In this episode of WEDway Radio Matt and Nate are once again joined by Jeff Pepper to discuss some Disney history. This week we are going deep in the realm of Disney history to discover the story of Walt Disney in Kansas City. In looking at this chapter the focus is really not just the Laugh O Gram Studio or the beginnings of Walt as an animator, but really the beginning of a career where Walt learned how to run a studio. He had several jobs, starting as an artist at Pesmin-Rubin Commercial art Studio and working for a long time at the Kansas City Slide Company, but he also ventured out on his own a few times to start different businesses including The Iwerks-Disney Studio, Kaycee Studios and then finally the Laugh O Gram Studio. We discuss all of these endevours, and many of the artists that got their start with Disney as well. Check out the Show Notes to this and every episode of WEDway Radio.
