048. The One Where We Sparkle With Sophie


On the 48th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave talk a little Disney mug and Disney Lego in the midst of a busy week, then hop on to the main conversation.

And that conversation is none other than YouTube star and long time (and furloughed) Disney Cruise Line Cast Member Sophie Allen... better known as Sparkle with Sophie!

Sophie chats about her Cruise Line auditions... characters that make her woozy... working on a theater that is constantly moving... beginning her wildly popular YouTube series... how the UK Pavilion in Epcot holds up to the real place... and so much more. 

You'll laugh quite a bit listening to TheMSEPod's first British accent and now new friend of the show!

046. The One with the Disney Park Draft


In the 46th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave talk a little about Dave's recent trip, some next week's news, then stage the very first MSEPodcast Theme Park Draft. It's no fun with just the two hosts, so Chris, Catron, and Ryan from the IAmGeek podcast join the show to create parks of their own!

A little trivia determines who goes first, then everything and anything at WDW is fair game -- attractions, resorts, restaurants... and lightsaber shops? That too.

This is a hilarious hour as everyone grabs the good attractions, and even some bad attractions, and can Jenn get The Grand Floridian before anyone else does? Will d$ take any of the All Stars?  And will Ryan realize there is more than Star Wars at Walt Disney World? 

045. The One with Overlooked Epcot

In the 45th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave make it a short show this week for Spring Break. 

A quick conversation about allergy dining at Disney, then they take a close look at Epcot -- not just the big stuff like Soarin or Test Track, but the smaller things that tend to be overlooked -- things that are loved that some don't notice. 

Certain Epcot background music... the East Atlantic Current... visuals on the monorail... spending time in The Land... and so much more.
