Excellent- but also read his books.

Great detail on the history. I also urge you to read his books, including the latest “The Life and Times of Ward Kimball- Maverick of Disney Animation”. My hope is that this latest series on John Hench is a precursor to another book

Amazing podcast

If you want a great listen and amazing detail about Disney this is a must listen. You can start listening thinking you will let it go for couple minutes then you just get lost in the episode.. it’s truly in this day and age a must listen.

Dis is history

This is the standard for Disney history, and not just of podcasts. I look forward to each new episode.
