On this week’s episode we talk to Ed Squair. Ed is an archivist, writer, video producer and a pop culture and toy collector. He has so many interesting stories, for the first time, we had to break this interview into 2 episodes! In part 1 we talk about his LA story, how he came to call it home. His 21 year career at Disney, where he spent most of it in the photo archives and then went on to create content for the company’s social media launch and later their original video department.
