Welcome to the Patreon for podcast creators Buddy Duquesne and Alice White! We're so happy to have you. Please scroll around and check out the patron rewards. By supporting us on Patreon you're giving us the opportunity to bring you the podcast you love with improved sound and even more listener input and feedback, making this project better and giving you the chance to hear the topics that matter to you.

Not only will your patronage support the creation of our current content, but we'll constantly be expanding through our stretch goals--first with merchandise, and eventually with new Podcast series, crossovers with your favorite podcasters, written newsletters, an entire book, and eventually a cross-country journey to themed attractions of all kinds!

Our main show and our brainchild is called “Those Happy Places,” the podcast that treats Theme Parks, Rides, and Attractions like Literature! Consider this show not only a loving second look at your favorite rides, but a critical analysis at how technology, movement, and themed environments combine to tell the stories that attract hundreds of millions to theme parks every year. Those Happy Places seeks to apply the same level of discourse that you might see more commonly applied to films or literature to beloved attractions from around the world. We believe that such an important part of our culture deserves a good look, and we're dedicated to giving you, the listener, that look. We put out two episodes a month all about your favorite theme park rides from Disneyland and beyond. 

We've also announced the launch of an innovative new show called The Joust! It's a show that's part audio drama, part RPG that brings you live updates as the Kingdom of Caliano hosts its annual jousting tournament. Follow along as we publish daily updates of the tournament and let the cards decide the fate of the four knights who have come to compete. Publishing daily is going to be a challenge, but we're so excited to get this show off the ground. Cheer for your favorite knights and gasp along with the unfolding drama every day in February 2020!

Joining these happy podcasts is an old fan favorite Rogue Fun: A Podcast Story! Join Alice as she breaks down her favorite Star Wars movie (Rogue One) and gushes about why it deserves to be considered EVERYONE'S favorite Star Wars movie. Featuring color theories, character choreography, and lots and lots of tears, Rogue Fun is a positive, well thought out show dedicated to what we love about Star Wars and genre films in general. Stay tuned for new episodes coming March 2020!

Finally, join Buddy and his old friend Sarah Starling as they chronicle the creation of the world's most elaborate murder mystery party in Giving The Gift of Murder! they have been charged by a mysterious benefactor to host the greatest party ever thrown in December 2020, and they're documenting every step, starting with the history of the murder mystery genre! 

 As we launch a new show and keep developing our other shows to reach their greatest potential we rely on you, the patrons, to keep us going. Thank you so much for reading this and supporting us!
