Film and televisionEdit
Snyder has made guest appearances on ER, Brothers and Sisters, and Gary Unmarried. Snyder also appeared in Saul of the Mole Men, The Young Person's Guide to History, and Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell. He guest appeared on the Christian live action television show Come On Over.
Snyder co-hosts the Ken P.D. Snydecast with Ken "Plumey" Plume, which is a free podcast. The first episode of the show appeared on the internet on January 11, 2006. The show was initially produced out of IGN and is produced out of Fred Entertainment. The show originally followed a "weekly" episode distribution  but has been more sporadic in later years. In addition to Snyder and Plume, guests have included Doc Hammer, Paul Sabourin, and Jay Wade Edwards. In late 2013, Dana began co-hosting the podcast Drunk on Disney with Guy Hutchinson, and Bart Scott, author of Ears of Steel. The podcast centers around Disney parks, Disney trips, and Disney memories; all while the boys make a Disney-themed cocktail and literally try to get "Drunk on Disney".
