Jeff Pirtle, special guest. This is the seventeenth ‘Prop Talk’ podcast by the Original Prop Blog. Mr. Jeff Pirtle is Director, Archives and Collections, NBCUniversal. NBCUniversal is celebrating their Centennial, and involved in a number of projects that give people glimpses of never-before-seen props, images and more from the NCBUniversal collection. Jeff Pirtle has been working on pulling key items to share on Universal’s Centennial Tumblr as well as for the Centennial celebration overall.

Mr. Pirtle recently took the time to talk with me for the latest Prop Talk podcast interview for the Original Prop Blog and its audience.

This article hosts the next in a regular ongoing series of full-length audio podcasts featuring one on one interviews with interesting people who participate in and/or affect the hobby of collecting and preserving original movie and television props, costumes, and other assets.
