38. WDW Today Podcast


On New Years Day of this year, I kicked off this blog with an article about podcasting. I mentioned two specific podcasts that I considered my favorites in WDW Radio and Inside the Magic. Today I would like to add a third show to that short list. I am speaking of the WDW Today podcast.

The WDW Today podcast is one that typically airs new episodes three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  They also do a live call-in show once a month.  This podcast is a fun way to stay in touch with Walt Disney World on a regular basis.  Each show is only about 20 minutes long and can be enjoyed on your drive to work.  The show consists of a panel made up of a handful of Disney World experts.  They chat about interesting topics related to trip planning and they often answer listener questions submitted by emails.  They also come up with some offbeat ideas that are often humorous and always entertaining.
WDW Today is comprised of four main panelists as well as recurring guests.  They have quite a following and each of the panelists are well known in the Disney online community.  The host of the podcast is Matt Hochberg.  He is from my home state of CT and his passion for Disney had him relocate to Orlando a few years back. In addition to hosting WDW Today,  he runs several Walt Disney World websites including StudiosCentral.com.  Mike Newell does the production for the podcast and also runs an internet radio station called  MouseWorld Radio.  The third panelist is Mike Scopa who lives in New Hampshire and is a feature writer and blogger for AllEars.net. Last but not least is Len Testa. Len is the co-author of the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World as well as one of the masterminds behind touringplans.com.
One of the amazing things about WDW Today is its longevity.  This podcast was one of the first related to Walt Disney World and they have recorded over 875 shows!  You can download current as well as past shows at iTunes.com.  They are totally free and I look forward to each new show as they come out every couple of days.  I certainly recommend listening to WDW Today as it will keep you connected to the vacation kingdom.  You should also check out their website at WDWToday.com.

Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward.  See ya real soon!
