The Disney, Indiana Podcast
In this bi-weekly podcast, your hosts Tracey and Scott take you to Disney, Indiana and discuss books, movies, music, theme parks, video games and whatever else in the Disneyverse they'd like to talk about. They'll share audio clips, interviews and other surprises along the way. If you enjoy all aspects of the Mouse, come hang out in Disney, Indiana. Disney, Indiana cannot be found on any standard map. It's more of a state of mind, or more precisely a state of heart.

Breathe, just breathe - the Disney, Indiana podcast will be around in 2018. But before then, our hosts turn their attention to the latest episode in the Star Wars saga, Episode 8: The Last Jedi. They go through some production notes on the film, discuss its marketing and promotional tie-ins, examine the critical and popular response so far, as well as share their own thoughts. Along the way, they'll check into the Main Street Cinema one more time this year and look ahead to 2018.  Happy New Year and welcome to Disney, Indiana!
