Disney

LISTEN HERE:

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Disneyland is a wonderful place where children's dreams come true. For a price. We all know going to Disney or any theme park ain't cheap, but if everything is so expensive, why do they pay their employees so little? Is the happiest place on Earth, making people poor? Do people care? Why do we feed into the commercialism? Because it just makes you so damn happy, thats why.

Joining Amber and Ed this week is Roast Battle comedian and former Disneyland employee Nicole Becannon.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Sometimes being alone is all you need to relax, but other times people can go crazy and let loneliness can creep in and make you sad.  Whether you are alone in another town, or just don't have anyone to hang out with where you live, solitude can get the best of you.  Listen to how the Brighter Side deals with it.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Out of every race on Earth no one has had it as hard as The Native Americans. They received maybe the worst genocide this world has ever seen, yet they still have resolve, honor, and respect. Let's examine what has happened to these people. They have been through so much we could not unpack it all in one episode, in PT 1 we talk their plight when the Spanish Inquisition came to America, how to talk to someone who descends from that culture, and what it's like now for Native Americans.

Joining Amber and Ed is Lakota Sioux comedian Jana Schmieding.

Also taking us out this week is a song from Mel Brooks' History of the World Part 1. "The Spanish Inquisition"
