Bruce Broughton – Composer for EPCOT Classics
Bruce was kind enough to be the very first guest on Dreamfinders and it remains an amazing episode as he discusses visiting Disneyland in July 1955 during its first week open to the public, and his life working in TV and film, and the challenge of writing attraction music.
How Bowers – RetroWDW Podcast
If you love Disney podcasts, then you might know How from the RetroWDW podcast. In the episode, he talks about sneaking into MGM Studios while it was under construction, among many other great stories!
Jeff Kurtti – Disney Author
If you’ve ever read a book about Disney, there is a good chance it was written by Jeff Kurtti. A writer with a long history with the company, he’s seen it all and talks about answering fan mail for Imagineering, sitting in meetings with Michael Eisner and Jeffery Katzenberg, as well as becoming both friends and the official “Shermanologist” to the great Sherman brothers!
Tom Corless – WDWNT
Does the man need an introduction if you’re reading his site? Probably not, but Tom sat down with Nathan to talk about the origins of WDW News Today and his passion for the parks.
Imagineer Kevin Rafferty
Love the Tower of Terror? That was Kevin’s idea. Not only that, but he would, over a 40 year career with Disney, go on to write and develop such iconic wonders as Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Test Track, Toy Story Midway Mania, It’s Tough to Be A Bug, Mickey’s Philharmagic, Rockin’ Roller Coaster… and that’s just to name a few.

Author and Imagineer Christopher Merritt co-authored “Marc Davis: In His Own Words” as a tribute to the legendary Imagineer who was also a mentor. He chats with Nathan about Marc’s great impact on Disney and what he was like as a person.
