Disney Podcast Updates, September 13-20, 2009

Didn't I say I was getting caught up on these? BWAAHAHAHAHAAHAHA!!! Work and a new time-taker (Cub Scouts) have taken over for a bit, and I again got overwhelmed with trying to get this out. Never fear, however, because I found a more efficient way to do these updates, which should lead to more timely postings.

Anyways, here's another week's worth of shows. I should be able to get caught up in the coming days, so look for more podcast updates in the very near future. Oh, by the way…nobody found the hidden new podcast from the last show (they don't have an update in this one, so you'll have to go back to the previous update post). Also, we're starting to get into a LOT of D23's impossible to elaborate on each one, so I did the D23 shows with a shorter description. That should not be taken as a lower quality show...there are some really good D23 recaps out there!!! I did it mainly as a way to get these out a little quicker.

If you are interested in listening to any of these episodes, I have links to subscribe for most of these shows in my post HERE. Also, if you're willing, you can help these shows out by posting a review over on iTunes. The more they get, the higher up they appear on searches.

As always, please note that this again is not a comprehensive list of the Disney Podcasts that are out there. Mike Hamilton has created, which he periodically updates with new podcasts and removes dead casts. He also has the automated RSS (historical) feeds of the podcasts. This is more of a cross-section of what is currently being talked about…perhaps something may sound interesting, and you'll subscribe to listen to that topic.

Any and all comments are welcomed! Also, if you know of another podcast that fits here, let me know.
