Informative Disney

Started while you guys were on episode 136. Stopped listening and went back to the beginning. So now I’m at 136 and really looking forward to catching y’all. Enjoy hearing how you give credit to both, Walt and Roy, for starting a company that brings so much happiness into our lives.

Long, unnecessary intros and quizes

I enjoy hearing Michael’s history lessons, but listening to Craig drone on about how hard he works and other off-topic subjects gets really old. Get over yourself. The show is long enough without that nonsense. Speaking of which, I usually turn it off once the “this week in Disney history” quiz starts. It’s just another excuse for Craig to go off on long-winded tangents.

Back to say Craig is a pompous bore.

Good information but not delivered well

Craig sounds bored and Michael sounds like he’s straight up just reading portions of The Disneyland Story book or one of the Walt biographies. I’d rather just listen to audible for a more animated delivery of the exact same(verbatim) material. Michael’s tone also comes off very dismissive and condescending towards Craig or other guests.
