Welcome to “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. 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!

Your Hosts:

Buddy Duquesne is an educator and media scholar out of the Bay Area, California. He's a consummate host, an audio editor, and the recipient of one too many college degrees. His hobbies include listening to Mashup Albums, re-watching the Star Wars films, and flying kites. His dream is to one day co-host a podcast about theme parks with his best friend, Alice White (Oh cool, it's happening!).


Alice White is an actor, writer, story editor, and podcast host out of Long Beach, CA. She’s also a theme park enthusiast, improvisational comedian, tarot reader, and a story teller. She hosts the podcasts Rogue Fun, Have Fun Storming the Castle, and of course Those Happy Places. Alice has a master’s degree in publishing and has been a proud member of SAG-AFTRA since 1997.
