Episode #309 - Disney and Digital Media






Overview: I ran across a couple of articles about Disney and their work in the digital content world.  The acquisition of 21st century fox is the proverbial tip of the iceberg as Disney works to move into a whole new world. But I have a couple of other quick fun things to share,  too.

Notes:  Windows 10 rotating through images from Soarin' is kind of fun.  You can make it something you love - perhaps your favorite attractions(s) or areas at Walt Disney World.  Cool Runnings is about the 1988 Jamaican Bobsled team, and came out in 1990.


I mention gun control in passing during the podcast.  It fit in thematically with the story I was telling. And, since the recent school shooting was nearby, our daily ives were (and are) impacted, its relevant to me.  To be clear, I have a strong opinion, but I am not going to debate with any of you; its pointless.....instead I will let our youth take this on; they will be engaged in deciding their own future...as I said in the podcast, ignore them at your peril.

Episodes #307 & #308 - things YOU miss at Disney World





Overview: A few podcasts ago, Gary and I talked about our top ten attractions that we missed. I invited listeners to share what you missed - and I consolidated them here.  Its a sort of listener favorite missed attractions! 

Notes:  I have talked about a number of these attractions on previous podcasts.  I invite you to use the search at the top to look through the archive and find ones that you'd like to hear more about.

And of course, my thanks to all of you that took the time to respond and share the attractions you miss.

Episode #306 - A trip to the World





Overview: Early this month, I took a trip up to Disney with the family.  The temps dipped near freezing, but we were undeterred and had a great time, visiting the parks, meeting princesses, and riding attractions.  I've got stories to tell, and suggest how you can make the most of your vacation. 




Notes:  That's the view from the monorail.  Each time I go, I try and find at least one thing I've never done before - or perhaps haven't done in a long time.  It seems like this list can never be exhausted - because there is so much to do, and new things are being added all the time.  Plus, there are some surprises that lurk around many corners.

Episode #305a - more thoughts about the Last Jedi




Overview: More thoughts (and spoilers) about Episode 8: the Last Jedi.  I watched a bunch of reviews, and they got me to thinking about the film.  So I wanted to share that... 


Notes:  There are a lot of varying views about the movie.  Just take a a peek at youtube, and you can find good, bad an indifferent reviews.  But there's no denying the popularity of the film; its already exceeded $60 billion in tickets sales.
