Episode #263 - Storm preparation at Disney World

Overview: Today, I look at emergency preparedness at the Orlando Theme Park, and how ready Disney World was for Hurricane Matthew.  I think overall it was well handled, but there are a few tweaks they could make in the future.  

Notes: Global Climate Change seems to be bringing more - and bigger - storms along the coast of Florida, so Disney World has to have good plans in place to be ready.  And that's why they started an Emergency Operations Center to run 24/7.  If you want to know more about Disney's Ham Radio Club, check out

Episodes #261 & #262 - Epcot's France pavillion

Overview: Today's podcast is a tribute to the France pavilion. I take a thorough look at the design, layout, theming, and talk about the infamous move that is shown: Impressions de France. Then, I spend some time talking about shopping and dining. Its another of Epcot's opening-day pavilions, so take a visit to Paris with me.  

Notes: The France Pavilion represents what we think of as the romantic city of Paris in the Springtime.  Its a wonderful tribute to the city of Lights, with its architecture and the Eiffel Tower.
