    # 34 The Star Wars special

    The Mandalorian is only three episodes in but by some metrics is already more popular than Stranger Things, proving the force is strong even in a story with no jedi.

    This week Newshub's own jedi master and Entertainment Editor Kate Rodger joins Finn Hogan and Jordan Tini to chat about the latest and greatest in a galaxy far, far away.

    The nerds also unpack their hopes and fears for Rise of Skywalker, their thoughts on Baby Yoda and how exactly the Mandalorian eats if he never removes his helmet.
