Fantastic

Wonderful podcast companion to one of my favorite YouTube series. Love the interesting guests he brings on, they have fascinating stories to share.

I’ve found my people!

This pod covers all the nerdy little details and backstories that I’m super interested in, and I learn a lot from the interviews, which is great, because I sometimes feel like I’ve already read and seen every Disney thing there is out there.
