Words for Worlds

For me, what makes this such an enjoyable podcast is that it makes me appreciate the subject matter being discussed more than I would have without it. The Rogue One episode fleshed out the movie in very specific ways and deepened my understanding of the subtleties. They know their stuff.

Also, the podcasters avoid falling into the trap of inside jokes within a group of familiar friends. They are aware of an outside audience and are cognizant of the need for explanation when it's warranted.

I look forward to their thoughts on other geek items and media.
