This is easily the best show on the DIS. Deni, Ryno, Craig & Jackie have a magical chemistry and balance the discussions in an entertaining way. I appreciate that they respect each others opinions, even when they disagree and there is not a host that has to interrupt someone all of the time. This is now the show that Tuesday used to be. I would be happy if they took over the Tuesday flagship show as well going forward. Best crew the DIS has ever had IMO. Great job team!

I think I am late to this discussion, but this is the first "Off the Rails" I have listened to. I like the less scripted format.

I think my breaking point for Disney would be when I truly feel like every single attraction or ride is based on a movie or film. The Land is still untouched by that tendency, as are parts of AK. Since I don't have children and travel solo, I like that there are still some pockets that have an "adult" vibe.

Thank you all for posting this - I will check it out. TBH I had just unpinned the Dis Podcasts after finding Pete too condescending to the team during last week's show keep hurling insults then backing up with comments 'Im just kidding'. Sorry to me that is a form of disrespect/ subtle bullying, and I also love the banter between those 4 when Pete not around. Just my opinion but I'm switching channels

Of course its your option to switch channels.

I've met Pete several times and know that he really is kidding when he makes those comments. He doesn't disrespect them at all.

Fair point as I don't know him personally and good to hear you do and that he is just kidding - they are a passionate group of experts and deserve the best

    Agree with all points and would add would love to have Pete join this show on occasion. I adore his passion for all things Disney which results in him going on off the rail rants and at times I hear more of his Jersey accent when this happens.

    I couldn't consume any DIS / Disney content for a long time with this current situation. I still haven't gotten back to listening to the Tuesday show, but Off the Rails has reignited my enthusiasm a little and I never miss it!

    I, of course, wouldn't mind seeing Pete on a very occasional basis on the Off the Rails shows. However, any more often than that, the show would lose its "looser format" and more relaxed attitude and aura that makes it especially refreshing and appealing to me. Just IMHO, of course.

    Speaking of Off the Rails, my favorite of the podcasts......, was there a new one last week? I can't seem to find it and need my lunchtime walk fix!

    There was, but it's a bit different, but VERY enjoyable, IMHO. Craig and Jackie talk about how they started with the DIS (and a bunch of other background stuff). I loved it!

    I actually would prefer Pete NEVER be on this show. He already has a forum on every other show to offer his opinions. The charm of this show is that he is not there to talk over his cast or insult them (yay - I know it’s his “humor”). What I find interesting is that their personalities shine and they are all more entertaining when they are not encumbered with having Pete hosting. IMO - this show would instantly lose its charm if Pete was on.

    I used to think that, but look at their faces sometimes when he “joking” with them. It makes me think they put up with him more then anything.

    I am super late to the thread but just want to add that I’ve been binging Off the Rails along with some other Dis podcasts and it is such a breath of fresh air. Love this group and it’s so fun!! I’m newer to the Dis podcasts, but really appreciate overall that they are honest and not just “everything is great because it’s Disney” (which a lot of other shows tend to do).

    Thanks. Frustratingly it has not shown up in my Apple a podcast feed yet. Looks like it was done as a different type of segment rather than using the best and worst of feed?

    I really wish they would consider those of us that don’t watch You Tube. No time to sit and watch videos. Much prefer the mobility of podcasts.

    I completely agree! I would love to watch these videos but I simply don't have the time. I love the mobility of podcasts vs youtube videos. I work in an environment that often doesn't have cell service or wifi so being able to download podcasts are crucial for my entertainment when I am able to listen.
