Fun Universal Podcast

It's nice to have a podcast in my list for Universal. Feels like there are so many Disney centric ones that it's nice to find one that focuses on Universal. Rounds out my theme park podcast listening nicely.

Blows my mind

Covid has really ruined the show. The most recent show has Jim, a fully vaccinated person who is stated he has no plans of traveling to Universal in the near future, complaining that people can decide for themselves if they want to wear a mask on their vacation. He is shocked that the park wouldn’t require proof of vaccination. I LOVE Jim and all of his shows... but his logic is broken and he won’t get past this sticking point. No one is stopping him from doing what he wants, but he can’t stand people making up their own mind when they decide differently. Jim will admit that he isn’t the pinnacle of health due to his own habits and life choices, but when Universal changes the rules to follow new CDC guidelines we need to spend the first episode back in forever talking about how reckless Universal is being? I might check back in a year from now to see if things improve, but for now this is a show that doesn’t upload because “there isn’t news because the parks are closed” and when the parks finally reopen it just talks about how it is “too soon to reopen”.
