Great podcast

I have been listening to the sweep spot podcast for years and I really love it. I love hearing about the history of the park and all of the guest interviews with former cast. It is truly a great podcast!

Hanging in the break room

This is a great podcast where you get a chance to be a fly on the wall in a cast member break room (not that there are any pests in the cleanest break room on earth). You get to hear former cast members shooting the breeze in a relaxed jovial way. Reminiscences on park years past as well as perspectives on current events are given with equal measure. Their intimate knowledge of the workings of the park, and what lies behind that mineral hall door, is always appreciated.

Favorite Disneyland Podcast!

As a former cast member, this podcast brings me back to the magic I felt while working at Disneyland. It’s like I’m sitting around with friends listening to fascinating “behind the scenes” stories of the happiest place on earth. Especially love the park history episodes (w Jim Korkis) and episodes where you chat with former cast members. Thanks so much, Ken and Len!
