Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #342 for the week of November 10, 2013.

I just returned from our WDW Radio Cruise on the Disney Fantasy with so much to share from an amazing week at sea. This week, I have audio from my on-stage, sit down conversation with my special guest, author Ridley Pearson. But as a surprise to me, Ridley turns the tables and interviews me, and we both take questions from the audience as well. Stay tuned for additional coverage, videos, photos and more in the coming weeks on the show and on the WDW Radio blog and Facebook page.

I’ll have the answer to our last Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week, and pose a new challenge for your chance to win a Disney prize package.

Stay tuned as I’ll have some updates and announcements including information about our next WDW Radio Cruise and Summer 2014 event, as well as more of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

– Lou Mongello

    This was one of my favorite podcasts, Lou! Thanks for letting Ridley turn the table on you. 😀

  2. Kate says:

    Maybe it’s my computer, but I couldn’t hear a thing after the intro…if I turned my computer volume all the way up I could barely hear some voices but couldn’t make them out. Anyone else have this issue?

  3. Tammy says:

    I’m having the same problem! 🙁

  4. Cathy says:

    Yes me too, after the intro I can barely make out voices I was listening through my iPhone. It sounded like they were underwater. I haven’t tried it on my computer.

  5. Terry says:

    I’ve read ALL of the Kingdom Keepers books, and anxiously await the next. I follow Ridley on Twitter, to make sure I don’t miss anything! Same with the Peter and the Starcatchers series! Thanks, Lou, for giving us the heads up on these books long ago!

  6. Cindy Alford says:

    I turned on the podcast while transporting kiddos to swim practice, and they all LOVED the podcast. One kiddo stated their BFF was reading the Starcatchers and was impressed that Ridley was associated with it. All kiddos had read all the Kingdom Keeper books, and we took a poll with Ridley on future books based on current characters or on Disney sites… of course, half and half were the results just as Ridley has experienced… enjoyed learning about you, Lou. tons of questions answered I had always wondered. Love your show. Keep it up!

  7. Becky Manion says:

    Great show – unexpected turn of events eh Lou??

  8. Elaine says:

    I couldn’t hear it either 🙁

  9. Cathy says:

    When I got home I pluged my iPod into my sterio, it sounded fantastic. And also on the computer sounded fine. Great show!!!!

  10. Bill says:

    I really enjoyed getting to know more about your background and evolution, Lou, especially as I am an attorney myself (now an ALJ, fortunately). Is there a chance there will be a video of the interview?

  11. Tony McDaniel says:

    My family is new to our Disney addiction & my daughter has expressed interest in Ridley’s books. Bought her the first one for Christmas & I’m guessing I’ll end up reading it soon too!

  12. Elaine says:

    Home sick today. Decided to try to listen again four months later. So, while in bed, I had my laptop right by my ear on the pillow next to me and could hear it fine if I listened carefully. Loved it, Lou! Fantastic how you life has evolved. And loved hearing about Ridley’s history too.

  13. Chuck Zitta says:

    So true Ridley. I too learned about your Kingdom Keepers series via Lou’s podcasts and Box show as well! LOL!!!

    Yes, I have read the first 4 Kingdom Keepers books. Will be starting the 5th soon.

    I must say Lou, my exposure to Ridley and you over the last 18 months has inspired me to finally do what I should have started many years ago. Through persistence and a lot of hard work, my plan is to be in a position similar to the two of you. Possibly somewhere in between. But that’s all I’m going to mention for now. Don’t want to say too much at this time. Just going to create. Cause that’s what I do. If it works out people get as much enjoyment out of it as I do, all the better. I love Disney as well and want to share my passion.

    The DJ handbook? I’d like to see that too Beci!

    Wonderful episode. Truly enjoyed listening to Ridley interview you. Way to flip it Ridley!(lol!!!)

    Thanks again for another inspirational and entertaining show, Lou and Ridley!!!

    (Hope to meet both of you in the not so distant future)
