Episode 23: Theme Parks, Permanence, and the Speed of Change

Episode 23 Cover.jpg

In this timely episode, Alice and Buddy discuss the ways Theme Parks are both permanent and impermanent spaces, known for their signature attractions, and yet constantly expected to change. How do theme parks differ from other media in the ways they evolve over time? What examples of changing attractions do we haveā€”and how did they handle change positively or negatively? And finally, what happens when an attraction comes back from being removed?

Plus, the announcement of our very exciting Patreon!
