Disney Podcast Updates, December 1-10, 2009

Happy new year to everybody!!!

With the holidays behind us, I can say that I am the proud new owner of an iPod Nano 16G w/ voice memo capability, so I think things will be a little easier in getting these updated. First off, I can actually hold everything on the iPod instead of constantly shuffling shows off and on. Second, I can make real-time memos that I can play back while updating this - while it may not seem like much, you'd be surprised how quickly you forget what a show was about and what specific items I wanted to comment on.

I'm going to plow through December's shows in installments, again doing primarily just the show descriptions. I'll go back to my "old" format where I provide my own comments starting with the January updates.

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.
