Edward James Olmos is one of the most legendary actors in film and television history. For the first time ever, Olmos talks about battling throat cancer in the last year – and beating it. He exclusively talks to Mando Fresko about this being his second time beating cancer. He takes us on a deep journey through his life, career and legacy on this special episode of Mando & Friends season 3, episode 14. Mando & Friends presented by Verizon features world-renowned artists musicians, high-level athletes changing the game, award winning actors, top market broadcast professionals — and social media stars breaking the internet. These stories being told have never been shared on any other platform. Talks about growing up in a traditional household, inspiring career journeys, discussions on why representation matters, their latest projects and how technology plays a vital role in their daily lives.

This isn't an interview. Just a convo between friends.
