This is THE episode you’ve been waiting for. Join us as we perform full audio dramas of THREE classic Ewok children’s books from the 1980s. First it’s the literary staple, The Baby Ewok Picnic Surprise. Do Ewoks make good babysitters? And what about these secret berries Ewok can’t get enough of? That is followed by the darker middle chapter, The Ewok Who Was Afraid. This is a daring tale of cruelty, courage and magic gems that aren’t really magic. Finally we close with the controversial Three Cheers for Kneesaa! A tale of empowerment, archery and the originator of #NotMyWicket. So come along as we travel to that forest moon and celebrate the love!
Back at Celebration Chicago, we attended a Star Wars Radio Drama panel hosted by fans and college professors, John & Maria Jose Tenuto. We were looking forward to the panel but we didn’t know how much it would actually BLOW OUR MINDS. This week we are thrilled to have John & Maria on the show as they go over the incredible history of the radio dramas, Brian Daley’s story and so so much more. How did the Star Wars radio drama save NPR? What was it’s origin? Why did something as visual was Star Wars feel so at home in strictly audio? All that and more in this epic & seriously fascinating episode!
So get out that frozen Ho-Ho, celebrate the love & listen today!
