Monster Kid Radio

Derek is joined by the head mouse wranglers at Disney, Indiana, Tracey and Scott Morris, to discuss a movie from 1994 - Ed Wood (dir. Tim Burton). Yes, we realize that historically, it's not very accurate. And, yes, we know it plays fast and loose with the portrayals of some of our monster kid heroes. But, yes, we still love the movie.
