Jeff Kurtti and the Church of Walt in The Mouse Castle Lounge

In the latest episode of The Mouse Castle Lounge, I wrap up my three-part conversation with Disney historian Jeff Kurtti and we spend a lot of time talking about Walt Disney.

Not a bad way to finish an interview.

Walt Disney was a unique man of creative vision and drive who built an entertainment empire by taking risks and trusting his instincts. He made such an indelible impact on society and culture that, 46 years after his death, his influence can still be felt. Jeff and I talk about what made Walt tick, his very human foibles and the inevitable public backlash that came with all his success. There are those who trivialize Walt's accomplishments even now and to them we say, "You just don't get it."

The Mouse Castle Lounge can also be heard on iTunes and Stitcher.
