Impressive Debut/Audition

I’m a longtime listener to “Connecting With Walt”. I have enjoyed the history and background that Michael and Craig have brought to life. That said, based on the last installment of the podcast I STRONGLY believe that Big Fat Panda would be a significant upgrade to the show. John blew my wife and I away in his debut episode…he’s a natural! I have no doubt that Craig is valuable to CWW in ways I’m not aware of but the eloquence Panda brings to the show is something that Craig either can’t do or hasn’t done yet. Sometimes Craig seems annoyed or put upon to be there. I’m sure it’s not the case but that’s what it sounds like. Panda sounds like there’s no place he’d rather be. That affect is contagious…or so it seems to me.

A Walkthrough of Disney History

Michael and Craig are a great team that are so interesting to listen to their perspectives. I appreciate them sharing the facts and having actual people associated with Disney throughout history on the show. For the episodes with a guest, I especially love Jim Korkis and all of his stories! I appreciate him only sharing stories that have been vetted by multiple sources.

Disneyland show

Love that this is back but you need to work on the volumes. Some come on very loud and screaming. Also they need to be on mute and not multi tasking. Can hear household chores going on on the background and it is very distracting and noisy. Lots of running water.
