I discovered this show about two months ago and since then Iâve listened and caught up on every show and every second gate episode as well. I love it and hope it continues on forever. City Walk Florida has to happen because I need the Sector Keeper back in my life ASAP.
I have been listening to Mike, Scott, and Jason since they talked about the great movie ride. And I havenât missed a Friday since then. This show is part of my weekly routine and each of the boys bring genuine humor into each episode. This podcast never deserved the 3 star rating it got and Iâm here to offset that. Loved the fake rock final four episode. Keep up the good work boys. I hope to one day survive podcast the ride!
I did not know what I was getting into when I got the recommendation from a friend to listen to this podcast. I knew I was a pretty big fan of Disney attractions but I had no idea this was a level that existed. I feel much stronger in my park knowledge now. Also the Tony Baxter episode was incredible.
My cartoon necktie would be a dark tie like the ones worn by Tin Machine. Iâm sure if the Sales boys collaborate with McGruff the Crime Dog the good boys will be the first to tell me.Also, Nick Mundy is a bad man.
These guys are fun to listen too, they can get a little ridiculous sometimes but donât we all. Talk about more then just theme parks and that keeps it interesting.
Like driving on Gumbo Gardens road. Nothing better!
Early on, I docked this review a star because of too many tangents. While the episodes have somehow gotten even longer, tangents have greatly decreased in number and length (and no more Bugsy, thank God). I always look forward to listening to this podcast (even through the CityWalk saga!) and Iâm glad it has survived. Canât wait for more history, more guests, and more rides. (P.S. You should bring Austin Carroll from FastPass to the Past onto the podcast as a guest!)
Beach Bum Boulevard
Wasting-A Way: (A street) in Margaritaville
âA MAN!â was said by Lena Hyena (as played by June Foray of Rocky of Bullwinkle fame) was inspired by Liâl Abner comics and Tex Avery cartoons (she reacts like the wolf acted when he saw red hot riding hood) Maybe unrelated but in the 1956 Ten Commandments when Chuck Heston is passed out on Yvonne De Carloâs (of Lilly Munster fame) land her sisters respond with a very similar âA MAN!â
Iâve only listened to the Jenny Nicholson episodes and those were great, I trust other episodes to also be good. If only Jenny was a permanent host, anyways good pod probably
I am not alone in my nerdy fascinations of amusement parks! One of the best parts of my Friday mornings.
As a theme park geek, I've searched far and wide for podcasts on that topic. The vast majority of them are dry and amount to nothing more than an information dump but this one finds a way to make a theme park podcast that is hilarious, entertaining and enlightening. Thank you guys for giving me one that doesn't feel like homework.
The guys and their humor are great - this has quickly become one of my go-to podcasts. Also the subject matter is interesting - I never thought I cared about theme parks, but it turns out I really do..
My husband loves the show but already wrote a review so heâs making me write one. From all I hear from him about the show, it sounds good. He adamantly insists they do good research and always check their facts. That was something he harps on all the time and stressed that I added it to my review. Apparently, if you like theme parks and some hosts who make you feel like theyâre your friends, this is the podcast for you. Also, Iâm suppose to say that i would have a cravat for my cartoon character? Something about a Hanna Barbara episode requirement? I donât know. Subscribe and listen so my husband will leave me alone about this podcast.
I started listening from the beginning and had to write a review after the Mickey and Friends Parking Garage episode because any podcast that discusses the intricate web of transportation infrastructure of theme parks is quality content. (Almost as good as the discussion of Tomorrowlandâs municipal building names.)
It took me way longer than 19 days but I finally finished the citywalk saga. What a journey - highs (everything with the sector keeper!), lows (some of those food stories were pretty sad) - and now I know more than anyone ever should know about the history of universal citywalk. Thanks for the good times, boys! Canât wait until the next sector keeper needs to be freed. ð
Please please please do an Orlando trip together in 2019 or 2020 or whenever but soonish, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ð
This podcast gave me life and reinvigorated my love of fake rocks.
Really enjoyable podcast about themeparks and themepark related stuff. The guys are funny and generalyl know their stuff. It's also nice to listen to because they are genuine friends who hang out and aren't doing this just to do a podcastâthey genuinely love doing this stuff together and that makes it fun to listen to.ONLY compaint is every so often there is an episode where they go off on too many tangents and don't cover the topic very well. The themepark toy episode was listerally about everything but toys until the last 5 minutes. Thankfully they are entertaining enough to save it.#goodboys4life #Jason4DLR
I will replay podcast the ride episodes Iâve already heard before listening to other podcasts. The good boys give me strength
Couldnât love this podcast more.
Good podcast but they only spend about 5 minutes per podcast on the actual topic theyâre discussing. The rest of the time theyâre rambling. Fun to listen to though.
This podcast is fantastic, I love listening to every episode and just laughing along with the guys. Thank you gentleman!
The Sector Keeper sent me. Took me a while to get into this, and the best parts are the episodes with the Sector Keeper.. but I got hooked enough to listen to the 19+ hours of content.
President Richard Nixon pulled himself up by his bootstraps and rose to the presidency in the United States! He went to college and worked as a gas station attendant! He was never attractive or popular, but was always a diligent, smart man with incisive decision-making abilities and I will NOT stand by and have his good name be besmirched by three fake good boys!! The president is to be honored and respected! HAVE SOME DECENCY! MY CHILD LISTENED TO THIS PODCAST AND NOW HE WALKS AROUND THE HOUSE YELLING âPRESIDENT NIXON WAS BAD MAN! WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO WORK IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR!â My wife wants a divorce! Youâve ruined my life, Podcast: The Ride. Please show President Nixon the kindness and generosity of spirit he earned during his two terms in office!
