About the Podcast
The Once Upon a Time Podcast grew out of discussions Jeff and Colleen had on the couch while they watched Once Upon a Time. It reminded them of Lost, but also had interesting twists on classic Fairy Tales. Jeff began to write blog posts about the show and saw the numbers searching for the posts spike. Early on, the blog posts were on the first page of Google searching for Once Upon a Time. Jeff began the podcast around the time of “The Price of Gold”. Season 1 was incredible for the podcast;
We had a number of actors from OUAT call in and leave voicemails;
Mig Macario (Multiple times. We love Bashful),
Mig Macario (and 4 of the other dwarves from OUAT on the same call),
Faustino Dibauda (Multiple times. We always stay awake for Sleepy’s calls.),
Michael Coleman (but his phone reception broke up),
Eion Bailey (My all-time fav),
We also got a voicemail from Writer and Producer extraordinaire – Jane Espenson
We also got a audio message answering fan questions from Sneezy himself – Gabe Khouth
Also, every once in awhile we have a live show and one time, Bashful (Mig Macario) joined us in the chatroom. That was so cool!
In the Summer of 2012, we drove up to visit Steveston, B.C. (Where they film OUAT). We were the first fan podcast to visit where they film Storybrooke, met and chatted with a number of the cast, got a picture with Josh Dallas, said hi to Lana Parilla and was THE FIRST OUAT podcast to broadcast live from Steveston during filming (No Spoilers, but we saw Robert Carlyle ride by in the studio van. Colleen almost fainted.). It was an amazing trip, and one we will never forget.
We had lunch with Dopey (Jeffery Kaiser) and his great family at Disneyland.
We are looking forward to what the rest of 2013 and Season 3 holds for us. We hope you will join us.

Bob Crissman – OUAT Soundtrack Analysis/Reviewer
Bob Crissman’s love of music began all the way back in Middle School when he informed his Jazz Ensemble instructor that he was going to be a music teacher as a profession. Little did he know he was foretelling the future. Bob’s love for music continued through High School as members of the nationally awarded Webster High School Marching Band and the Webster High School Show Choir. After High School, Bob joined the Cadets of Bergen County for one summer, just before attending Roberts Wesleyan College. He graduated Roberts Wesleyan with a Bachelors of Science in Music Education. After two years of searching for jobs, Bob finally found a music education job in Terry, Montana where he led an award winning Concert Band and Pep Band along with a Concert Choir, Marching Band, Elementary Classes and was the Department Chair for the music department for three years. After a job search, Bob found a job back in New York State at the Binghamton City School District for the last ten years.
Bob has taught;
the award-winning Binghamton Marching Patriots,
classroom music (which is music theory and history for middle school students), and
helps to run the sound and light boards as the technical director for productions at East Middle School.
Bob not only has a history in music, but in podcasting as well. Bob started podcasting in 2005 as he hosted his own podcast known as “The Jedi Council Speaks”. He did several interviews on other shows and podcast dramas. In 2009, Bob left his previous podcast behind in order to pursue new adventures with the GalaxyCast Podcast, part of the 2 Guys Talking Network. If you don’t find Bob podcasting or listening to music, he’s usually very busy with his own family or is behind a Mandalorian or Tie Fighter Pilot helmet as part of the Star Wars costuming community.
