A treat for lovers of stories

Only just discovered this podcast and binged it over a few weeks. The time and effort that has gone into researching each story is incredible. The most recent bambi episodes hit me to my core! For a movie I can’t really remember much of the story line, I was drawn in and found myself so in love with the story and movie. Thank you for this gift of a podcast.

Outstanding podcast

Paul is an incredible researcher, the episodes he has created are deep and rich. I am so glad to have stumbled across this one night whilst unable to sleep. I would also like to say, that his ‘DSO is back’ episode from the beginning of 2018 was wonderfully honest and it felt very humbling to have a glimpse of Paul’s life shared as an anonymous audience member. I would recommend listening to it before turning away and thinking this podcast has fizzled out.

I love this podcast!

This has to be my favourite podcast of all time. Paul researches his movies and the origins behind the movies so thoroughly. You get to find out so much interesting history and tidbits making you love each Disney movie more! It’s the right amount of passion, education and fun. Thanks for putting so much hard work into each podcast Paul!
