EPISODE: ROD THE PUPPET GUY
In this episode, you’ll enter into the world of imagination and fun.
The creativity gene definitely runs in my next guest’s DNA.
Known as Rod The Puppet Guy, Rod Butler, has been creating and performing live puppet shows for more than 40 years.
His many talents have been seen and heard via National radio programs, TV commercials, seminars, hospitals, churches, and schools.
Rod is also an author, creative writer, genuine friend and one of the kindest people you will ever meet. It’s my honor to have him as today’s guest.
Rod Butler grew up listening to the snapping keys of the typewriter as his father, John K. Butler wrote classic Westerns including My Pal Trigger and Silver Spurs starring Roy Rogers. Rod went on to fill books with poetry, stories, and cartoons, eventually writing for television, print, online, and radio. Rod's radio career includes creating and hosting the nationally syndicated Coconut Hut Radio Show, starring as Bongo Rod, Bob Dah Lobstah, Captain FlashLight, and other characters. He produced the animated series Boy + Dog for Daystar TV and Trinity Broadcasting Network and has written hundreds of educational scripts for Responsive Ed. Rod is also a children's minister and a professional puppeteer, on YouTube as Rod The Puppet Guy. He is married with three grown children and several trunk-loads of puppets.
