Kaufman back to the show to discuss his latest book “Walt Disney’s Silly Symphonies: A Companion to the Classic Cartoon Series.” We talk with Kaufman about the cartoons’ relevance to the society of their time and Walt Disney personally, and discuss the music, the marvelous animation, and their place in the history of the Walt Disney Studios. Next, Kristen reports on Geek Girl Con 2016 in Seattle, and reports on the Women of Pixar panel. Also, a listener reports on the Bob Gurr Bus Tour of Walt’s L.A.
