Episode 51: Occasional Disney Fans

Beyond the Berm returns today with Episode 51! Check out all the interestingness of our latest episode.

Matt begins by mentioning something he saw in Steve’s Twitter bio, “occasional Disney fan.” Steve clarifies that a bit to be “occasional Disney parks fan,” and the most recent contributor to that occasionalness is the ticket price increase that went into effect on both coasts this week. Is Disney pushing away some of its biggest fans by some of their recent actions in the last few years? Listen in and see if you agree.

Steve then brings up the recent announcement of a new DuckTales series coming to DisneyXD in 2017. Will it be good, or will they take too many liberties with it? Here’s hoping that they leave most of the original DuckTalesness intact.

From there, we move into a discussion of the season finale of Agent Carter, followed by our thoughts about the second half of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season which starts next week. We had some mixed but overall positive feelings about Agent Carter, and we have high hopes for Agent Coulson and his crew. And all of that leads into a discussion of the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, too. Will the Marvelness continue to build?

So how many times have we added -ness to a word to make a new word? That’s interesting! Be sure to listen in to our adventures of Episode 51!

Follow-up for Episode 2

If you have listened to Episode 2 of Beyond the Berm, here are some follow-up links to some of the things that we mentioned. And if you haven’t listened to Episode 2, we will wait here while you do. Go ahead.

All done? Okay, on with the follow-up!

For starters, we mentioned several books that we may or may not have had a part of. Here is the list with links, if you would like to check them out:

We discussed some of the old Disney movies, but in particular we talked about The Absent Minded Professor. If you haven’t seen it, you might want to check it out.

We also discussed DuckTales, because Matt was wearing his DuckTales t-shirt (we’ll have to take his word for it, because this is an audio podcast). There are some DVD sets of that great show available.

And we also discussed two things that Matt has already posted follow-up stories about: Space Shuttle Endeavour and Tom Hanks as Uncle Walt.

Those are just some of the things we discussed – we can fit quite a bit in 37 minutes!

Watch for our next episode coming sometime soon!
