Candid Conversation with Voice Actors Jess Harnell, Jim Cummings, and Rob Paulsen on Autism
Though you may not recognize these names up front, you're highly likely to know the characters they have voiced. Listen to this podcast that they recorded of a conversation with these men on the topic of autism.
Winnie the Pooh and Yakko and Wakko Warner Discuss Autism at GraniteCon 2013
From GraniteCon 2013, we have an uncommon and memorable experience with some incredibly iconic people to share. Our friend, Gary Sohmers (CEO of IMAGE and pop culture expert), sits down with Rob Paulsen (“The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius,” “Animaniacs,” “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”), Jim Cummings (“Darkwing Duck,” “The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh,” “Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers”), and Jess Harnell (“Drawn Together,” “Animaniacs,” “Wreck-It Ralph”). What starts as a candid conversation about Thomas and Jenni’s son, Lex, morphs into a round-table discussion from Rob, Jim, Jess, and Gary on personal experiences they’ve had within the autism community. What ensues is a touching, sincerely personal talk about the opportunities and changes that are developing for individuals and families living with autism.
A big “thank you” to these fantastic men for taking the time to talk with us, Mary Dumas and Gary Sohmers for moderating, and to GraniteCon and Jeff Zannini for facilitating.
The first couple minutes of the podcast were never meant to be published. The conversation, however, was so organic that we decided it needed to be included.
