The Yippie Invasion of Disneyland
by Todd James Pierce
The other multi-part podcast I produced over the summer was focused on the Yippie Invasion at Disneyland. The Yippies–generally politically-oriented hippies organized by Abbie Hoffman–staged a large demonstration at Disneyland during the summer of 1970, a demonstration that escalated to a point where 150 officers in riot gear faced off against teenagers and young adults on Main Street. The 90-minute, three-part series features information from many unpublished interviews.
The three-part series develops over Episodes 28 to 30.
