FROM THIS EPISODE

This week we head to some of the happiest places on Earth: Amusement Parks! Jonathan Goldtsein revisits the one he worked at as a teen on the Jersey Shore, Ira Glass has the inside scoop on those impossible carnival games and Dave Dickerson talks to a guy who grew up inside a real theme park. All that plus stories from you, our listeners, about your fondest, or more often, weirdest amusement park memories.
