WD-FM: The Official Walt Disney Family Museum PodcastJoin Now to Follow

The Walt Disney Family Museum is a center for art, animation, and inspiration. Located in the historic Presidio, a national park in San Francisco, California, the museum celebrates the remarkable life of Walt Disney by telling his story, celebrating his legacy, and examining his influence on the world of entertainment. Ten years ago, we were founded in 2009 by Walt Disney’s daughter, Diane Disney Miller, who wanted to share the story of her father with the world. Now, we are hosting a year-long celebration to mark the museum’s tenth anniversary. In recognition of the museum’s history, and in order to honor the man behind the magic, this podcast will be an extension of that celebration. Join for stories and conversations about the remarkable life and legacy of Walt Disney as we reflect on The Walt Disney Family Museum's first decade as an institution.

Best to the Nest with Margery & Elizabeth show

Best to the Nest with Margery & ElizabethJoin Now to Follow

When Elizabeth Ries and Margery Punnett hosted a myTalk 107.1 radio show together, they joked that their most personal conversations happened during the commercial breaks. During one of these pauses, Margery shared an important family principle: bringing your best self to your home. Being an urban farmer with a flock of chickens, Elizabeth quipped, "Bring your best to the nest!" The outside world shouldn't get the smiling happy version of you while your family gets the crabby and exhausted one. On "Best To The Nest," Margery & Elizabeth explore the simple concept of creating strong, comforting, beautiful nests that prepare us to fly.

Keep it in Perspective show

Keep it in PerspectiveJoin Now to Follow

Just like the name implies, Keep it in Perspective is all about taking what's going on in our crazy politics and putting it in context. Let's face it: traditional news media - even the good stuff! - is doing a great job at normalizing the craziness we're living through. And that didn't begin with this administration. We've been sliding down the spiral of insanity since The Reagan Revolution, and we're only falling faster with the 24-hour news cycle, the web, and social media.KIIP slows it down, steps back from the hype, and well, puts it all into perspective. We'll measure up what's happening now against a little recent history. When you hear the politicos talking budgets and numbers, we'll take it back to economics - at least a simplified version. And since schools stopped teaching civics, we can do some refreshers here. Informative but fun, Keep it in Perspective is reclaiming reason and interring ignorance one episode at a time. Subscribe today and don't forget to share with your friends.
