Bullying in the Arts Ep3 - Gabe Eggerling from "Jedi Camp"

On last week's Web Series Watch, Patty J. Robinson told me about Jedi Camp, a web series about bullying. I offered to interview the creator but he suggested the kids! Today's interviewee, Gabe Eggerling makes me feel like a slacker. And he's the voice of Shroeder!
