Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, Tracey and Scott have fought their way here to the podcast; beyond the cinema, to take back the fountain that Mortis has stolen. Their will is as strong as his and our magic kingdom is great.  Mortis has no power over them - no power to stop them from talking about the 1986 Jim Henson-directed Labyrinth on this episode which our brave hosts had the opportunity to see on the big screen recently.  Then they will jump over to Tomorrowland to take a look at the attraction that Mortis’ power couldn’t contain (but budget constraints could), Rocket Rods for this month’s Forgotten Favorite.  After all these adventures, our hosts will return home to spend some time with Aaron DelPrince to learn about this year’s Indy Disney Meet happening on August 27.   All that, plus a call over to the Prince of the Land of Stench, err Mortis to find out at what’s happening at the Main Street Cinema on this episode.

There is  unrest in Disney, Indiana.  The Podcast Registration Act, also known as the RSS Feed Accords, has made its way out of committee and is heading for a full vote in front of the town council.  This legislation states that all podcasts should be fully registered online and easily accessible.  This has driven a wedge between our hosts - are you on #TeamTracey and support the act or are you on #TeamScott and think podcasts should be free in the wild?  Make your voice known as you listen to see if this divisiveness causes a riff, a skirmish or all out civil war between our hosts as they bring you their coverage of the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - <I>Captain America: Civil War</I>.  They've also got reviews of a couple of mobile games this episode - Marvel Puzzle Quest and Disney Crossy Road.  Can our hosts find common ground and get through the episode - or will a call over to the Main Street Cinema lead to tarmac tragedy?   Welcome to Disney, Indiana!
