Some Good. Some Bad. Still Enjoyable

I've been listening since show 1. Overall, each show is getting better as R.B. finds his strides. You can tell that he enjoys doing the show and enjoys his topic. I do tell my friends to listen and I do not miss a show. There are just a few things that bug me enough to not give this 5 stars. Fortunately, they are easily fixable. What I like: • Not an annoying Fanboy- he loves Disney, but doesn't overdue his love for it in a freakish way. • Format consistency- he has a format that he pretty much sticks to. • Frequency- once a week is just right. The show would suffer from lack of material if it came out more than that. • Production- not bad for a podcast. Fairly clear. Some mishaps here and there, but these will get better since other issues have gotten better over the run. • Respectful- even when he disagrees with an opinion, he is still respectful of it. • Skipper Ben's Top 3 Lists- picks a topic, listeners write in, recap of the top 3. • WDW News- so many mistakes happen when someone tries to spread too thin. The Disney Co. is much too big to be covered by one site or podcast. Even the topic of "Disney Theme Parks" is much too big. R.B. touches on the other parks or corporate news every now and then, but stays focused on WDW. The only downside is that if you read Disney fan sites regularly, the news won’t be new. If you don’t, then this is a nice consolidated place to catch up. • Ride Throughs- the occasional ride through is nice. Having them in every show could be a bit much (for awhile, they were like that). • Restaurant Reviews- enjoyable brief segment. Everything seems to be "quite tasty" to R.B. ;-) What I don't care for: • Skipper Ben, The Former Cast Member- Ben did the Disney College Program a few times and that's all well and good. He sometimes comes across as being a bit pretentious in his "knowledge" because he was a Cast Member at one point in time. Being a Cast Member does not automatically make one an expert in everything about the WDW Resort. Ben comes across like this sometimes (as do other former Cast Members on Disney fan sites and message boards). Ok, you worked there. Now concentrate on your good segments like the Top 3. • Skipper Ben, The College Program Guru- Similar to the above, Ben presented himself as an expert on the Disney College Program a few times. He even went as far as saying he was a "recruiter" for the program. After listening to him and things he has said in various shows, I'm fairly certain that Ben was actually a student campus rep who assisted his school's recruiter in promoting the campus presentation. This could be a great addition to the show if the info provided was current and accurate and Ben acknowledged that he was just a former participant and helped his recruiter by hanging posters at his school. His heart is in the right place, though, so I can't fault him for that. • Figment on VMK- Segment great. Sound quality is awful. He can be long winded sometimes too. I’m sure that this will fix itself in time. If you like WDW, you will probably enjoy this show each week.

Inside The Magic

This Podcast creates the same excitement and joy one feels walking through the Magic Kingdom or any other Disney World park or resort. Ricky has broken the show into segments and each is as good as the next. His contributor, Skipper Ben (a former Cast Member and Jungle Cruise Skipper) is also excellent giving us many behind the scenes glimpses of what goes on off stage. Could not recommend more, totally addicting and the best part pure it is fun and you will learn more than you could imagine about WDW. Thanks Ricky, great job.

Excellent pocast for a weekly Disney fix

For all of you who are fans of the Disney parks, Ricky Brigante's weekly Disney news and views will satisfy your craving for a visit to Walt Disney World until your next actual trip to Lake Buena Vista. Ricky's enthusiasm for the Disney parks is evident in his weekly podcast. He does an excellent job in gathering Disney news and rumors to keep all Disney park fans up to date. I really enjoy the music played during the podcasts - it's amazing to hear all the Disney music and sounds that he has complied.
