But we have to remember to keep the discussion geared ONLY towards what is directly related to the Star Tours attraction and Disney, or else we're going to end up with a 3-4 hour segment that really isn't all that relevant to what it supposed to be a Disney podcast."

I may not be the biggest Star Wars geek out there, but I am certainly a big fan of all six movies and consider myself fairly knowledgeable about them. I admire the restraint, but I kind of wish the segment had gone on a bit longer and maybe gone into a bit more detail that only a true Star Wars/Disney nut would appreciate.
But while I'm on the topic of these types of segments, I want to also thank Lou and Jeff after the fact for the piece they did a few weeks ago on Casey's Corner and it's ties to the Ernest Thayer poem, 'Casey at the Bat'. The 'Corner' is one of my favorite places to grab a quick hot dog and a Coke while awaiting a parade or show, and I love the theming of the restaurant as well as the Cast Member's costuming. The poem is also a favorite of mine, which I fondly can't recall hearing without it bringing to mind the Disney cartoon rendition.
I recall way back in show #17, when Lou and Jeff, in celebration of Goofy's 75th birthday, did a segment on Goofy's history in Disney animation and his appearances in the parks, and I was surprised that there wasn't really any mention (that I can recall) of the various sports shorts he could be seen appearing in at the back of Casey's Corner by the bleachers. I remember thinking as I listened to that show that maybe they had held off on going too in-depth into Casey's at the time because perhaps Lou had it in the back of his mind to do a separate show segment altogether on Casey's Corner someday in the future. I'm just glad to see it finally had it's moment, and it was a segment I very much enjoyed. Thanks Lou and Jeff! Keep up the great work!