Love your podcast, but for to love of all things holy leave Nixon alone! Just donât talk about him. Donât make me call the sector keeper on you. But love your In-depth explanation of all the rides/parks/food/other.
This is by far one of my favorite podcast. These guys keep my laughing the entire time. The characters like Mugsy and The Sector Keeper add so much to the world building that I can only find here. Perhaps one day Mugsy and The Sector Keeper shall meet in the ultimate show down? Perhaps theyâll just do a 22 part saga on Downtown Disney.
I found out about this podcast from granddaughters magazine and itâs the best. Every Friday morning the first thing I do is check my phone to see what the weekly topic is. If you enjoy theme parks give it a listen.
This show is entertaining as all hell. Great mix of personalities. I donât like political talk, or humor, so I could do without the obligatory one per episode Presidential commentary, but I just roll my eyes and move on.If you want to avoid being preached at and spoken down to, skip the Bill and Ted episode. Itâs two hours of it. I really wish the boys would cut back on the politics, but this show has brought me a lot of laughs, so it still gets 5 stars from me.
These guys have made me laugh a few times
I originally listened to Podcast: The Ride on a recommendation from a theme park fan without knowing anything else about the show. It took me about 2 1/2 months of listening to realize that these guys were comedy writers, which explained why all of their childhood stories are about being mamaâs boys and social outcasts. I didnât really know what a podcast from 3 comedians would be like, but this is a lot more unintentionally funny than I expected. Itâs definitely worth your time.
I love this just as it is, don't ever change. Or do change if you want to. Still perfect.
Five Star is purely and only for the city walk saga.A true epic of the podcast medium.The modern day Odyssey.
I am not the most knowledgeable another theme parks and never really cared about them until listening to this podcast. Now I canât get enough, even to the point of listening to 19 episodes about CityWalk. I was truly hooked when listening to the over two hour long episode about parking lots with Nick Wiger. If these men can make that interesting, then anything they discuss can be. Truly a fun and informative podcast for all fans of Disney, Universal, and theme parks.
Pairs well with a nice cheese.
I enjoy this podcast! I am pleasantly surprised by how much I am enjoying the CityWalk saga. Shout out to the sector keeper!
I give this show 96 tomatoes.
The sectorkeeper sent me... boys boys... This is the first podcast I've ever really listened to - I found it from Mike's plug on Screen Junkies and thought I'd listen on my commute. I don't know what I expected, exactly, but I can tell you that the pod is 70% tangents and anecdotes, 20% dry facts that may or may not be related to the topic at hand and will certainly not ever be useful, and 10% actually discussing the topic. I don't often laugh out loud at stuff I'm listening to privately but I tell you, I don't think I've gone an episode without busting out laughing at some point. It's basically a workplace hazard. Anyway, I came into this because I thought there'd be roller coaster talk, only to find out that 2/3 of the hosts are Scared Bois and this is really about theming and history and comedy. But hey, I'm all here for it. I think out of all of the episodes so far I've actually only been on one of these rides/parks: Splash Mountain when I was a small child. Yet, I loved all the episodes, with the exceptions of the Bugsy one(not awful, but as one of the first episodes it was off-putting), and poor Sector 16 (If you can talk for 2 hours each about 2 different parking garages, you can spend more than 2 minutes on a food court!) Wrapping up this obscenely long review, Horny Treats Boi Jason is my favorite, but of course I love #Botanicus Good Boi Mike and #NoLaunchQueen Scott as well. I'm glad I could give the sectorkeeper and his pepperoni eyes strength and save him from hell with Sinatra as a roommate. But also #JusticeforSector16
Glad this exists!
These guys are great. I'm not too much into amusement parks, but I just love the company of the hosts and guests. This one is a must listen for me.
Iâve listened to these guys talk for dozens of hours about a mall Iâve never been to and parking garages. Sometimes they even talk about theme park rides. Itâs much more entertaining than that makes it sound
These are good boys and they curse just the right amount.
I came here for an episode with Paul Scheer and got hooked immediately. These guys (AKA The Good Boys) are very funny and have a real affection for theme parks, treats, and robots. Highly recommended.
Boys Boys, you give me strength
I started listening to these boys with the CityWalk Saga episodes, and I was hooked! That whole series is pure gold (especially the episodes with the Sector Keeper).The only real negative here is that one (or more) of the hosts loudly fiddles with his mic or mic stand on EVERY EPISODE. Periodically, the boys will be digging in on a juicy riff and then obnoxious crackling and crinkling will cut through and murder my ears in my headphones. Seriously boys, please stop touching those dang mics.If you can look past a few unpleasant sound issues, there are hours upon hours of fun to be had here!
Feel good and informative. Donât listen if youâre trying to avoid the temptation to spend all of your money at Disney. Even the 19 episode series on the inferior Hollywood city walk was a hoot.
you guys stop fumbling with the mics. 'great' if not ridiculously self indulgent, I do truly love listening but the mics getting messed with has made the show borderline unlistenable. I love you guys and see you perform when possible, just wish the mics only picked up Mike and Scott's dulcet tones and Jason's Philly accent.ð
Hilarious, sincere, and an absolute joy to listen to. As far as Iâm concerned, Podcast: The Ride is just about the only good reason for the internet these days.
