History from an interesting perspective.

I am listening from the beginning because so many episodes cover the park history really well. I am only up to about 2015 in the show releases and haven’t listened to any of the newer shows yet.

The podcast hosts offer a really interesting perspective from a line of work that often goes unnoticed and under appreciated. When they are talking about their custodial work, I appreciate the value they placed on doing their job well. Relaying that message thru the podcast has helped me come to appreciate a line of work I never thought a lot about.

The show is also very well researched. The only part that gets occasionally annoying are Ken’s bad dad jokes. But even that is over lookable with the knowledge he brings.

One of the Top Disney Podcasts Out There

I’ve been a long-time listener who has never left a review for some strange reason. Ken & Lynn’s podcast does a tremendous job at providing a unique insight into all things Disney and particularly Disneyland. I appreciate their opinions and have enjoyed learning about their experiences as cast members. Their guests are also top notch and bring fascinating history and stories almost every single week. Perhaps most important, they put in the time and effort to churn out an episode each week that is substantial and allows me to get my Disney fix during my commute throughout the week. Keep up the great work, Ken & Lynn, your efforts are much appreciated!!!
