Great Theme Park (and skiing) Podcast

I really enjoy listening to the Parkscope guys and their creative podcasts, from varying hosts, topics and locations (sometimes even recording while on long road trips). As someone who loves to travel to theme parks and ski areas worldwide, I especially appreciate Alan's international trip reports and Alex's ski trip reports (this is the only podcast I know of that includes ski trip reports - a huge bonus in my book!). Keep up the good work guys!

Theme parks for the cool kids

Consistently great discussion about Universal, Disney, AND regional parks. These guys are always interesting and always have great guests. Thanks for being so steadfast, Parkscope!

Super negative

I started listening based on a recommendation for Disney podcasts. My impression is that the hosts are negative and primarily use this as their outlet for Disney grievances and complaints.
