Jim Henson's birthday is this week, so we're releasing two episodes to celebrate his life and legacy. It all starts today with special guest Joe Hennes of ToughPigs.com. He'll discuss his thoughts on growing up with Muppets and getting some unexpected opportunities after taking over the Tough Pigs website.
You'll also hear Austin Pendleton (The Muppet Movie), Charles Grodin (The Great Muppet Caper) and Juliana Donald (The Muppets Take Manhattan) discuss their memories of Jim and working with the Muppets.
