In the final crunch to get out the best possible version of our pilot episode produced, our podcast has been delayed by two days from when it was meant to be launched. The good news, however, is that today is day two of that delay, so expect the World Premier of our pilot episode later today (7/24/14). After that, new episodes will come out every two weeks on Tuesdays, starting on August 7, 2014 and going froward to the end of our first season. Till we finally put up our pilot episode on this website later today, we thought we’d give you a little tease from what to expect for episode two…
Here’s a short tease of Season 1 of our upcoming podcast!

A new documentary about Donald Duck comic book guru Carl Barks is in production and needs help with funding. Bark’s comics, as most Disney Afternoon fans know, was the basis for the very popular Disney Afternoon show DuckTales. The film is directed by Geoffroy Koeberle, who served as assistant director on such big Hollywood movies such as Transcendence and Transformers: Age of Extinction, and popular actor John Goodman is set to star as narrator for the film. Currently in need of $33,000 for production costs, the film producers have turned to the fans to help fund the project.
