I love them all!

Jim and his other hosts are all wonderful. I look forward each week to get my news, and listen to stories of what is happening in Disney, animation, Marvel and Star Wars!

Top Tier Information

Len and Jim make a great team, a balance. Jim alone, not so good. Just one question, why does Jim signal his agreement to the thoughts of others by saying “no, no, no?” That is just so odd.

Love all the shows!

All the shows are informative and fun to listen to.

This is from Jim and Drew about the Alan Menken and Glenn Slater duo from the Annecy episode.

They also worked on Tangled, the songs in the Tangled series and the very underrated yet excellent Galavant and A Bronx Tale musical.
