Great way to learn Disney history

I started listening about a couple of months ago when I saw it by chance. What I like about it is that the podcast is not focused just on Disney. There are some episodes in which he gives you a history (background information) of what is going on before the event in Disney history. This gives you a complete understanding how those events influenced Disney. Then he ties it all up at then end so that you have a full understanding. He also shares audio clips of his interviews with former cast members. I’m so excited to go through each episode and hear stories that I’ve never heard before. Sometimes I listen to 3-4 episodes in a row. Great podcast.

Good content but can’t handle the voice

Voice is way too dramatic and distracting. It’s like he’s trying to do a voice over audition.

The best!

If you’re a Disney history freak, this is the best podcast out there. Plain and simple. Todd’s voice is also like butter and will bring a smile to your ears.
