Jason Lethcoe started his career in animation working on Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” and his love of story continued as an author for young adult fiction, including “Zoom’s Academy” which made into the film “Zoom.” These days, Jason has teamed up with Disney publishing on “Tales from Adventureland” – a book series centered around the fabled theme park area. On this episode, Jason has plenty of tales of his own to share, including a cherished encounter with one of his literary heroes, Ray Bradbury.
