Best Podcast Ever!

This is my best source of Disney news and history. I love Jim and Len both and they are so easy to listen to. This podcast keeps me up to date and well informed on all the important news from Disney. I have learned so much about the history from Jim and the park info from Len! I look forward to the weekly episode and listen each week. Very well done!

Love it! I have a suggestion....

Great Podcast! Always look forward to the next episode!

The Monster Sound attraction (which I got to do as a kid) history got me jonesing for more MGM attraction history...so lets have a History of Superstar Television! Another attraction I got to do, my sister and I were Gilligan and the Skipper and my 80+ y/o grandma got on playing the gun-toting jealous wife on General Hospital (playing opposite a loose-English speaking bald Israeli gentleman...was hilarious).

You guys rock!
