This week, we welcome back the incomparable Ashley Eckstein. Ashley previously appeared on Episode 32, along with Vanessa Marshall and Dee Bradley Baker, to chat about Star Wars Rebels.
I wrote about Her Universe Press shortly after it was announced at this year’s New York Comic-Con, and so far it looks pretty fantastic. It was a surprising direction to take the brand, to be sure, but Ashley has clearly put a lot of thought and love into it–and it shows.
This is a great conversation that goes beyond fandom as we talk about running your own business, taking risks, and following your passions.
I thought this would also be a good time to share this unexpected highlight of my daughter’s first time at Star Wars Weekends earlier this year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We were sitting in the shade, having a snack, when I spied Ashley coming around a corner. I didn’t waste any time making the below a reality. I’m no dummy. Zoey + Ahsoka = Best Daddy Ever.
At the end of this episode, Justin and I talk about some voiceover “work” I did for Dreamworks Animation’s Dinotrux. If you really want to hear me as a Reptool, you can do so here.
