Jerks.

The way the speak is so clinical and boring. This is about Disney... why are they so unhappy and negative?! The Belgium guy is the worst. So nasty. This podcast just made me sad.

Unpredictable schedule

Edit: I’ve been listening to the Pressing Issues episodes and a recommendation—edit out the 20 seconds of silence at the beginning of the episode. It’s really confusing and so easy to fix.

I like the news format (although it is clear that is a YouTube recording with the references to visuals I obviously can’t see as a podcast listener). My issue is that I don’t understand what the schedule is for this podcast. Sometimes two or three episodes come out in a week. Sometimes there is nothing for two or three weeks. I feel like I hear a lot about how the guy who records the podcast has other things going on, but so do the hosts of other Disney podcasts who still manage to put out regular content. Good for news but not reliable.

As an aside, it seems like this guy hates his job 75% of the time. Fair enough, lots of people do, but you’ve made a living talking about Disney, something so many people can only dream of doing. Maybe lighten up a little?

no thanks !!! ,

Terrible show. Don’t waste your time.
