I’ll never let go.. I’ll never let go.

Last night I had a dream that my phone buzzed in the middle of the night and when I checked it, there was an alert of a new Backside episode. I started playing it and I could actually hear your voices in my head. I was practically there with you bumping and running breakfast reservations. We were sneakily refilling our popcorn buckets from 2 christmases ago. We even figured out a way to score extra fast passes thru change party, EVEN THOUGH Disney isn’t currently giving out fast passes at all. It was fantastic! It was the happiest I’ve been in the last year and a half, and my son was born a year ago! But then I woke up and I realized it was just a dream. It’s over... Done.. It’s been more than a year and it’s time to let go... It’s time to just move on....
Screw that!!!
I can’t give up hope for more episodes! I can’t let go. I’ll never let go. I’ll never let go....

You guys are killin' me!

First and foremost, hope you and your families are safe and well. Secondly, I have to say; your podcast is greatly missed! You guys really need to come back to podcasting. We need your insightful take on everything WDW (especially during these crazy times). I would personally love to know what you guys think about all that is going on right now. Doesn't have to be every Tuesday (or any other weekly day of the week), just once in while. Kick the return to podcasting idea around. Your many fans (yes, we're still out here) would be very appreciative. We need ya! Think about it. Take care.

Still a joy

I was very touched to hear your 2020 reunion show (helpful, as always). Thank you, guys. It has been a privilege to listen.
