The DCOM Disaster!

About

Most ’90s kids, like Jon, Davey, and Devin, grew up loving the DCOM – the Disney Channel Original Movie – but their friend, Nick has never seen one. So, in order to complete the childhood he never had, they’re making him go through each one by order of release (mostly). Join them for a nostalgic romp through the Wonderful World of the Disney Channel, and, of course, they’re not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company (please, don’t sue them!)

Meet The hosts!

Jon

Jon, like most of DCOM Disaster, grew up with Disney Channel between the late 90s and early 2000s. Growing up in a sheltered, religious home, certain TV shows (and DCOMs) were restricted, so sometimes he, like Nick, is finally watching a DCOM for the very first time. While Nick is comparing certain movies and styles within the DCOM, Jon is there reliving his past trauma for your amusement.

Favorite DCOM: Johnny Tsunami

Davey

Davey was a devout DCOM watcher growing up. A fella of a certain era, when the internet was slowly creeping into our homes and hearts, and when people thought Neopets were cool, he’s ready to relive all of it with some of his favorite pals; the horror, the humor, and occasional beauty of the DCOM.

Favorite DCOM: Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge

devin

Excellence. Prestigious. A real fucking class act. These aren’t words that we would use to describe Devin, even if he wants us to. We’re not sure where Devin came from, he was just in the group chat one day. We think he wondered in from the woods. When he’s not watching DCOMs and tip-toeing the line, he’s found working with cannabis or managing a glass shop. When Devin was 14, an old swamp witch threw a half ounce of the dankest, stinkiest herb she had on hand and yelled “YOU’LL BE STONED FOR ALL TIME!!” He’s been struggling with the curse ever since. He creates the outlines for each episode, guiding the boys through the movie like Virgil through a Mickey Mouse-sponsored Hellworld.

Favorite DCOM: Cadet Kelly

nick

Nick was born on an old North Carolina farm, where the only things they had for entertainment were cat bones and high-powered rifles. He never saw anything until just recently — yes, he was blinded throughout his childhood by an early exposure to ‘The Garbage Pail Kids Movie’ — even though somehow he’s the film critic at Vanyaland and has written for The Boston Phoenix in the past. So, he never saw a DCOM growing up. Some would say he’s the whole reason the group is doing this Podcast, but Nick likes to think that they’re doing it because they’re all a bunch of pals and they’re gonna one day let him pet the rabbits. But little do they know that if he snaps a single neck, they’re gonna gat his ass out in a field somewhere in Framingham.

Favorite DCOM: Tune in to find out!

jake

While technically not a host, Jake’s spends hours every week painstakingly cutting out all the burps, farts, and jokes that fall flat (trust me, there are some stinkers), bringing you the quality DCOM Disaster content you know and love. When not lost in the abyss of ProTools, Jake can be found complaining about Dad Rock and Big Pharma.

Favorite DCOM: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
