You knew we were gonna do a show on this, right?
This week brings us an Alice filled extravaganza featuring the Minnie Minxes! This show completes that whole Alice book club thingy with the big fat cherry on top that is the wonderful Kim and Michelle! As part of our Alice discussion we talk about:
- Alice and Math
- Alice comedies
- All Saints Church Daresbury
- Blackpool, England (not to be confused with Lynn Lynn, City of Sin)
- Blackpool Alice darkride
- Grand Floridian pool
You’ll also hear a good deal of Alice music floating around in the background, as well as this fabulous Tom Lehrer number. And, of course, a very silly Nikki Minaj parody that’s been floating around in my head for about a year – it’s a bit rough but it seemed the perfect place to just drop it down. Enjoy!
So where else do you find Aliconian ideals or influence or wonder or nonsense on a great and grand scale….. Where does this, if at all, infiltrate your life? Anyone? Anyone?
This show will be magical for only a limited time! Well that’s kind of a lie. It’ll probably be here on the internets forever, long after we’re all gone. Unlike the dragon that flew over Fantasyland for the press that night. Not that we’re bitter or anything.
Jennifer wrote a column on Limited Time Magic for StudiosCental a while back. It’ll probably be around forever too. So you can read it anytime, really. No hurry.
Disneyland’s been getting a lot of press lately for temporary (but in most cases still ongoing) closure of several major attractions at both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure, due to OSHA violations. It was unfortunate timing; between these closures and other downtime for refurbishment, many Guests were left frustrated by unavailability of their favorite rides, and/or long lines as the parks struggled to keep up with demand under limited capacity on a busy Saturday. Contrary to early reports, Disney was not forced by OSHA to close the attractions; Disney chose to do so, after OSHA served notice to them regarding lack of progress on previous violations which still remained unaddressed.
On this week’s show, we discuss the recent OSHA citings at DL, call BS on the numbers at WDW and recognize the Evil Genius that may be RCID*!

This week, we discuss Walt Disney’s love of railroad trains, and other forms of track-based public transit.
This episode was inspired by the book Walt and the Promise of Progress City, by Sam Gennawey. We’ve got an extra copy to give away! To enter the giveaway, go to our Facebook page and comment on the post announcing this episode; after one week, we’ll pick a name at random to win the book.
We also are joined in this podcast not only by Trace and Greg, but also by the loudest pug in the wilderness, Roxxy. She’s especially noticeable at about 21 minutes into the show. Let me tell you, people who are light sleepers should not have pugs in the house.
