Alaina's Disney series is back with an episode on the 4th and (so far) final theme park at Walt Disney World Resort: Disney's Animal Kingdom. Work began just after Hollywood Studios opened, and took 8 years and nearly a billion dollars to finish. Over a relatively short life this park has had it's own share of oddities and development, growing into one of the finest park experiences anywhere. Is the direct approach the best approach to make an attraction educational? Who really owns bones? Have we all been brainwashed by Happy Meals?

Grant starts October with a creepy topic. In 1947 a rancher thought he may have found pieces of a flying disk, and a military press release agreed. Over the decades to come this story blossomed into a wide-reaching global conspiracy with bodies, buried treasure, and the keys to every mystery since. How do legends develop? How does fact intersect with belief? Who names their child Trudy Truelove?

Alaina brings the show close to home. In fact, withing walking distance of our home! The Prairie Avenue District is a small part of Chicago's Near South Side neighborhood that was the hottest piece of real estate around at the end of the 19th century. We learn about the history of the neighborhood, some buildings that survive from the period, and some of the misadventures of their residents.

In the depths of the Depression, and the shadow of an earlier event, Chicago staged the A Century of Progress International Exposition, better known as the 1933 World's Fair. Alaina takes us through an overview of the Fair's conception, some notable exhibits, and the surviving remains. How much success comes down to blind luck? How much should seeing babies cost? How do you solve a problem like Mussolini?

Alaina brings us back to her Disney series, talking about things you won't find there anymore. Is Walt Disney World a living time capsule? What obligation is there to the memories of past guests? Why are some species of birds treated so differently?

Happy Anniversary honey bunches! We're going back to where our show began and hitting some of our favorite themes as Alaina teaches us about some famous shipwrecks of the Great Lakes! Each of these events has at least one folk song about them, too. How much history is lost on lakebeds? IF folk music preserves these stories, do musicians have a duty to the facts? Will anyone from Cleveland ever listen to our show again?

It's part 3 of our Disney series. Disney-MGM Studios opened in 1989, dedicated to the art, craft, and magic of the movies. Today it has a new name and new focus. Alaina teaches us about how the park came to be and how it transitioned. How does creativity shine through a web of license agreements and legal challenges? If the working studios were so needed at the time, why weren't they sustainable? How important is a consistency of experience in planning a park?

Happy Valentine's Day! In this holiday special, Alaina talks about the most romantic thing she knows: gruesome murder. How are movie gangsters different from the real guys? Why can't rival operations just get along? Who actually did the dang thing, anyway?

EPCOT

Alaina continues her Disney Parks series with an episode on Walt Disney World Resort's second gate: Epcot. Walt Disney's original idea for all that Florida land was a planned city so unique that the world would come to see how his people lived and worked. After his death, some of those ideas, and the name, were recycled to be a theme park that serves as a permanent World's Fair. Is high modernism the path to despotism? Even so, could it have worked? How can you hit a forever-moving target: the future? Who needs rides when you can visit 11 themed gift shops and drink?
