The LSAT is not as fun as the Haunted Mansion, but just as scary.
Not far from the end... a brilliant segment so far.
Loved the interview, downloaded the Vault of Walt to my Kindle before I was even finished listening to the interview. Maybe I'll start downloading Lou's Book of the Month club.
I must be just missing something but I never can find the show notes??? I would love to download the full interview with Jim Korkis but cannot seem to find the link.
Can you direct me?
Great show Lou - thank you! Have just downloaded Jim's book on to my Kindle - it's next on my list of things to read.

I loved the opening part, where it appears to be a small clip of Richard Sherman playing It's A Small World. Is that from your D23 trip! I wish I could have been there to see him play!

Lou, thank you so much for providing the full interview. Jim Korkis has led such an amazing life and has such a personal vault of Disney knowledge that it is such a pleasure and amazement to listen to the two of you talk.
Great interview, Lou! Mr. Korkis is both enlightening and hilarious, and I bet his book is fascinating.
Loved the interview and just ordered the book! Can't wait to get it...
Is there a "downloadable" version of the "unedited" verison of the Jim Korkis interview? I just went to the show notes page and there is only a play button.
If anyone has a direct link (not iTunes) it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
