This week The Season Pass Podcast is back at the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) Summit from April of 2014 to have an in-depth interview with writer and themed entertainment veteran Kile Ozier.  Kile has worked in the industry for over 20 years and has helped in creating great projects such as Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, the TEA NextGen initiative, and much more.  The discussion also goes deep into the new world of themed entertainment business, which has exploded globally, and dives into what responsibilities the industry has when working with low tolerance countries and governments for human rights. It’s not a political look; it’s a discussion on choices, acceptance, and integrity. A very powerful question is presented on this podcast. Take a listen.
