    John Stamos (Part Two!!)

    John Stamos (Part Two!!)

    This week, we complete our second half of our glorious interview with actor, musician, Disney memorabilia owner and America's sweetheart John Stamos in a discussion about the legacy of Bob Saget, the incredible story of how his show Big Shot got renewed, Disney Parks history and so much more!
    PARENTS!! In this episode, we use the phrase "romantic bastard", make mention of death and loss, use the word "heroin" and reference Mickey Mouse (and how the character is played). As always, all profanity is bleeped out and all discussion of aforementioned subjects are done in a tasteful way, but wanted to give you a heads up!

Emmkitkat ,

Entertaining with great info!!

Carlye is my go to Disney expert! She clearly loves Disney as much as any of us, and isn’t afraid to give her honest opinions of when Disney is truly magical, and when it falls short. She is also hilarious and entertaining and finds the best stories and interviews to bring to the podcast. I love getting all the up to date info and news (amazing daily D23 expo shows!!) as well as deep dives into Disney details and lore, all in one place! I’ve been listening since the beginning and will listen for many years to come!!

Amelia Kate:) ,

Love this podcast!

One of my favorite Disney/ Universal podcasts! I absolutely love the “Hidden Mickey” episodes and finding celebrities that are just as obsessed with Disney as me! So fun!! 💕

BetterThanThis ,

So real, so fun!

Carlye provides the most real reviews and doesn’t sugar coat the stuff we all think and feel about Disney parks. And it’s all so fun and helpful!
