    Not that you are reading this thread Charles, but if you are I wish you good luck in whatever you are doing now!!! And maybe drop a line about where to find you on social media if you have a presence there. I will miss your contributions to the DIS!!!!!

    Charles is on both Facebook and Twitter but his last post on either was about 2 months ago.

    So my worst suspicions were confirmed. Charles is no longer with the Dis. Bummer.
    Well I wish him the best and know he will do well in whatever he pursues.
    But how cool is that Jackie responding to one of my questions?
    Like a star of one of your favorite TV shows giving you a shout out. Which is kind of what it was.

    That's such a shame. I really enjoyed Charles's input and perspective on all of the shows, as well as his writing.

    I will also miss Charles contributions. I really enjoyed him on the podcasts - particularly the dining show. He was a more adventurous eater than most others. (I don't think anyone else had goat as their first choice ever before in a dining review.) My family and I tend to like experimenting with new foods and it was nice having the viewpoint of someone else who seemed happy to explore. I still enjoy the show without him, but it is certainly less useful to me. Pete, Steve and Fiasco all have their quirks (no seafood, no cheese, prefers basic food, etc.) which is probably helpful for all the pickier eaters out there, but for those of us who are at the other end of the spectrum, Charles provided an interesting viewpoint.

    Decidedly, on the somewhat petty side - I will miss reading Charles' articles. There is a tendency to seriously abuse exclamation points in DIS articles and it drives me a little batty. Charles did not do this and I really appreciated it. LOL

    And Pete no carbs!
    Which in WDW is like no carbs in a pizzeria.
    Though it has done him well.
    And yes I know there are other choices but still...
    Charles and I shared some of the same idiosyncrasies so that was helpful.
    Steve joins in on the stage at Hoop Dee Doo but I would run from Pioneer Hall screaming.

    I get the feeling that Charles is mad at me and has been avoiding the show just to spite me.....

    He is a very talented writer. I hope he pursues that and it is part of his next adventure.

    I wanted to correct this.

    His last actual tweet was 2 months ago but he has replied to other people's posts, including one just a couple of hours ago, so he is active on there.

    Thanks for letting us know. As a Listener since the beginning, I thought he was a really great addition to the show. Glad to hear he left on good terms.

    While I do realize it is nobody’s business, it would be nice if the Podcast team at least mentioned when someone left or was leaving. (Especially if On good terms). So many of us see you guys like family even if we have never met you.

    I agree. A simple "So and so is no longer with the DIS team" is sufficient. It is none of our business why someone is gone but it would be nice to know they've left.

    Maybe they could put a picture of them on the screen and then have it disintegrate like at the end of "Infinity War".

    "Mr. Werner, I don't feel so good...."

    *sigh*...

    You misspelled it. The correct way is "nooB".

    But I guess that's the kind of thing we should expect from a nooB, since you are one.

    Charles was a tremendous addition to the DIS team and I will definitely miss his contributions to your written content and especially your youtube content.

    Pete's got a real good eye for talent, and i know he doesn't specifically hire FOR the podcast/youtube shows but he is usually very good at finding young motivated people who bring a fresh perspective. Will be difficult to replace Charles though.
