I have listened to this podcast weekly (sometimes multiple shows a week) for 10 years. This is my favorite podcast! The information is well researched, the hosts are all smart and funny and they cover a wide selection of Disney interests (book reviews, trip reports, food critiques, vip tours, merchandise - both new and vintage, club 33, special events, Disney Family Museum, visiting all of the Disney parks over the world, behind the scenes, convention reports, movie & show reviews, tiny tinsel, interviews with imagineers, artists, disney legends, Mousetalgia therapy, reminding me to manage my expectations … I could go on and on. You guys covered it all!!! If I could give it 10 stars I would. Thank you Mousetalgia for all of your hard work to make each episode so wonderful!
