My great, great, great grandfather forged his way from England to Halifax in 1700s. Now you diminish his memory. Or,... the memory might be tainted by the fact he lied when saying he would be a farmer, and opened up a tavern instead!! Great pod!

Fun and Funny Every Single Time!!!!

I listen to a number of podcasts and I look forward to this one more than any other. The chemistry between this trio is outstanding. Bond is the engine that keeps the train moving with his unique games and just hilarious banter, Andrada’s dry wit and quick one liners keep me chuckling through out, and Miriam’s scathing non-malicious remarks are second to none. Oh, and they chat about theme parks, so...YEA (Lil John voice). Much love and support from the Miranda, Jr. family in Miami, FL.

Fun & Entertaining!!!

The We Like Theme Parks Podcast is a fun and light hearted entertaining podcast. I love the trivia and game show episodes the most. Also, the intro and out-tro music is the best among all Disney inspired podcast.
