Experience the unexpected in our latest episode where Christine and I serve up a lively discussion on pickleball—a sport that’s skyrocketing in popularity faster than a cross-court smash. With dedicated venues popping up nationwide, like Sip and Pickle and Dinks and Dingers, we critically examine the sustainability of these niche spaces. Are they here to stay or merely a temporary spectacle? Tune in for a compelling analysis of the potential market bubble and the fate of these spirited establishments.

The conversation takes a magical twist as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Disney’s Accelerator Program, shining a light on the companies poised to transform the entertainment landscape. From AudioShake’s AI sound separation to Nuro’s autonomous delivery, we speculate how these innovations could captivate audiences and enhance Disney’s already mesmerizing offerings. We cap off our journey in the charming town of Cheyenne, Wyoming, where the Derby Club’s virtual reality and themed entertainment offer a refreshing glimpse into the future of community-based amusement. Join us for a look at the surprising impact of inventive entertainment in smaller communities, and the quest for the ultimate immersive experience.
