325: Jim Henshaw - the Voice of Wicket the Ewok

Jim Henshaw, voice of Wicket the Ewok (Ewoks TV Series) and Tenderheart Bear (The Care Bears), joins Richard and Sarah to discuss his career not only as a voice actor, but a writer for series like Top Cops, Friday the 13th and BeastMaster. The discussion even ventures into this cancel culture we’ve been experiencing due to social media. As someone who works in the entertainment industry, Jim has a unique perspective. Who knew this discussion would get so serious??   Disney+ released both seasons of Ewoks on April 2, so we’ve been binging to our heart’s content. But do you know the history behind this series? We prepare you with a little deep dive into the making of the show. Also on this episode:   Disneyland Resort will reopen ticket sales on April 15!
