Glenn Ellmers has done it again, with a fresh provocation entitled “America Never Existed.” Say what?!?! Did he drink some 1619 Moonshine or something?

Hello and welcome to the Enchanted Ears Podcast, where we discuss anything and everything Disney. Before we tell you all about our Adventures by Disney trip to Portugal, it's time for a little Disney News! While we were gone, a lot has happened. San Diego Comic Con for one, which had a few major announcements. The biggest of these was that Daredevil will be getting an 18 episode first season on Disney+. The biggest absence of an announcement though was regarding phase 6 of the MCU, which we assume will be reserved for D23. Tokyo DisneySea debuted its new night show “Believe! Sea of Dreams” which replaced Phantasmic and features projection mapping on the Hotel MiraCosta. Disney also had its earnings call. The parks are making money, but the streaming services are losing money. During the call, we learned that on December 8th, Disney+ will increase its cost $3 if you want to continue to watch your content ad free or you can continue to pay $7.99 but will have to watch with ads. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party stared on August 12. New this year is a Max Goof wearing a Powerline costume. Phew! That was a lot of news! Okay, we're ready to dig in to our Adventures by Disney trip to Portugal. Adventures by Disney is essentially group travel with a pre-set itinerary and the Disney-level of service. The Portugal trip begins in Porto, then moves to the capital city of Lisbon and finishes up in the Algarve. In this podcast, we discuss our favorite parts of the trip, our least favorite parts of the trip, the value of having the guides vs booking it yourselves, and give you a step by step of the experience. Then we candidly tell you whether or not we think it was worth it. When doing a trip like this, it's easiest to book through a travel agent since there are a lot of little things you need to do ahead of time. We always book through Becky Ginther at Castle Dreams Travel. Check her out at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, thank you so much for listening! Don't forget to check us out on Facebook and Youtube or submit a question/topic for us to discuss on a future episode or support us on Patreon. Have a magical week!
Damon returns to the show and gives a report on his recent WDW trip including Moonlight Magic at Typhoon Lagoon, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, new rides, and staying at Old Key West. Disney announced that Max Goof will appear as Powerline in the Boo to You Parade during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. At their recent earnings call, Disney gave some insight into park demand, park reservations and future investments in the parks. Soarin' at EPCOT is testing a single ride line. With D23 just a few weeks away, the guys discuss rumors that a return date for “Fantasmic!” will be announced at the event along with a long rumored Wreck-It Ralph themed attraction.
With this episode of the Three Whisky Happy Hour, the great John Yoo joins up as a permanent co-host along with Steve and Lucretia, having spent the last several weeks in Triple-A podcast instructional league while Steve was drinking his way across the British Isles. Perfect timing, since John worked in the Justice Department once […]

If I stay overseas any longer, it’s pretty clear the usurpation of the 3wHH will morph into the “The McRibb Happy Meal Podcast” if I don’t put a stop to it, so I made sure to disrupt this week’s episode once again from London, this time while finishing off a bottle of Poit Dhubh (potch-goo), […]
With all the sound and fury surrounding Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan, we think it's timely to hear from an expert on the Info-Pacific to see it signifies much. Misha Auslin, host of The Pacific Century, joins to do just that. He identifies the silver lining in the whole affair; elucidates how China's strategy has frozen us from stating our interests; points to the return of the engagement crowd; and deduces the motivations behind China's intimidation games. And with Peter and Rob off the grid, the Power Line podcasters Steve Hayward and Lucretia implement the next phase of their auricular invasion. With James, they jaw on energy policies, Arizona's primaries, DeSantis's move against an insubordinate state attorney, lawlessness in Minneapolis and the Kansas vote.

I can’t believe I had to crash my own podcast today to blunt the slow-rolling coup that Lucretia and John Yoo started last week in my absence, but by the miracle of the internet I did just that, dropping in for a few minutes between drams of whisky and dishes of haggis. We kick around […]
We've got so much to cover in this episode, starting with the second half of the Powerline Climb, which has a lot less climbing than the first half (but doesn't feel like it). From there, we talk about your tapering strategy with Coach Cody Waite -- and he's got a great free offer for a tapering plan for you.

I can’t believe I left the car keys to the podcast sitting on the kitchen counter when I left for overseas, and now Lucretia and John Yoo have snatched them up and usurped the usufructs of the 3WHH. After they finally get clear of their ritualistic but obligatory abuse of me, they get down to […]

The Powerline Climb is undeniably the toughest part of the Leadville 100. You're exhausted, you're hot and exposed (or it's raining and you're exposed), and the false summits just keep coming. Well, in this episode we tell you how to get through this extraordinary segment of the LT100. We also welcome Coach Cody Waite back to the program for more training advice as we get to the final month before the big day.

In this second half of my conversation with Geoff Shepard (part 1 here, if you missed it), we walk through the famous “smoking gun” Oval Office tape of June 23, 1972, which was the final straw that led to Nixon’s resignation in August, 1974.

