Disney Fans Rejoice; A Year in Pandemia | Mar. 17
On the March 17 episode of SoCal Update, KPCC Arts and Entertainment Reporter Mike Roe discusses Disney’s announcement about reopening its Southern California theme parks. KCET’s Managing Site Editor Daniel Medina shares highlights of a COVID-19 timeline reflecting on the past year of our lives.
