115: Tearing Down Disney with Robert Evans

Released Monday, 22nd June 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Today we take a night call about problematic Disneyland rides and suggest alternatives. Should we replace the torn down Splash Mountain with a Princess And The Frog Ride? (Yes) What is the most racist ride at Disneyland? Can theme parks be divided from themes of imperialism? Then it’s a listener query about Synanon, the self help drug rehab retreat on the Santa Monica strand that turned into a cult in the seventies. For our second half we are joined by Behind The Bastards host Robert Evans to discuss citizen journalism during the uprisings era! Robert discusses covering the Pacific Northwest, the Boogaloo creeps, showing up to face fascists. Then he takes our listeners’ questions about storing rations in small spaces, how to combat fascists flyering in your town, and where the best place to be during the revolution is (hint: among friends). Plus Molly exposes Robert as a full on pumpkin spice Fallhead!