Has there been a more momentous week for the Supreme Court ever? The Court went three-for-three on the key cases this week (Carson, on school choice; Bruen, on gun rights: and Dobbs, overturning Roe and Casey), not simply on the decision of the specific cases at hand, but the broader reasoning behind the decisions. Indeed […]

When it comes to energy, is the Biden administration simply stupid, or blindly ideological? Yes—we should embrace the power of “and,” because these possibilities are not mutually exclusive. Indeed the Bidenistas appear to be both dumb and ideological. Yesterday I ran into energy expert extraordinaire Robert Bryce—we’re at a murky gathering at an undisclosed location—and […]

In this episode I have with me Aaron Gomez, who asked me to watch and talk about the new Rescue Rangers movie on Disney+. I watched it, but I couldn't find much to say about it for an entire podcast episode, so I asked if he'd like to come on the show and discuss A Goofy Movie, instead. Because I can talk about A Goofy Movie all day long. Don't ding it! Read on!Aaron and I don't remember each other from high school, but we clearly ran around in the same circles. We reminisce a little about high school, but then jump into talking about the new Rescue Rangers movie found on Disney+. I suggest it's a replacement of Roger Rabbit, but he says it's a compliment of that movie. He's right. And it's astounding how many other properties from other movie studios populate this little movie. Who would have written the checks? Universal or Disney? And can you imagine if movie studios really combined their powers and merged worlds? So Rescue Rangers and A Goofy Movie share origin stories - and they were both born out of Disney Afternoon, a series of cartoon shows that aired after school during the week. The lineup consisted of Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop (what A Goofy Movie was born from), Darkwing Duck, Tale Spin, and Duck Tales. I shock Aaron by informing him that A Goofy Movie is not part of the golden era of Disney animated movies. It's a one-off, completely separated from Beaty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Lion King. My assumption is that A Goofy Movie is evolving better than any of those others because it appeals to dads now and us dads are showing this simple masterpiece to our kids. A Goofy Movie was smart in knowing what a teenager was like and what they go through. Every teenager can relate to Max, and it turns out, a lot of dads can find kinship with Goofy. Aaron and I share our stories about trying to woo our childhood crushes - both failed attempts. We may be ultimate geeks, but we marvel at how cool Powerline is. Is Pete actually a good guy in this movie? Aaron surprises me with his knowledge of Goof Troop - a show I haven't seen since I was a kid. But his memory of specific episodes is really impressive.Also what's impressive is how this movie changes when you get older. As a kid, you side with Max and want Goofy to take him to the Powerline concert. But as an adult, we side with Goofy. Either way, Goofy is the best TV/movie dad ever. Aaron tells a really funny story about how he got sent to the principal's office. I question if his consequences were a bit harsh, but his prank was really funny nonetheless. He also talks about the bond he has with his father figure, and the reason this movie is close to him is because it reminds him of this man whom he still speaks to. We talk about how much a parent should trust their child.And is Pete a drug king? Otherwise, how does he afford that monster RV? I make a confession to an old childhood friend whom I hope tunes into this episode. Aaron gets quizzed about the movie and he shares his three desert island movies.

When Arizona Governor Doug Ducey appointed the noted libertarian lawyer Clint Bolick to the Arizona Supreme Court in 2016, the left freaked out (so what else is new), calling his appointment “chilling.” The Center for American Progress gasped, “Mr. Bolick has spent the last quarter century working — at times quite successfully — to make […]

EMTs and other first responders see a lot of things. Sometimes, they arrive on scene and find a situation that they never expected to see. In Port Orange, Florida, paramedics were called to the scene of a car accident on Interstate 95. Only one car was involved. When they arrived, they discovered that something had crashed through the windshield of the car and hit the driver in the head. That “something” was still inside the car. It was a large turtle. The driver of the car survived, and surprisingly, so did the turtle. And then there are a lot of situations where first responders show up, and there's nothing they can do. Accidents happen, and people die in a large variety of ways. Chrissy is a Paramedic, and she has a video where she talks about the variety of calls she has been on. Some of the things she's seen are pretty traumatizing. You can see her full video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2svI1Ofr9A So paramedics are pretty much trained to expect the unexpected. But still, there are some things you would never even dream of happening. My guest today is Kennedy, a teenage girl from Idaho. She was in a rollover car crash, and while the car was rolling she was thrown out. That in itself is not really that unusual – when you're not wearing a seat belt, it's very likely that you're going to be flung out of the car with great force. What makes Kennedy's story very different is where she ended up.

This week’s review of the news is more wide-ranging than usual, starting with the question of whether the release of Top Gun: Maverick will turn out to be one more small indicator that the backlash against the cultural left is gaining steam.

When people talk about Leadville, they rarely rhapsodize about the flattish segments that connect the iconic climbs. And that's too bad, because how you ride between the climbs determines how you feel when you get to those climbs. In this episode of The Course, we help you ride smart on the road, seting a strategy for maximum gain with minimum effort. We're also pleased to have Dr Justin Ross join to talk about a critical part of your Leadville prep: training your brain. Considering that most Leadville veterans agree this race is (at least) 80% mental, this conversation could make a real difference to you on race day. We'll see you at the starting line!
There are so many things that seem . . . wrong about the 2020 election, and now comes the new documentary film “2000 Mules” offering some visually compelling circumstantial evidence, along with a few examples of direct testimony of voting misbehavior in nursing homes and other locales.

Considering that it represents only a tiny fraction of the time you spend on the LT100 course—just a few minutes, really—the Powerline descent deserves an outsized amount of preparation. Why? well if you ride it right it'll be behind you in a moment. If you ride it wrong, however, the Powerline descent can absolutely ruin your day. So of course we're going to give this quick downhill trip the time it deserves on The Course. We also meet up with Coach Cody of Waite Endurance, this time to talk about your next phase of training: high-intensity workouts. Follow his advice now and, come race day, you'll be glad you did.
