    Always Watching - Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker - AL447

    Always Watching - Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker - AL447

    Jay and Joel are both life-long Star Wars fans, so they took the opportunity to indulge themselves with this bonus episode. A spoiler-filled discussion of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the final film in the Skywalker Saga. The boys also discuss just what THAT means for Star Wars, and what they expect and hope for next.


    Beware, the boys do discuss some elements of season one of The Mandalorian as well, so if you’ve yet to watch that be forewarned.


    Thanks to our sponsor for the end of 2019 and this bonus episode, Drew Ackerman and the Sleep with Me Podcast. Find him and his show here, Sponsor: Sleep with Me Podcast - https://www.sleepwithmepodcast.com (https://www.sleepwithmepodcast.com/) .
