#36 - C.J. Hirschfield of Children’s Fairyland

July 6, 2015

C.J. Hirschfield has been the executive director of Children's Fairyland, Oakland's storybook theme park for children, since 2002. She's led the park through a period of rebuilding and navigated changing technology and local demographics, all while honoring Fairyland's 65-year history. C.J. and I talked about why she left the cable TV industry (where she had a two-decade career) to come to Fairyland, how the park has changed in the time she's been there, and what makes something "Fairylandish".
