You’ve seen them speeding around Bay Lake with parasailers, tubers, and others. We sit down with Julie of the Sammy Duval Water Sports Center at the Contemporary resort. We hear about what it takes to run Disney World’s famous parasailing experiences. Second half of the show we begin with an interview with Van’s Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman. We discuss the entertainment – social awareness balance that edutainment is trying to find these days.
We talk chickens, tubing, coffin experiences, and Kava.
