DigitalWalkman ,

Good show. “Yes we know Pete is the boss”

Pete says he will not comment on the bill. But in the end he does. And he is against it. If you say that then say why. You have no kids to have the opinion of a parent. This is protected young kids from external influences that are not ready for their ears and eyes. That is it. Not more.

Disney Podcasts Enter Political Arena

Unfortunately, every Disney podcast has been forced to take a political side because Disney has decided to enter the fray. All parents want is to have a say in what their children are taught and at what age that is appropriate. If Disney thinks that is unreasonable, then I am through with Disney.

Meh

I understand advertising your business and patron and other items, but it takes up a large chunk of the show.

It falls into the usual trap of disney podcasts and bloggers complaining about “first world disney problems” and, whether intended or not, bragging about the number of trips/events they take/attend. Yes, it’s your “job”, however please remember your audience may not live “down the street” from the mouse and can get the latest merch, attend the first party, etc. and it comes off a bit elitist.

Sometimes you wonder, except for DCL, if they actually enjoy Disney; it sometimes feel like they more nostalgic than hopeful…and who needs any more negativity in the (Walt Disney) World.

I do enjoy the “opposing viewpoint” than what the “everything Disney does is great” crowd “cough cough Lou cough cough” but too many times it’s the usual “straw man argument” with no “opposing side” sitting around the table.

There are better WDW podcasts out there, so if you want to make it 3rd or 4th on your list, go for it,that would be my recommendation.
