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...
