Dan Heaton ,

Still One of The Best!

They don't do as many episodes as they once did, but Doug, Brent, and Robert still do amazing work on the Season Pass Podcast. The episodes with Eddie Sotto were a perfect example. The podcast archive includes so many cool, inspiring conversations with the legends of the industry. The Season Pass is an inspiration and required listening for anyone looking to work behind the scenes.

Park Designer ,

The best theme park industry podcast.

It’s the #1 themed entertainment industry podcast available. Very important production.

podcastic!!! ,

One of the best

I've been slowly working my way through all of the episodes. It is consistently one of my favorite theme park related podcasts. Such great interviews.
Thanks Doug!
