Episode 15: The Jungle Cruise, Comedy, and Colonialism
In this wild episode, Buddy and Alice explore the connection between Disneyland's Jungle Cruise and Colonialist Literature. How are these influences presented uncritically by Adventureland's oldest ride? What is the role of the Skipper in interpreting its current meaning?
Featuring a voicemail from Charles Gustine of the Iconography Podcast!
