Who needs true love’s first kiss when you can have a goth fairy godmother? Today—for our 20th episode!—we’re joined by Shannon of Network 1901 and Dale of the Disney Culture Club to discuss the original 1950’s Disney Sleeping Beauty and its cultural context. As well, we’ll cover 2014’s retelling Maleficent!
