Episode 7: Jeff “Swampy” Marsh

We were thrilled to sit down with Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, Creator/Executive Producer of Disney Channel’s hit animated series “Phineas and Ferb” and the upcoming animated series “Mikey Murphy’s Law”, for an in-depth and very entertaining discussion about the five films that have most influenced him.  We also discussed his volunteer work with the amazing charity organization A Walk on Water, which provides water therapy through guided surf instruction to special needs kids and their siblings.

Join us for this very fun episode, as we talk about the Robert Preston appreciation society, how Steve McQueen influenced “Phineas and Ferb”, lying your way into promotions, and never underestimating your audience.
