Our Super-Sized Halloween episode covers Hong Kong Disneyland’s Mystic Manor, The new Science Behind Pixar exhibit, Star Wars Rebels music and more!
Ghost Host Dave Skale is back to tell us about Mystic Manor, Hong Kong Disneyland’s “version” of the Haunted Mansion and why it’s not haunted. Professor Kate Lingley joins us to give us some background on Chinese art history and just why Mystic Manor is so different from The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. (30:45)

Are you near SoCal? Well, get excited because “The Science Behind Pixar” Exhibit just opened at the California Science Center in downtown LA and runs through April 9, 2017. This is a hands-on exhibit that showcases the science, technology, engineering and math behind PIXAR films. We share with you interviews with members of the Pixar team. They told us some fascinating things we can’t wait to share with you. (1:43:20)
