|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
The Neighborhood Archive Podcast
After dealing with some frustrating issues with iTunes, all Neighborhood Archive podcasts are housed here on the site. There are two ways for you listen to current and past episodes of the Neighborhood Archive Podcast.
Dr. Junlei Li of the Fred Rogers Center joins Aaron and Tim for a discussion about WWFRD (What Would Fred Rogers Do?), how the Neighborhood helps families to talk about social issues, and Fred Rogers' "steely resolve."
Tim visits with David Smith who worked on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood in the position of Assistant Art Director throughout the early-mid 1970s.
Tim and Aaron are joined by Danny LaBrecque -- creator and host of Treehouse with Danny LaBrecque. Very much behind Danny and his efforts to "bring a human voice back to children's media," we briefly chat about his current Kickstarter campaign seeking to bring Treehouse to a larger audience.
Tim and Aaron are joined by long-time Neighborhood Archive friend Guy Hutchinson for a fun-filled and inquisitive conversation about cross-over occurrences between Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and Sesame Street as well as Guy's upcoming book Sesame Place -- a look back at the 35 year history of Pennsylvania's Sesame Street theme park.
Tim is joined by talented puppeteer and one-time resident of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Bob Brown. In this light-hearted and fun interview, Mr. Brown shares memories of his time on the Neighborhood and talks about his career in puppetry.
The Neighborhood Archive podcast comes back from a year-and-a-half hiatus to welcome Aaron as the new co-host for a quick discussion of the recently published book Peaceful Neighbor: Discovering the Countercultural Mister Rogers.

Tim talks with the talented Holly Yarbrough about her musical background, her passion for helping others, and her tribute and dedication to Mister Rogers through Mister Rogers Swings!.

Tim talks about some major changes to the Neighborhood Archive including the relocation of the blog and the addition of a message board.
Tim takes a look at the 1950s LP Tomorrow on the Children's Corner and in the process refers to many tracks by inaccurate names.
Eric and Tim break down the King Friday XIII Celebrates LP from the late 1960's. After recording our hour-long conversation, Tim attempted to cut it down to a more listenable half-hour. Unfortunately, in doing so, the finished product seems a bit choppy at times. Apologies for that as well as the continuous pen-clicking.
In this first episode, Tim spends some time talking with frequent Neighborhood Archive contributor Eric as they discuss the history of the blog, childhood memories of Mister Rogers, and episodes of the Neighborhood program they would like to see made available on Amazon.
