Show notes:

A Tragic Week for Orlando and the World

Dan and I begin the podcast by paying tribute to the 49 innocent people who sadly lost their lives last week in the shooting at the Pulse nightclub near Downtown Orlando. We then chat about the other tragic event that happened in Orlando last week, the alligator attack resulting in the death of a child at The Grand Floridian at Walt Disney World.

Dan and I chat through the changes that Walt Disney World are making in light of both of these tragic events.
