Episode 54: Disney & Diversity Part 5: Queerness, DeSantis, & Chapek
On this episode I'm joined by Marlene Bellissimo from the YouTube channel: Dreamsounds. Me and her discuss a long overdue topic about the Don't Say Gay fiasco, Disney's relationship with queerness, and our own placement in all of it. We also talk about the oddly fateful encounter we had pre-pandemic. This is definitely one of those bare soul episodes and it was great to switch up the pace. Hope y'all enjoy it.

It's 'bout that time y'all! HHN season is upon us; just in time, I'm here with the yearly HHN armchairing episode. This year I'm joined by Emory Alvarado, aka the mother of Lil'Boo, HHN's new mascot. We both go back and forth presenting what we would want our HHN's to look like. We got drag queen witches, gangsta rappers, and even a zombie Rick James! Not gonna lie to y'all, I think this might rival last year's!

Episode 52: [Insert funny pun title for How Bowers](IOU)
Today I got an OG in the Walt Disney World fanbase space, one of the heads of RetroMagic, RetroWDW, and the Lake Buena Vista Historical Society: How Bowers. We got to talking about how he got his start in the community, what he thinks of the new school bloggers and YouTubers, EPCOT being run by PBS, and how RetroMagic was formed. He was a massive get for the show and was on my personal list of dream guests, so I had a blast. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.

We have a great time talking about all things going on with the parks and everything around it such as the ever polarizing figure Chapek, why Disney isn't firing back at Universal's Epic Universe quite yet, and my run in with Daddy D' Amaro. Great time all around and can't wait to have him back.

Oh, and of course, we had to talk a little bit about the twitter EPCOT debate. Solid two-hour conversion, had a great time.

I'm joined by Hunter Fagan from the podcast Grim Grinning Hosts and we're talking about our picks for what we'd do if we were in charge of HHN this year. We chose 8 houses, 2 scare zones, 1 show, and 1 bar each. Nothing but good picks all around. Hope y'all have fun listening as much as we loved recording it!

Episode 44: The Toon Lagoon Episode
On this episode of APFATBMD, I'm joined by Storybook Amusement from the youtube channel...storybook amusement? Anyway Storybook has been doing such great work uncovering attractions that were cut from Islands of Adventure very early in the parks life span. The one we're talking about on this episode is the Pandemonium Cartoon Circus show that was located in the now vacant big top stage at Toon Lagoon. Storybook recently found a full recording of the show, and of course me being a huge Toon Lagoon fan, I had to have him on to talk about it.

Episode 43: Disney and Diversity Part 4: Rushed Representation
Sorry to keep you waiting! APFATBMD IS BACK! Starting off with another episode of speaking about diversity in disney, mostly the parks. I'm joined by Fredrick Chambers, host of Imagine Tomorrow. We're talking about the trailer for the new Disney movie Encanto, and how seemingly on instinct people want to throw the movie into Animal Kingdom. Encanto is not alone, we've seen this trend of folks advocating for a new movie to be placed in the parks before the movie has been released or the movie just came out. This leads to a bigger discussion about placing movies where they don't belong.

Episode 42: Disney and Diversity - Part 3
At the beginning of the year, during the first week of black history month, I posted this open letter to Disney, and since then, there's been some buzz. Although I wrote the letter, I figured it would be great to talk about it with my actual recorded voice so every can hear my tone. Often times stuff on social media can be a misconstrued because we can't hear the tone of the persons voice. If you are someone like me, who got hit with some discrimination at Disney or Universal or any of the places we should be confrontable with you can always reach out and I'll amplify your story. Things like this shouldn't happen at a place that is supposed to be an escape from the woes of regular life.

Episode 41: APFAT APFAT Friday
On this episode I'm joined by Lito Morona to talk about his and my ideas for what a cartoon network based land would look like at a theme park and how it's amazing the channel hasn't had a chance to really shine in a theme park. Had a good time, I know I always say that but it's always a good time talking about things you're passionate about. Speaking of passion, we kind of go off the rails and dip into other channels IPs, but that's just a good sign of communication.
160 minutes | Apr 12, 2021
Episode 40: Our Epic Universe
On this episode I'm joined by reoccurring guests: Fredrick Chambers from the podcast: Imagine Tomorrow and Matthew Serrano, director of the Halyx documentary, both, at the same time, oddly enough for the first time. We go over our picks for what our four worlds would be for our versions of Epic Universe.

Episode 39: Meet the World with Aki Hayashi
Hey everyone this is going to be a new type of episode than one you've seen on the show before. This style of show will deal with me interacting with guests who's home parks are the international parks. I recent met a theme park fan from Japan, on twitter, who was sharing some great insight about how the Japanese feel about their parks. I just found that fascinating and I just had to get him on the show. Also please bare with Aki, English is not his main language and he does his best throughout this interview. He's a very nice guy who doesn't deserve any disrespect for how he talks and communicates. He's doing the best he can. The fact that he can communicate in english is impressive on it's own merits. Enjoy the show.

Episode 38: If I was President
I'm back with a new episode featuring my guest Trader Avery. He came to me with a show idea for what would I do if I was president of the Disney Company for a week. I hit him back saying make it a month and that he should come on the show too since it was his idea. Thus the idea for this episode. I'm glad I had him on, you know it's a good time when you get a little off track due to the chemistry of the conversation. Hope y'all like it as much as we liked making it.
92 minutes | Jan 21, 2021
Episode 37: Super Mash Bros
On this episode of APFAT, I'm joined by my friends Alicia Stella from Orlando Parkstop and Matthew Serrano, director of Halyx. We discuss other Nintendo properties that we would like to see in the Universal parks that haven't been announced or rumored now that Universal has joined hands with Nintendo.

Episode 36: Gatcha Green Room - Rachel Duncan and Matthew Serrano
This was another off the cuff discussion me, Rachel, and Matthew had as we were TRYING to get to Da Great Black Movie Ride topic.
65 minutes | Dec 18, 2020
Episode 35: Gatcha Green Room - Fredrick Chambers
I've been having this trend of rambling and talking to guest before I offically kick of the show, most of the time we realize around an hour into recording that we've talked about everything else besides the topic we came to do on the show. In the past I've retrofitted them as episodes. So now I'm just gonna make a series for them that are esentially a random gatcha sorta episode. Basically these episodes are completely off the cuff and you never know what you're gonna get, like a gatcha machine. But still anything from a gatcha/capsule machine is always a good time. This is from a failed attempt where me and friend of the show, Fredrick Chambers, are trying to record his PotP episode. Hope y'all like it
