    Question Any other podcasts worth listening to?

    I just started listening to the show this past summer and plowed through all the episodes in about 3 months. I started over from the beginning again and I'm still learning a bunch and really enjoying it a lot, but I'm about 1/3 of the way through again.

    Are there any other WDW podcasts I should be listening to? One of the reasons I love Lou's show so much is that it doesn't sound like he's just recording it from his basement (I know, he used to), the sound quality and the energy he projects on to each episode is a big reason why I got hooked in. I'm not sure I could handle a very "pedestrian" sounding production.

    Re: Any other podcasts worth listening to?

    The other WDW based podcast that I listen to is Inside The Magic. Ricky Brigante presents a good padcast as well, although I still prefer WDWRadio. Whereas Lou takes a fairly positive approach to all things Disney, Ricky will occasionally lean the other direction on certain points/issues. It's by no means a negative podacst, but it does differ from WDWRadio.
    The other podacst I listen to is the Disneyland based Paul Barrie's A Window to the Magic podcast. This podcast most often features recorded audio from the parks, both past and present. An occasional interview or retrospective is inserted, however most of the shows are meant to be as if you're actually walking around with Paul or a guest host.
    There are many others out there as you know, however those are the three that I listen to.

    The only other one I listen to is WDW News Today. It can be a bit insular, with tons of inside jokes and whatnot, but it's still pretty good, IMO. Definitely a "warts-n-all" approach unlike Lou's more positive approach.

    Both shows are excellent, IMO.

    I haven't listened to Lou's podcast, actually. Not even once. I used to listen to WDW Today, but that one got real old real fast. The only one I listen to on a semi-regular basis is Inside the Magic. Though evn there, I listen once every month or two. I'll download the podcasts and store them on my iPod, but I haven't had a chance to catch up on them lately.

    I agree with ITM and WDW Today. I also listen to WDW Fan Boys and WDW News Today. Lous and Ricky Brigante both bring similar enthusiasm to the podcast. WDW today and WDW News are very similar i their inside jokes. I also listen to the one with Jim Hill of Jim Hill media. Usually because it's short and I can finish an episode while taking the kids to school.

    Lou's Top Ten and Wayback Machine shows are evergreen. Definitely worth checking out some time.

    I may have to, actually. I've been a member of this site long enough that I should probably listen to at least one or two of his offerings. At least now I have some suggestions to hunt down, rather than just selecting something at random.

    Re: Any other podcasts worth listening to?

    I listen to Lou, WDW Today, The Dis Unplugged, Betamouse and Wedway. I love them all. They are all good in different ways. The only issue is that I dont have Itunes on my laptop so I find myself having over 100 podcasts to listen to when I go to my real computer.

    Inside the Magic, WDW Today, and the now irregular Mouse Guest. Also Magical Definition with Nathan Rose who was Lou's co-host back when he did Mousetunes.

    I'd say my favorite Top Tens are Ways To Get Wet (mostly because of a rather humorous exchange between Lou and Tim concerning Splash Mountain later in the show. Though, Tim has to grow on you so maybe that's not the best place to start), and Sounds Of WDW.

    Best Wayback Machine being The Living Seas. That one was very fascinating to me.

    One of the more recent Disney Scene Investigations he did with Jim Korkis on the Partners statue is one of my all time favorites. That would be worth checking out.

    Give WEDway a listen. Both Matt and Nate the hosts do a really good job and those episodes tend to focus on the history side of Disney, which really fascinates me.

    Betamouse and WedWayRadio are both very good podcasts to try!
