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.

We start the show with a pretty frank discussion about the killing of George Floyd, racism, protest, property damage, and calls for justice. As a white parent, it’s my duty to have these conversations with my kids.

This is not a parental warning, it’s a parental plea: White parents, talk with your kids about racism! Recognize how you benefit from systemic racism. Continue to have hard, uncomfortable conversations with your kids about racism. We all need to do better and we all have ample room for growth.

To our black listeners and all black fans, we see you. Your life matters. If you think we can do better in any way, please let us know.

Here’s the John Boyega speech we excerpted on the show:
