The Disney Positive Podcast

By Spaceship
Join Spaceship (aka Spacey) - artist, musician, and curator for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's HITRECORD - as he hosts a fun fan podcast about a few of his favorite Disney things. Which are many things.

Now that Disney is well on its way to worldwide entertainment domination, more conversations can be had than ever before: Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, The Muppets, and even The Simpsons are up for gabs. If it can be found on Disney Plus, it's up for discussion on the Disney Positive Podcast!

Episode 0 - The Disney Positive Podcast: The Musical: The Series: The Trailer
Join Spacey (and Koura) on this preview trailer episode, where, like Professor Ned Brainard and his old, Flubber-fueled Model T in Disney's "The Absent-Minded Professor" - we finally get the darn thing up and flying. Or like Troy Bolton in High School Musical, we get our head in the game and bounce basketballs in a choreographed fashion while singing. In future episodes, the fidelity will be greater, but the heart will remain the same: just people who love Disney talking about the things they love, and hate to waste time drinking Haterade and eating Hater Tots and hating on the things they hate. With that...enjoy!
