Disney Podcast Updates, December 21-31, 2009

So I was at the tequila bar with Len...



2009 is in the books with podcast updates. As best as I could, I provided updates (and sometimes just show notes) for over 40 podcasts that are focused in some way to Disney. If my math serves me correctly, my first update was on May 1st, so, with the exception of the snafu in late November, that's 8 months of updates. I'm not going to count how many episodes are included, but there were "quite a few." As I did these, I started adding more labels and found that they were being picked up by searches, and people were following through to the home pages of the podcasts.

I know that this one isn't followed a whole lot, but every time I contemplate just stopping the updates, I see three or four new hits on the blog and departures to podcast links, and it tells me that, even though there are but a few regular readers, it still serves a purpose to the casual clicker-througher (whatever you call them). I also know that there are now others who provide similar services...Mike Hamilton's site has been up long before I started, and Shawn over at the Dis_Pod_Review started a couple of months after me and already has 3 times more followers than I do on Twitter), but I think we serve different audiences, and I don't think any of us are "competition" to each other. Mike has the comprehensive list with the RSS feeds, I've got the somewhat more in-depth reviews/updates (eventually...long delay) in the blogosphere, and Shawn does the shorter but more immediate updates in the Twitter Universe.

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. If you do start listening to a podcast as a result of what you've seen on here, please let the podcasters know!

As always, please note that this again is not a comprehensive list of the Disney Podcasts that are out there. As mentioned above, 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.

    • 12/25/09 – Episode 139, (Mush: Doofenshmirtz evil incorporated…who knew Perry could sing so well?!!)

Every year The Voices of Liberty do special Holiday performances inside The American Adventure pavilion in Epcot. The Voices of Liberty is a spectacular acapella choral group and to hear their live performances of some all-time Holiday favorites is a real treat.

    • 12/25/09 – Show 43, In 2008 I was in Disney World and captured some of the night time Christmas extras that the resort puts on display. For me these are some of the great times I reflect back on when I need an escape to the Parks. This year I was unable to join my friends attending the DPN World Holiday events but putting this help with managing the disappointment of missing the event. I hope this Episode will help those of us that wished we were in the parks during the holidays and helps those who have just been reflect on the great times they had. (Mush…this includes the "Let There be Peace on Earth" tag on Illuminations…it's hard not to have the eyes water up a bit watching that one!

Just read the description, and you'll be floored at what these guys got to do!) Keep the warmth and wonder of the Holiday Season going all year long with this very special episode. It all started when we met Disney Legend and Imagineer Bob Gurr earlier this year. Besides his many Disneyland creations, like the Monorail and Animatronic body for Mr. Lincoln, Mr.Gurr (or Bobby as we dare to call him) is also famous for his Monorail Martini. He had obviously enjoyed one just before meeting up with us, and foolishly invited us to his house. This is a rare treat for us and you to get the nickel tour of Bob's vast southern California estate, hear what Christmas with Walt Disney was like at WED Enterprises in the Fifties- even a festive cooking segment with The Galloping GURR-met!

    • 12/23/09 – Episode 99, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my friends and fans out there. It's been an insanely tough year to trudge through for me and I was happy to be able to escape my world completely in December of 09 by traveling to the other side of the Earth to experience more adventures in Japan. This year, I was lucky enough to experience the Christmas celebration at the Tokyo Disney Resort. It was an odd thing since Christmas, itself, in Japan is, pretty much, a Hallmark / retail holiday since their cultural and spiritual beliefs aren't grounded in this particular holiday as they are in the States. On this show, join myself, Superdry (Steve-san), and a mystery guest / friend of mine from Houston (Jason) who showed up to join us from Guam with one day's notice as we explore the parks and take in some of the Xmas festivities. This show has it all…classic meanderings, great ride thrus, and amazing special Christmas Parade audio. Highlights include: -Not so wonderful audio of Space Mt; -Tokyo's Haunted Mansion Holiday; -Tokyo Disneyland White Holiday Christmas Parade with commentary; -Monster's Inc. Ride and Go Seek; -Tokyo Disneyland Dreamlights Christmas Edition. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thanks for hanging in there with me as a challenging year had the podcast put on the back burner.

Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.

I am told the band will improve its selection of singers from the audience in the coming year. We close this week's show with four of my favorite holiday tunes. They may not be Disney, but they're special to me and hope they will be to you too. (Mush…awesome collection!!! That Heinz Hall of Fame audio is simply amazing!). Time: 2:16:10

They talk about some of the new experiences they've been through in this trip. Len's experience when he arrived…almost car-crashingly funny. It involves police cars, blind tent-building practice, invisible Tweets, wet and dry food not touching, Oprah, a new shopping mall at the Ft. Wilderness Comfort Stations (Mouskedude had the line of the show with "did you happen to find my other black sock?"…I'm so glad I was parked when I heard that!), flooding the boat in Mexico, Jaws, the curse of Newell in Mexico, "IN YOUR FACE, KID!", and 5,000,000,750,000 kids.

After a short tribute, Patrick gets into the rest of the show, and, being that this is one of the first ones of these that I've seen, I've got to tip my hat off to Patrick. He starts off with a visit from a ghost that needs a lozenge before donning a scarf (in his shorts) to visit Christmas lights. He then…well…there's no really good way to put this..he shows you how to build a bullet hole duck (I am 100% serious!). Of course, after hearing about the castration again in WDW Today 660, I think the duck might just welcome getting shot. I wonder how much Patrick charges to build a pinewood derby car. Time: 24:07
