Last week was a big week for us. The podcast posted it’s 100th episode. We also had some other great content plus we had a great Disney film, Zootopia, make it’s way to the theaters, so let’s get cracking with this week’s recap. If you missed anything on the site, this is a great time to check out everything that happened last week!

Podcasts
Modern Mouse Radio #100: Song of the South – Josh was joined by James from the Creepy Kingdom podcast and Keith from The Disney Project to talk about the most controversial topic yet on Modern Mouse Radio. Song of the South is known as the inspiration for Splash Mountain and has featured some great songs, most notably “Zip-a-Dee-Do-Da”, but the film has been locked away for 30 years with Disney never looking to release it again. The guys discuss the issues with this film, racism, the current culture’s political correctness, and more.
