    Much Ado About Frog Lady (The Mandalorian Chapter 10 Recap)

    Much Ado About Frog Lady (The Mandalorian Chapter 10 Recap)

    Recorded on Wednesday, November 11, 2020
    Is two weeks in a row considered a streak?  Braden wasn't too excited about this week's chapter of The Baby Yoda Show (featuring a "Mandalorian"), so Ryan encourages him through a recap of Chapter 10, the appropriately named "The Passenger."  During the discussion, he put on his "science teacher" hat and educated Braden about the differences between frogs, newts, geckos, and salamanders while trying to figure out what, exactly, Frog Lady is; as well as the reason that the phrase "estuary moon" makes no sense, even for a Star Wars show!

Enjoy the father/son duo

Never thought of doing a podcast with a child, but this show is amazing! Definitely will keep listening

alansisto ,

Awesome dad/son podcast!

This duo absolutely rocks! Great chemistry, great timing, and a bunch of laughs along the way.
I admit my SW fandom is pretty much limited to the original trilogy (IV - VI, now), but I've seen the others and so was able to follow along. Gained a bunch of new insight (Porgs were sort of an accident, and inspired by puffins -- who knew?), and enjoyed every minute of it. Love the way dad asks questions to get some great conversation going. This inspires me to think about starting one with my son in five years when my current show has run its course! :)

Polvora370z ,

Pure Jedi Goodness!

The chemistry between dad and son is unreal! Talk about Star Wars hardcore fans and that's one of the reasons that makes this podcast so great you can hear the passion come through with what they are saying.

I will definetly listen again :)
