Episode 8 Cover.jpg

In this episode, Alice and Buddy discuss the Disneyland Resort's two game-type rides--Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and Toy Story: Midway Mania! How do these rides compare to actual games? What is their storytelling goal? How much trash talk can they fit into a one-hour podcast episode? Will they be able to avoid becoming a Toy Story Podcast? Find out by listening today!

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.
