It’s a pretty loose format for our 150th. We had a ton of fun with it. Read a bunch of listener emails, covered quite a bit of canon news. A fun and quirky episode sure to put a smile on your face or your money back!

We Have Spoken: A Mandalorian Podcast – Chapter 5 and 6: Whatcha Gonna Do?

We talk whistling birds, body counts, the creepy Client, Mando culture and ... armpit hair? For some reason?

November 20, 2019

This week we're talking the Entertainment Weekly story, photos, that new TV spot, and more! As always, check out the blog post for this episode to see more links, images and videos: https://childrenoftheforce.com/2019/11/21/episode-146-tros-in-ew-an-acronym-story/

STAR WARSY STUFF [1:10]

Jacob fills us in on hot chips.

Margaret and Henry sent us some photos of their Halloween costumes! So cool! 

We’ve been watching The Mandalorian, of course.

I finished Black Spire and ended up liking it quite a bit! And I’m 2/3 of the way through Resistance Reborn and there are things to talk about.

NEWS [11:11]

There’s a bunch of The Rise of Skywalker news and images from Entertainment Weekly this week.

There’s a new poster!

We also watch the new 30 second teaser. We recorded before the full wide-screen version came out and, hoo boy, does that reveal some interesting things. Take a look at what we were missing!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zsp8iOt76YU

The Obi Wan show was going to be a movie.

And Bob Iger talks about even more Disney+ Star Wars shows.

JOKE [42:15]

What do you call a Mandalorian who likes small oranges?
What do you call a Mandalorian who likes to sleep?
What do you call a musical group of Mandalorians?
What do you call Chewbacca’s bandolier when it’s being worn by a Mandalorian? 

Q&A COUNCIL [43:35]

Our question comes from Jacob: What Hogwarts house would Star Wars characters be in? We don’t actually answer this question this week, but we will next week! Let us know if you have any thoughts!

We Have Spoken: A Mandalorian Podcast – Chapter Two: You Speak Terrible Jawa

November 16, 2019

It’s Chapter 2 of The Mandalorian and we are HERE. FOR. IT.

First we recap Chapter 1 and I talk about how the blue fishy alien from the beginning of the episode remind me of Sea Monkeys. Yeah, it’s a stretch. But for some reason that’s who he reminded me of.

Then we dive deep into Chapter 2.
