A Fresh Take Wrapped in Mystery
Was very excited to listen to this podcast when it was announced on WDWNT. I wasn't quite sure what it was going to be like, and i'm still not entirely sure, but I know I enjoyed it. The descriptions given regarding what RFD is about aren't wrong, but like Mitch Hedberg's homemade Sprite, "There's more to it than that." Clearly a lot of great care and detail (check the show notes!) into producing this and I can't wait to see where it goes.
Must listen! High concept Disney love.
You'll probably see a lot of people struggling to come up with the right words for this podcast. However, you must hear it for yourself to understand.
It's part setlist, part radio play. You'll hear a curated list of songs around a theme, mixed with brief text passages. Some of it is clearly explained, while other parts walk the line of a make-believe world.
Ultimately, this is a whole new class of Disney podcast. It moves beyond the "two or three people with mics" formula to a work of art that can be listened to again and again.
