Just a quick post to satisfy my curiosity. How many listeners to the podcast are there in the UK? All the Disney fans I know in South Wales have never heard of the podcast. What do you think?

Hi Guys,

Avid DIS unplugged fans here in the glorious city of london.

Not well known enough yet in the UK butwe are self appointed ambassadors for the the DIS in general.

Hopefully we keep spreading the word more and more uk visitors will benefit from this tremendous resource and community.

Started listening beginning of the year and we're slowly catching up with the older ones :thumbsup2

DH usually remind me it's on (bless him :goodvibes ) but got a bit confused when they switched days :confused:

We love the pod cast but don't know any proper Disney fans :confused3. We'll have to start converting people over to 'the Magic Side' :rotfl:

Tell me about it! I would so love to live in the states (I promise to work hard and give back to the community - something I'm less inclined to do in this country)
I got all excited when I heard Canada was looking for immigrants - until I saw that neither DH or myself was in the right field of work :confused3 :sad1:

Oh well, we're gonna keep trying to get out of the country :wizard:

The most recent e-mail show was so funny, it just feels like they're in your living room :lmao:

Can't wait for the next show :surfweb:

There is obviously a lot of UK interest in the show. Has anybody had a voicemail read out on the show? I was thinking of leaving one but was wondering what is the easiest/cheapest way of calling the US. Also do you think they will be able to understand a Welsh accent?

I listen to the podcast on my journey to and from work and sometimes during my lunchbreak. I download it via iTunes onto my mobile phone. I love it! Much better than the thumping music the teen behind me has turned up so loud that the whole bus can hear it! It puts me in a shiny, happy place on the dull commute to work. :)

I did leave a voicemail, but they haven't played it, which they should, because I'm desperate for a T-Shirt so my Dole Whip master plan will work!

I used skype, the actual call cost me 6p, but I had to buy 11.50 of credit, I'm sure I'll eventually burn that off.

That's so cooool :thumbsup2

I can never think of anyhing to say :confused: I think I've been on the Dis too much, I just seem to be able to remember tons of Disney related info but never useful stuff like the date or what I'm doing in the evening :lmao:

Button I do agree it sucks so much not being in the right job for Canada, if I could go back in time ......

DH is in IT and the job front is satuarted with IT skilled people :sad1: If we never get to live in America I would at least like a holiday home there.

Oh, good luck to any UK Disers that call/mail the show :cool1: I love how they love our accents, it makes you feel special :cloud9:

Anyone else laugh a bit when they heard Julie pronounce 'Devonshire?', maybe that just me, but Americans saying English place names always makes me giggle. I think we should give them a list of difficult ones to try and say on the podcast!

Hmm, how do you think they would pronounce Lewes?

07-31-2008, 06:51 PM
worcestershire, or Leicestershire are my favourites, tho we Brits are probably just as guilty - Maryland anyone? ;)

:goodvibes

I love Leicestershire too - it always seems to come out as "Lie-kes-ter-shy-er". For the Americans reading this, the correct pronunciation is "Less-ter-sheer" (for some reason lost in time!). Gloucestershire is another one (it should be "gloss-ter-sheer").

Maryland? I've always pronounced it as "Mary-land" - should it be something like "marry-land" then?

I also love that Dione Warwick can't pronounce her own name. :) (the UK town of Warwick is pronounced as "worr-ick")

08-01-2008, 05:18 AM
Maryland is said more like 'marilyn' I think, Arkansas is another one I'm sure most of us get wrong too :)

Ha! And those are more national places, I lived in a village Cogenhoe (pretty much only the locals know the correct pronunciation) which you say Cook-no (Cook meaning look out, noe meaning hill - look out on the hill!) so you can tell if people are local or not :lmao:

Even Towcester is a bit tricky you say Toaster:cool1: :thumbsup2

I do hope they read these out :rotfl2:

The biggest challenge would almost certainly be:

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch

This is a real Welsh town, and its name translates as "The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave".

So go on Julie, that's your challenge from the UK for this week. :)
