This Orlando based, uncensored podcast is all about the theme park adventures of Sarah and Kyle Dierking.
 
A mentally unstable genius, Victor Frankenstein, inspired by the dreams of ancient alchemists and empowered by modern science, creates a humanoid but fails to nurture and educate it after it comes to life. It wanders alone into a hostile world, where fear of its size and ugliness subjects it to violence and ostracism, which in time it learns to blame upon its maker. As compensation for its suffering, it demands that he create a companion with whom to share its outcast life. Moved by the crea ...

Pattern recognition, recency and familiarity biases can impact our perceptions and responses. If you're hiring a librarian and the applicant doesn't look like your preconceived notion of what a librarian looks like, does that impact your assessment of them? If your high school bully was named Toby, does that affect your impressions of other Tob ...…
 
I think you guys have figured this out by now but we just go away for a while and then come back abruptly. At least we have a lot to talk about. We took a trip out west to one of our favorite cities, San Francisco. We spent a day and a half in Napa taking a chance to go to the Francis Ford Coppola Winery and to Del Dotto Vineyards. Del Dotto st ...…
 
The odds are very high that any people you’re leading, and from whom you’re trying to get buy-in for change, have had leaders like you try it with them before. On average, it’s likely that those previous efforts and results have not been great. Overt and obvious opposition is easy to spot and you're compelled to actively deal with it but how do ...…
 
Once again we are back from an unannounced hiatus but this time our lack of content was caused by something much more dire. After Sarah’s ankle reconstruction surgery she spent 4 days in the ICU due to a massive blow clot in each of her lungs. Everything is good now and she is almost back to normal but it was touch and go for a while there. On ...…
 
Toby Fox, developer of the the beloved Undertale, dropped a new “game” on Halloween called Deltarune. Many are speculating that this is a playable trailer for Toby’s next game set in the Undertale universe. In other news, I have contracted an illness known as RDR2. I hate the main character but for some reason I keep playing… weird.…
 
First, we checked out the new show to take over the Bill and Ted Stage at HHN, Academy of Villains. Next we head over to EPCOT for the Food and Wine Festival before finishing off with the Mike Shinoda concert at the House of Blues Orlando.By I Love You... I Know.
 
Howl-O-Scream this year in Tampa was incredible. With Universal right down the road, Tampa needs to match or exceed the standards put up by the halloween giant. The production value is on par and in a lot of instances the scares are better. If you have never been, now is the time to go. Just maybe think about getting a “Front of the Line Pass” ...…
 
This year everyone is talking about Stranger Things and the house at HHN 28 does not disappoint. We follow up with our remaining 5 houses including Seeds of Extinction, Stranger Things, Poltergeist, Trick r Treat, and Halloween 4. These houses are gorgeous and really put you in the story they are portraying like standing in the middle of Joyce’ ...…
 
The best Disney deal is upon us. Not only do you get into the Magic Kingdom for way less but you get a butt load of candy and an incredible show and parade lineup to boot. This year they added some live actors to some of the rides and changed up a couple others. There are also special snacks and treats as well as exclusive meet and greets that ...…
 
Haunt season is upon us so time for us to come out of hiding. We went to HHN Orlando on opening night and are bringing back our takes from 5 of the 10 houses this year. Slaughter Sinema, Dead Exposure: Patient Zero, Scary Tales, Carnival Graveyard: Rust in Peace, and Blumhouse.By I Love You... I Know.
 
We checked out the fairly new speakeasy: Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. If you have ever been to a speakeasy before just imagine that but with a unique Disneyfied-tiki flare. The drinks are stellar, the theming is perfect and every drink comes with a show.By I Love You... I Know.
 
Our main topic is our weekend trip to New York. We were actually able to catch quite a few shows in that short amount of time. We saw “My Fair Lady”, Hello, Dolly!”, “Wicked” and “Boys in the Band”. We also went to the observation deck at One World Trade Center and ate the rest of the time.By I Love You... I Know.
 
New Pokemon for Switch is a real thing!!! Lets go Pikachu and Lets go Eevee are real and we are pretty excited. The Pokemon Go integration looks non-intrusive and the changes they made we can live with especially since we are getting a traditional mainline Pokemon game for Switch next year. Also, a new Fallout is coming in the form of Fallout 7 ...…
 
Rounding out our L.A. trip was a VIP tour at Universal Studios Hollywood. The VIP tour is by far the BEST way to do Universal Hollywood. If you have been to Universal Orlando, you won’t be surprised by any of the rides however the studio tour is well worth the trip. We were able to see sets from Superstore, Back to the Future, War of the Worlds ...…
 
We are getting pumped about the rumors circulating around the new Pokemon game for Switch, which of course leads us down a nostalgic path of days of Pokemon past. We also talk about going to see Deadpool 2 and Book Club. Don’t worry, no spoilersBy I Love You... I Know.
 
Continuing from last week, we pick up on day two of our L.A. trip: Disney’s California Adventure. Since Hollywood Studios is one of our favorite parks in Orlando, we were dying to get into California Adventure. Even if we were only able to get on Radiator Springs Racers and Guardians of the Galaxy Mission Breakout this trip would have been a su ...…
 
So… we went through the Walking Dead experience at Universal Hollywood and our consensus is that it is HHN for babies. I’m also not sure but I think we are now going to Wild Adventures in Valdosta…By Kyle Dierking.
 
We took a trip to LA to check out the other side of our Orlando theme parks. First on our list was Disneyland! After years of hearing how it wasn’t as good as at home we just had to see for ourselves. Anybody that says that is lying to you. Period. Disneyland is much smaller but with that comes an entirely different feel and experience. Come he ...…
 
Hey Guys, Just testing the podcast feed for our new show ParkHoppersBy ParkHoppers.
 
