover. It’s a blast getting to put it all down on paper, record it, and produce it.

Last question: “Is it all one story or is each season a separate story?” The answer is yes. Seriously though, each season is a complete story (which I really love that format) but all of the seasons are contributing to a much larger story that is happening. It’s fun writing it like that.

Anyway, thank you again for being a part of this thing. I really hope you enjoy where it is going. If you like it – please give us a great review on iTunes or tell some of your best friends!

Thanks again for making this dream a reality!

Color Your Gumbo Experience!



One of the best things about working on this podcast was also getting to write the accompanying novel and illustrate many of the mysterious moments from “A Mysterious Gumbo, The Sinister Muck.”

I am very excited that I get to combine so many of the things I love in one project!

Here’s a sneak peek (below) at one of the illustrations from the upcoming book. I will have more details on the books as we release the next few chapters of the podcast.

The schedule is pretty simple and easy to remember: We will launch a new chapter each and every first and third Thursday of the month! If you subscribe, it automatically lets you know when the new shows appear. How cool is that?

Thanks again for listening! If you like it – please go rate and review it on iTunes. Also maybe tell a few friends about it.
