In this rollicking episode, Alice and Buddy set course for Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean to discuss its complex relationship with history, and the ways it has gradually changed over time. How have audience tastes and needs changed over time? Has the attraction changed sufficiently to reflect them? What, exactly, is this attraction’s theme? What is its relationship to history? What is its relationship to its own history?
This one’s a bit long! Keep a weather eye open—there be squalls ahead.
Those Happy Places is produced by Alice White and edited by Buddy Duquesne. Our theme music is "Golden Gate" by The California Feetwarmers, featuring Phil Alvin. Additional music comes from Podington Bear, available through the Free Music Archive.