We went to LA and did way too much stuff. Not only did we go to Disney and Universal but also managed to take an LA tour of celebrity homes, the walk of fame, the Chinese theater, Beverly Hills, the Famers Market and much more. We ate at In-N-Out, saw the Santa Monica Pier and walked the Venice Beach Boardwalk. We are also starting a NEW podcas ...…

Every AAA game has a music score but do many gamers realize what is playing in the background while they are mowing through demons on the surface of Hell or sparing the life of a poor defenseless Froggit?By Kyle Dierking.
 
We are finally giving you the scoop on our Halloween on the High Seas Honeymoon aboard the Disney Dream.By Kyle Dierking.

We talk about the announcements from the most recent Nintendo Direct. Everything from Smash to Luigi’s MansionBy Kyle Dierking.
 
Since getting our Disney passes we have been trying to try more of the in-park food in the Disney theme parks. So far everything we have eaten inside Disney has been really good, like actually worth your money good. Between Disney, Universal and Seaworld who comes out on top when it comes to food? Is it even worth spending your money?…
 
Not sure if discussions on mass shootings and Disney fireworks shows go together but here we are. After the mass shooting in Parkland, FL we heard once again that it is violent video games, tv, and movies that cause people to commit atrocities. Don’t let them try to change the subject this is about gun control, NOT video games. To lighten thing ...…

Nintendo has its reaction to VR and it comes in a cardboard box, well… is a cardboard box. We also talk about Sarah’s love of Animal Crossing Pocket Camp.By Kyle Dierking.
 
We did a couple cool things over the holiday weekend. We went to St. Augustine to try out the St. Augustine Distillery as well as the St Augustine Wild Reserve, where they care for a number of big cats and wolves. Then we went to Disney Springs to try the new VR experience “Secrets of the Empire.” If you have not tried it we highly recommend it ...…
 
We bought Disney World annual passes and the first thing we did was head to Hollywood Studios to check out Tower of Terror for the first time. Sorry about the audio again, I am not sure if it is the mic, cable, or channel but I will figure it out and make it great the next time!By I Love You... I Know with Kyle and Sarah.
 
Did you miss us? We missed you! Come check out why we haven’t recorded in nearly six months.By I Love You... I Know with Kyle and Sarah.
 
Our longevity, health, quality of life and personal productivity are due 30% to luck and 70% to our choices and behaviours. What are 10 choices we can make, any one of which would actually diminish our odds of decline or disaster? How wrong are we when it comes to estimating where our problems will occur?…
 
What are the habits of those who do live longer and remain happy and meaningfully productive for longer? What are the signs to watch out for that maybe now is the time to start taking control rather than continue to rely on your body's and mind's good luck? What clues are there that the fad you're reading about is snake-oil quackery?…
 
“Sleep is a waste of time.” – Thomas Edison (Inventor of the lightbulb, possibly the single item most responsible for messing up our Circadian Rhythms.) Nah. Though researchers don’t know the exact mechanism, it seems that chronic lack of sleep causes inflammation, elevates blood pressure and heart rate, and affects glucose levels, leading to a ...…
 
Poor sleep can increase your risk of a stroke by 400%. Ineffective sleep makes you less productive immediately, not at 3pm the next day. If you pour red bull into your laptop, it doesn't work as well. The same goes for your body and brain.
 
Much time, effort and expense is wasted on hiring the wrong people. Job interviews are critically important, yet the vast majority of people conducting job interviews have received zero training at job interviewing. Here is a walk-through a simple but consistently effective approach to conducting job interviews, either solo or as part of a pane ...…
 
Pro tips are coming your way. Sarah and I got a room at the Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Studios Orlando. by doing that, we were able to save $800 in Express Pass costs.By I Love You... I Know with Kyle and Sarah.

You can check out the Tony performances of Hello Dolly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-3SEz7QFGA War Paint: https://www.youtub ...…
 
There is a slight sync issue with the video on this one that I can’t seem to fix. Trust me I tried for 3 hours. If it is too much for you, feel free to check out the audio version above. At any rate, Sarah and I got to ride Race Through New York with Jimmy Fallon. It was really good but the best part was the queue.…
 
Who won E3? We think it’s Nintendo… Yes… That Nintendo. They gave us the most surprises this year, most everything we saw this year we already knew about or could extrapolate from other sources. We give you our takes on a couple of the other conferences such as Sony and Bethesda.By I Love You... I Know with Kyle and Sarah.
 
This year E3 is open to the public. That means that anyone who wanted to go could get a ticket whereas before it was a closed event that was very press centric. This could potentially blow up in the industries’ face. We also talk about the rumors surrounding Universal Orlando’s Super Nintendo World expansion.…
 
We found another one folks, another victim of outrage culture but this time it is focused towards Nintendo and their new vuluptuous fighter from Arms, Twintelle. Tanya DePass turns to Mic saying she “couldn't get excited like everyone else. All [she] could think about was her hair. Specifically, the fact she's a brown, female character with wea ...…
 
Last week we were off because Kyle was busy getting that Bachelor’s Degree. We also talk about a video gamer community Kyle has been a part of where all they talk about is Watch Dogs 2.By I Love You... I Know with Kyle and Sarah.
 
We discuss this archaic view point that video game publishers on Fall video game sales. The majority of gamers are not kids anymore, there is no reason that we need to "wait for Christmas" when we make our own money and buy or own games. We also get into the culture of "release now, then fix the problems."…
