    45| Rey in Episode IX and the influence from Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel

    45| Rey in Episode IX and the influence from Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel

    We discuss how Star Wars Episode IX, The Rise of Skywalker, has similarities with superhero movies and how the fairly recent successes of female-lead Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel might have caused some influences in its production and planning.

    We also comment on other superhero movies and Marvel movies, such as Endgame. We note the different tropes in Marvel and DC and Star Wars, and how some plot points were poorly copied from movies like Wonder Woman.

    We also discuss Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Black Widow and Harley Quinn.

    44| Motherhood In Star Wars

    44| Motherhood In Star Wars

    We discuss how motherhood is portrayed in Star Wars. As a movie series focused on father and sons in its first trilogy, Star Wars doesn't leave a lot of room for mothers, but they play important roles, especially in the Prequel Trilogy.

    In the Old Trilogy, we discuss Aunt Beru's role and Leia's sometimes motherly behaviour.

    We then look at Shmi Skywalker and Padme in the Prequel trilogy.

    Finally, we look at Leia in the Sequel Trilogy.

    We also debate Mara Jade and Leia in Legends.

    43| Book Recommendations for Reylo fans

    43| Book Recommendations for Reylo fans

    In this video, Mary and Denise recommend some recent books they enjoyed as a way to get our heads out of Star Wars and support female creators. Women are writing tons of great books, and that’s where we can find stories with strong heroines, happy endings, and interesting romantic plots.

    Lots of fantasy, enemies-to-lovers romance, some weird plots, beauty and the beast and Eros and Psyche retellings, fairytale vibes, from both indie and trad authors.

    Some of the books we discuss or mention are:

    A Promise of Darkness by Bec McMaster

    Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

    Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Rodge

    Air Awakens by Elise Kova

    Uprooted and Spinning Silver by Naomi Nokik

    Neron Rising by Keary Taylor

    Dark King by C. N Crawford

    A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

    42| Female Sexuality In The Sequel Trilogy

    42| Female Sexuality In The Sequel Trilogy

    From exchanging the force in TFA, to wet gloves and a wet cave in TLJ, to Klaud, snake in a cave, and phallic symbols everywhere in TROS, Mary and Denise look at sexual undertones, symbolism, and how female sexuality is portrayed in the Sequel Trilogy.

    We discuss the sexual undertones and symbolism from The Force Awakens, how The Last Jedi had a different approach, and how The Rise of Skywalker tried to rise up to the challenge.

    41| How the Marketing Doomed the Sequel Trilogy

    Mary and Denise look back and discuss the marketing for the Sequel Trilogy, and how some of its deceiving tactics and mystery boxes created false expectations, confused fans, and even exacerbated divisions in the fandom.

    40| The Folk of the Air Review and Discussion

    40| The Folk of the Air Review and Discussion

    Mary and Denise give you a nonspoilery review and discussion of the YA fantasy book series The Folk of the Air followed by a deep discussion for those of us who read the books The Cruel Prince, The Wicked King, and The Queen of Nothing.

    If you haven't read The Cruel Prince, you'll learn what it's all about and why we enjoyed it. It has an interesting female protagonist, some interesting enemis-to-lovers romance, and a cool plot with political intrigue.

    We discuss the interesting female protagonist, Jude Duarte, and her relationships with Cardan, Madoc, Taryn, Locke, and more.

Love these insightful intelligent ladies

I love this podcast, which I originally found on YouTube when they were Star Wars Connection and they planted the seed for my Reylo conversion! Their thoughtful analysis which draws from art and literature really helped me see the films on a whole other level. Plus I just love listening to them gush and geek out anytime something fun and exciting happens in the Reyloverse. I only wish they posted more often!!! Keep up the great work ladies! This is our year!

TAK4EVER ,

Insufferable at best.

This show’s hosts has some interesting talk about the lore behind Star Wars, but I just can’t get past the continual “Reylo” fangirling every episode! WE GET IT - you want Rey and Kylo to be together. Ladies, get this straight - This is Star Wars, not some Twilight episode or a fan fiction story about Star Wars. And these characters are far from wonderful. It would be great if you could stop talking about how awesome is MARY SUE REY BESTEST GIRL EVERRRRR. The Mary Sue twit who can seem to do everything. The sequel trilogy is extremely flawed and you three need to do your due diligence and admit it. Do better. THE SEQUEL TRILOGY IS NOT ABOUT THE REYLO SUBPLOT YOU BUMBLING IDIOTS!

Insightful & Engaging SW Commentary

I don't listen to many podcasts but I LOVE the Lords of the Sith, and have listened to their Star Wars commentary since their days as "Star Wars Connection". Dee, Denise, and Mary's analysis of Star Wars is always engaging and often eye-opening. I get excited every time an episode is released!
