Ep. 61 – Disney films: Animated vs. Live-action with Special Guest Katie Epp!

We are back! Today on The Happy Xen Podcast, we are taking a look at animated Disney films vs. their live-action counterparts with special guest, (and self-professed Disney super-fan), Katie Epp! Our homework was to watch 3 animated and 3 live action Disney films and talk about what we like, what we don’t and what just flat out doesn’t work. It’s an interesting discussion with each of us having differing opinions on each. Where do you stand on the debate? Break out those clam-shell VHS tapes, fire up Disney+, and buckle up for another Xennial nostalgia trip on The Happy Xen Podcast!

Show Notes:
