After much badgering from Paul, and a 10-day trip to the Magic Kingdom, Jenny finally consents to take up authenticity. Paul’s not a fan of the concept when applied to culture, thinks it’s just a way to tell someone else that their taste is stupid. Jenny isn’t necessarily a defender of cultural authenticity, per se, but really thinks there needs to be a concise way to call out things that are fakey simulations, like Disney World’s Fake New Orleans or Fake Atlantic City. Especially when we should be concerned with maintaining and preserving Real New Orleans or Real Atlantic City. Listen to the debate and let us know what you think.
