Episode 178: Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2017 Review

The first part of my crazy 28 hour Orlando trip report. Join me for a review of my whirlwind culinary adventure at this year's Epcot Food & Wine Fest! Plus a brief update on the status of The Castle of the Castle, my YouTube channel, and, other things.

Episode 153: Hagrid the Half-Giant Took a Great Fall

In which Bart celebrates a successful Halloween, even if he did almost break a limb in the process, talks about his first foray into cosplay, takes the kids trick or treating, thinks up a "billion dollar idea" for a Thanksgiving decoration, and discusses breakfasts with Princesses.

Show Notes:

Come see me in Western Maryland on Saturday, Nov. 12th from 9:30 to Noon when I'm speaking at the 5th Annual Bully Prevention / Youth Empowerment rally at the Kick Masters Karate Studio in Frostburg, MD.

Episode 150: Frozen Rides, Fresh Burgers, & When Fallin' Feels Like Flyin'!

The 150th episode and final trip report from Walt Disney World in which I rode Frozen Ever After, wait to long for busses, have an incredible burger in Disney Springs, nearly die (not really but felt like it), and experience International Line Relations on Nemo & Friends.

Show Notes:

My last morning in World Showcase and POV Highlights of Frozen Ever After!

My cruise over to Disney Springs and lunch at D-Luxe before I head on home.

Episode 135: "Psyched"

A late-night episode (but at least it's not a MobileCast) in which Bart discusses Aussie comedian Jim Jefferies, why he's no longer a fan of Captain Morgan, Frozen Ever After at Epcot and "fanboy" anger, and two quick-service food items he can't wait to try when he gets to Walt Disney World in September, all while inexplicably using the term "psyched."

Episode 134: The Guardians of CommuniCore East

An accidental MobileCast to discuss the latest rumor to come out of Walt Disney World - specifically a possible major development at Epcot's Future World. Is Ellen going the way of the dinosaur to make room for Groot? Will we here the sound of a million fanboys' heads exploding? We'll find out soon enough.

Episode 123: Deep Purple (Farewell to the Prince)

In which Bart pays tribute to three lost celebrities this week; Doris Roberts, Chyna, and of course, Prince Rogers Nelson. Plus fast-casual Middle Eastern food, channeling Epcot, "setting the stage", and a quick strip to the EoS Library to discuss the literary works of Jimmy Buffett. 

Episode 121: Ridin' the Storms Out

A not-so Monday MobileCast in which Bart talks the weather, riding out a real life twister, and why Cars Land will always remind him of bad weather. Then after a short 8 hour break, returns to discuss drinking at the Hollywood Tower Hotel, imagines his own Hanna-Barbera super team, before witnessing an almost tragic-turned-not-so-bad situation.

Episode 98: On Wisconsin

In which freshly returned from a trip to America's Dairyland, Bart discusses road trips, the joys of being a hockey parent (expense aside), the Wisconsin Dells, Spotted Cow, and good times at Great Wolf Lodge.

Episode 97: Crystal's Half-Marathon Bonus Pod (for Wine & Diners!)

A surprise, slightly tipsy bonus pod because a few different listeners have said they enjoy listening while running. A couple are running in the Epcot Food & Wine "Wine and Dine Half" so I go over new menus at Disney and Universal for a special treat runners might enjoy treating themselves with! Sadly I don't succeed!!!
