Episode 58 (Part 1): The Inaugural Emily, Mike, Tanya and Kiva Disnerds Var

Trigger/Content Warning for strong language and discussion of violent racism. This episode is sadly but proudly dedicated to James Horner, who we didn't talk about nearly as much as we should have. It's a rather special one this time, as the Disnerds are joined by TWO - count'em - TWO guests! We are joined by both Tanya AND Kiva, and a lovely time's had by all. There's actually even a surprising amount of Disney talk in this episode, along with Don Bluth, Dreamworks, and...Kid 'n Play's...


Episode 57: It's a Disney Conspiracy!

Trigger/Content Warning for discussion of female infertility & related stigma! This time, Emily and Mike are joined by the lovely Pete, and get into some pretty serious stuff (Age of Ultron, Princess of North Sudan)...some pretty silly stuff (conspiracies and fan theories!)...and some heartwarming stuff (we got an email!).

Episode 56: Robin Hood Revisited (and More!) with Kiva

First off, please excuse any slight audio oddness, and also no offence is meant towards any known or unknown Chads! Except the princes. This time around, Emily & Mike are joined by social justice comics artist extraordinaire Kiva Bay, who was gracious/hyped enough to join us to talk about 1973's very furry Robin Hood. After returning to the present, there's some discussion about Cinderella, Marvel and (*shudder*) Descendants, and you know what? It's all Quite Good. We think. If you agree -...


Episode 55.5 (Bonus!): Star Wars Past, Present, Future, Celebration with Da

A little bonus conveniently accidentally ready for this special May day...Mike and David discuss the Star Wars Celebration convention, the new films, Star Wars Rebels, and the pressing question of what may or may not happen (and WHERE) in Disney parks, to best represent that galaxy far, far away.

We do, of course, discuss videogames and diversity - there is some Disney in there, too - as well as the un-reality of some holiday destinations, the loveliness of Chicago, the strange fear some folks have of diversity, and why YOU should go ahead and do a podcast. Yes, YOU. Only if you want to, y'know. If you enjoyed our discussion as...


Episode 54: Live Action, Trailers and Lego with Ria

It's a full episode! This time, Mike and Ria briefly (and without spoilers) discuss Cinderella, leading into a wider, typically rambling conversation about all sorts of Dsney live action stuff.

Bitesize Mike: Disney in the Genes

Another Bitesize Mike for you!

Bitesize Mike: Entitled to Disney?

Another Bitesize Mike for you!

Episode 53: Disney's LGBT Historyland

Yes, indeed, happy UK LGBT History Month! In this first episode of February '15, Mike and Emily delve into what they could find of LGBT people and happenings in Disney history. It's not a huge spoiler to say that there wasn't that much to be found - but we think we got a fantastic episode out of quite paltry research results.

Episode 52: Fresh Unfrozen Disney Sisters with Ria

It's Mike and the return of Ria this time, with a little pertinent news discussion, and a lot of talk about sisters.

Castle to Castle Goes Christmas: Where in the Park? Wandering Edition

It's that time again. But WAS that time last week... Merry Christmas, anyway - apologies for lateness, but you can consider this a Castle to Castle Goes Christmas AND New Year! This year's edition comes in the form of that old Disney podcasting chestnut, the Where in the Park? game. For the uninitiated, this involves a show of pretty much nothing but in-park audio, with no explanation as to what the next attraction will be - YOU get to guess! Or be surprised, your call...there are...
