Interesting interview.

I gotta say, Robert - I did not expect your voice to sound like that. I was expecting something more James Earl Jones-esque.

I hope I meet you at a bar sometime so we can talk theme parks all night (drinks on me).

Actually, when I did the interview, I had had surgery on my hand the day before (let's just say that if I want fresh-cut french fries in the future, I'm going to In-N-Out), so I'm going to blame the Vicodin and my lousy phone for my vocal tone.

Even though it was pretty much what I sound like... ;-)

You are the voice of the Nick Hotel tour right?

Yes, but I shot that the day of my sister's wedding, so I was also under stress.

See, I *always* have an excuse for my squeaky voice!

Good stuff.
Robert, ya know you have an open invite to be on another theme park podcast any time you want.

Great interview! I did not realize you are an academian as well as a theme park expert! I enjoyed the discussion very much. We would love to meet you if you ever come to Busch Gardens Europe for a visit. Keep up the good work - your site has been very entertaining and very, very helpful! Thanks, again.

Oh, Robert - I didn't mean your voice sounded squeaky in the interview, I meant I pictured you as some sort of entity, like the god of theme parks. Or the prophet of theme park advice. Somethin' along those lines.

Hey, I *can* do a spot-on Mr. Burns.

I really enjoyed the interview, thank you for posting it. It really was informative and enjoyable. I too didn't expect you to sound that way, you sound so "normal", lolol. I also thought you'd be like a radio sounding guy. LOL. (not that you're ABnormal, normal is good, not making fun at all!!;) You sounded fine. Did a good job!!)
