Children of the Force #32 - Unprovable Opinions!

March 30, 2016

Episode 32 has us talking all about The Force Awakens yet again! Liam has a new favorite character! Anna says Finn reminds her of a character from Avatar. Poe is the opposite of a jerky mc-jerk-dude. Also ... Winnie the Pooh? 

Listen, and together we will rule 100 Acre Wood Base as father and son and daughter and listener...

And as always, check out our website for the show guide for this episode. Here:


Our family went to The Force Awakens in the theater for one last (?) time. It’sfinally at our second-run theater, the historic Riverview.

Upon viewing The Force Awakens again, the kids rethought some stuff, includingthe character of Poe (“He sacrifices himself for a droid!”) And I have someadditional thoughts about Finn. 

Speaking of thinking more deeplyabout the characters of The Force Awakens, we start our on-air read through of "Resistance, Caring,& 'Mask'ulinity: The Feminist Message of the Dudes in The Force Awakens" by Kate Bennion. Thisweek, we start off with discussing how amazingly non-jerky Poe Dameron is. 



Nick from London sends us anotheramazing theory. This time: Snoke is a clone! How is that possible? IS that how the Force works? Listen to hear Nick’s theory!


There’s information about Aftermath:Life Debt out of C2E2. Nothing too groundbreaking, but it’s nice to have ageneral idea of what it’s about.

CANON NEWS [33:55]

We get into a lot of informationabout Chewbacca and discuss what a life debt is and whether or not Chewbaccaactually owes one to Han (or maybe Han owes one to Chewie?).

JOKE [37:20]

Our joke thisweek is, again, from Chris from Star Wars Kidscast.

Q: What cuddly bear flies X-wings for the Resistance?

Q&A COUNCIL [38:40]

Q: Of all the scenes in The Force Awakens, which one do you most want tofreeze-frame though when we get the Blu-Ray?




The kids ask me another questionfrom Star Wars Trivial Pursuit: What were the odds of Han and Luke’s survivalduring the Hoth night, according to R2-D2?

OUTRO [49:00]
