About

Terrific Recordings of Nothing (TRoN amongst friends) is an artisinally-crafted podcast woven from the random threads of thought from two guys who clearly have too much free time. It's a (roughly) weekly show covering Disney-related things (Parks, mostly) but isn't afraid to wander off into the woods on other topics from time to time. Glenn and Chris love to geek out on many geeky things. Give a listen and give us some feedback. We love to hear from fans.

Where to find us...

Hosts

Chris Grey

Technologist and collector of hobbies. Wishes he had a time machine so his sons could see the Epcot that blew his mind in 1984.

Glenn Welch

IT Manager, born and raised in NOLA, took a 13-year detour to Orlando, but I'm back in New Orleans for good (I think...). Disney and photography geek and co-host of tron.fm.
