Epcot's Soviet Union Pavilion - The World That Never Was Season Two #3

Epcot's Soviet Union Pavilion - The World That Never Was Season Two #3

As Epcot was evolving during it's first few years in the 1980s, plans were proposed left and right for new attractions and pavilions. One of those pavilions, the Soviet Union, came out just as the planned country was falling apart and left in an economic collapse, and I know this was about money to some degree, but could we have also lost a Russian pavilion to feelings of fear through decades of propaganda and paranoia? This episode takes a look at why sometimes culture is overlooked because of politics and why we should focus less on politics and more on the human story.

Here is my original article focusing more on the pavilion: http://bit.ly/2sYmXtu

I reference this video in the podcast and if you are interested in the culture of West Hollywood's Russian community, it is definitely a good watch:
