A new, sort of, web site run by Paul Barrie, Jr. of Country Bear Playhouse web site, has a new site called Windows To The Magic. They do podcasts from Disneyland and are now experimenting with vid casts as well. he has 14 podcasts that are all downloadable and playable on your computer as MP3 files. The vidcast is MEG4 so that needs Quicktime 7. What Paul does is go to one of the Parks wearing a stereo mic and recording device on his arm. He then walks thru one of the Parks to a destination so it's just like you are there. All the ambient sounds and when you get to a destination you go on the ride or listen to the show. It's really well done and the sounds are great. Paul also narrates and explains things during the podcast and even has constests from time to time to see who can guess which park you are in and what attraction you end up at. There are prizes and later this year he will be giving away a Ipod Shuffle player.
ok, honestly I dont know what podcast in..I know it goes on your iPod...what are they?
They're pretty much radio shows, except instead of listening to them on the radio at a certain time, you download them to your iPod (or another mp3 player or even just to your computer) and then listen whenever you want. Since they are fan made, there are thousands of topics to choose from, so you'll be guaranteed to find something you like.
Personally, I love 1313southharbourblvd.com's Lost in Disneyland podcasts. Very nice!
I thought the same thing about podcasts when I first heard about them, so I didn't pay any attention to them because I don't have, or want, an Ipod. Then I found out that people just make a sort of radio show, compile it into at edited MP3 file and you can listen on any Mp3 type player or just download it to your computer and listen to it whenever you want. I even collect a series of Harry Potter Podcasts about GOF and burned them onto a CD and then I can listen to them on my shelf stereo or MP3 portable disc player on the long bus trip to Disneyland and back if I don't have anything to read. They are kind of neat, and you can find podcasts on just about everything.
edit - I almost forgot, though this doesn't directly have anything to do with DL, everyone should also check out http://www.oldradiofun.com/blog/ They are doing a series on Disney and there's a great interview with Walt himself on there, as well as old movie promotions.
