    Holiday Special: A Look Back at The Mandalorian - Season Two

    Holiday Special: A Look Back at The Mandalorian - Season Two

    Welcome to an extra special episode of Issue Zero! It’s the HOLIDAY SPECIAL!!! Well…it was supposed to be. Last year Dila (my contemptible harpy of a producer) and I did a deep dive on the ORIGINAL Star Wars Holiday Special, and we’d intended on doing the same with the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special. But sadly the new one is not really a family variety show…it’s really just an animated short for kids. So we wound up doing a deep dive on the second season of The Mandalorian.

    We wade right into it, episode by episode, the highs and the lows…and yes we tied a lot into our ongoing Star Wars Audio Drama…Mud79.

    There was also some speculation about what that post credit scene on the final episode means…all that and more on this SPECIAL EDITION…of Issue Zero!

    Boots: Part 2

    This week we continue with our Star Wars radio play...Mud 79. 

    And we’re wrapping the up the fifth chapter! Only two episodes left after this one! Well…of the first act anyways

    This episode sees the scouts reaching their target and engaging in a horrific tooth and nail firefight, where failure could lead to the death of thousands of their fellow Mud Troopers.

    Pretty small voice cast in this one…but there was A LOT of heavy lifting by Carly And Chyann…they are incredible to work with!

    Boots: Part 1

    This week we continue with our Star Wars radio play...Mud 79. 

    We’re on Chapter FIVE! Right on. At this point I have dedicated well over a hundred hours to this project, and it’s been worth it! I can honestly say, so podcast or audio production has brought me as much satisfaction and happiness as this one, and it isn’t even close.

    This episode sees the scouts of platoon 79 sent out on a covert mission to bring down a well defended anti-aircraft position, as part of a full scale assault on a major enemy instillation.

    A big shout out to Natasha Krishan…who’s been doing background voice work since the second chapter but final makes her debut as an Imperial Intelligence Officer!

Devils Talon ,

Brilliance!!!

Fearless Fred Kennedy is already an accomplished radio, tv and convention personality, some might say a legend in southern Ontario, but this new project he has taken on raises his status among the Geeks and Nerds to new heights. His original story, Mud 79 falls within the Star Wars Universe and it’s absolutely brilliant! He has his childhood friends and his friends within the Canadian media assist him, editing, producing and lending their voices to the audio drama and they all do an amazing job. The episodes leave you wanting more and they are easy binge. I can’t wait for the next chapters!

I AM THE PICKLE ,

it WAS good…..

At first it’s really fun and entertaining, but quite literally becomes “listen to my Starwars fan fiction, please hire me Disney pleeeeeease!”
