Meet The Hosts

Dr. Brainard and the other professors at Medfield College have put together this brief questionnaire
to give us a deeper look into the minds of our society members. Find out what’s really going on
in their heads. You may be surprised, you may be shocked but chances are you’ll find that
it all tracks with what you already know of us.

 

Name, Rank, Cereal?
Robert, Founder, Raisin-Nut-Bran thanks to my grandparents

Favorite Disney relic you own and why?
Gray, embroidered, MGM Studios shirt, circa 1995. Gifted to me by a Crawford. It was just really comfortable, and the red embroidered MGM Studios logo was pretty sweet.

Scariest Disney ride?
Tie - Dinosaur (aka Countdown to Extinction) first time riding it. Sheer terror on my face. Tower of Terror. Perfect balance of fear and height or height and fear as the case may be.

Scariest Disney film?
Watcher in the Woods freaked me out.

Nescafe or Joffrey’s Coffee?

Cheap BBQ sauce, like KC Original being scalded that and victory.
