It's a shorty, but a goodie.  

LISTENER MAILBAG [0:40]

Ish sent us the first chunk of some fan fic he wrote! It’s pretty awesome.

LIAM’S MUSIC CORNER [6:40]

Put on your headphones, jump on your LightBikes, and enjoy!

JOKE
[13:00]

What spaceship does Luke fly when he really wants to show off his piloting skills?

Q&A COUNCIL [13:45]

Nayan has a couple questions for the Council:

Which is the best finale?
Did Vader deserve forgiveness in the end?

And I have a silly question that lets us have some fun with the song, Bad Guy.

#171 - The Zoom Where it Happens

August 20, 2020

It’s episode our first ever Zoom episode, where 10 kids joined us for the show!

First, some introductions are in order. Then a nice “getting to know you” question where we learn that a concerning percentage of our listeners would choose to have Force lightning if it were possible. Huh.

Then we head on over to the news!

NEWS [22:20]

We talk about the only news that matters this week, the fact that there will be a Lego Star Wars Holiday Special on Disney+ this November. Wizard!

And in case you feel like walking down a cringe-inducing memory lane, here’s our Holiday Special commentary from last year: https://youtu.be/0pBOSXdVECY

Vader’s suit talks to him!

Q&A COUNCIL [32:15]

Liam has a happy song for us, today.

This week, we start our Duel of the Fates read-through. This is the un-produced and completely un-canon script for Episode IX by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. It's ... different. But we're having fun reading through it. More to come!

June 18, 2020

Star Wars: Squadrons is coming in October, a bunch of listener emails, and a whole lot more! 

By the way, we had a technical problem this week, and I didn’t realize we had it until I went to edit the recording. So the sound quality on this episode is not up to par. Sorry about that.

MAILBAG [1:40]

Brandt, Lily and Nayan sent us emails!

LIAM’S MUSIC CORNER [20:45]

NEWS [24:25]
