I listen 🎧 & was waiting to hear how Walt use to draw cartoons for his mum as a child As my daughter worked a Epcot she had to learn the history & secrets regarding Walt & Disney’s so if customers told her a story she had to act surprised So there’s a hell of a lot more to do with Disney that is much more sinister Please research more for coco cola as I’m a huge collector

This brilliant podcast is one of the best in its class. It shows masterful artisanship when it comes to voice acting and audio scoring, all whilst keeping the historical narrative accurate. This podcast has a distinct lack of detailed business analysis and instead opts for a more detailed storytelling experience. This choice makes the typical listener more entertained, but it can lead to some annoyances for a more business inclined audience. Although this podcast is by no means perfect, it merits a listen by anyone who enjoys business history.
