Episode #107 - a trip report and a good cause

I've been doing this for a while now, and one thing that's missing is a bit of a social conscience.  I figure we all should do some good for others, and that's what I aim to do.

Now I know this is not my greatest work.  Believe me when I say I had a lot of trouble deciding on an approach for this podcast.  But I believe that what it lacks in overall production quality is offset by its purpose.

You see, I have a friend who has a child diagnosed with autism.  He wanted to take a trip to Disney, and relying on everything I know about Disney I pronounced "I believe Disney will take great care with you, and you'll have a great time!"

But it turns out that he had other information from people in his circle: Disney is NOT (gasp!) that great at making accommodations for children with autism and (double gasp!) Universal does it better.

Say it isn't so!

So, he decided to bring his other child down to investigate and visit both and determine what his son can handle and how both parks deal with issues.

And so I took him around the Magic Kingdom, and we had a ball.

But I became more acutely aware of what he was saying...and decided that my social conscience would be directed at raising awareness and supporting an organization called "Autism Speaks" can find a link to the site on this page, and on

What I would like to do over time is to hilight the cause from time to time, and if anyone has some experience in this area, please feel free to comment or send me an email.

I'm not sure where I want to go with this, exactly, but I just feel like it should go *somewhere*.

Episode #106 - CarsLand and DisneyLand

Today's podcast pays homage to the park that started it all. Curt was in DisneyLand shortly after CarsLand opened, and he's here to tell us all about it. Yeah, I know, the podcast runs a little long, but it covers a lot of ground and he gives his impressions as a DisneyWorld guy.
