Perfect for Disney enthusiasts

This podcast is well researched and well written. It’s a meaty, deep dive into topics of interest for us Disney fans. Love it!

Good for History, biased on news

When discussing history, this is an intriguing and informative podcast. However, when presenting current news, this is a heavily biased, pixie dust snorting, papa Iger apologist podcast at its worst. If you want to get to the truth of any current Disney news source this is not the place to go. The presenter lacks the required perspective to give anything but the company line on any matter. Other reviews have mentioned his voice and it is true, the delivery is very difficult to get through. Who pronounces the word documentary that way? Out of a family of Disney fanatics, I am the only one to listen to this podcast because of the voice and delivery, but even I will only listen to pieces about Disney history, again because you will get nowhere near the truth of any news item listening here. The best I can give it is two stars.

Would love new content that is not about Herb ryman!
