    Would Walt have a podcast?

    If Walt were alive today, do you think he would be podcasting? Walt always seemed to like letting the public know about what he was doing, and it seems as though a podcast would be the best way of letting Disney fans know what is up. So, do you think Walt would be releasing a weekly podcast detailing the latest and greatest plans for WDW, Disneyland, and the Disney Studios? Walt was always on the cutting edge of technology, so what do you think?

    I think he absolutely would have! He did love keeping the public informed and letting the public know the latest, so a weekly podcast would totally have been within the realm of possibility if he were alive today. And you better believe there would be A LEAST one regular television special every month! They used to always have TV specials highlighting the goings on in the Parks, I miss stuff like that so much!!

    I think Walt, a pioneer in the then new television medium, would today have a podcast, facebook, and twitter site to communicate with his guests and fans.

    I totally agree. He embraced all mediums that were available to reach out to the public and I'm certain he would have been on the leading edge.

    Lou undoubtedly would have had a weekly "FooDisney" segment!

    No doubt he was always out promoting the movies and parks and he always used whatever medium was available at the time.

    Re: Would Walt have a podcast?

    I don't think so. Walt Disney, if alive today, would be so powerful that he'd be using all types of media, but personally you'd probably only see him on TV, DVDs and maybe even movie theaters. He would allow official accounts on FB and Twitter but i doubt he would be on there personally. And i'm not sure he'd do podcasts himself. It's an elective medium that you have to hunt down and download yourself. Walt Disney pioneered the use of television as a promotional tool decades ago, one that easy to find and accessible.

    I'm not discounting podcasts and i do know that some big celebs do them, but ultimately i think it's a medium for novices, aspiring talents, and popular voices that are known for connecting on a ground level with fans. But those voices usually don't have countless theme parks, television networks and major corporate backing to get all that done

    I think if Walt was alive today, he probably would have a podcast, and would maybe be near his 500th episode.
