    Episode 89 - Star Charts

    Welcome to our live show, recorded at Star Wars Celebration!!! In this episode, we sort various characters along the goth, prep, nerd, and jock axis. You can see the chart in the show notes, or if you're on iTunes, here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/ntmtp/G9qTOZRy.jpg
    Sorry in advance about how echoey it is! It was a big room and our primary method of recording didn't work.
    Thanks again to everyone who's supported us over the years. This is probably the biggest achievement we could ever imagine for this show, and you all made it possible.

    Episode 88 - Here Comes the General

    Hello Podawans, and May the 4th be with you. This week, we get to talk to Vanessa Marshall, who plays Hera on Star Wars Rebels! Thanks so much to Rich Howard of Whelmed: The Young Justice Files for setting this up.
    Friends, this week we lost Peter Mayhew, the original man behind the mighty Chewbacca. My feelings on it are still raw, but I’m hoping to do an episode on the fuzzball soon.
    You can find the concept art of Hera we’re referring to here:

    Follow Vanessa at @vanmarshall on Twitter, or vanessamarshall1138 on Instagram. You can also find her voicing Gamora on Guardians of the Galaxy on Disney XD.

Positive look at the fandom

Kat and Pranks are such great nerds, their enthusiasm for Star Wars is great to see.

Also, James and Johnny trying to predict the plot of books they've never read is one of the most entertaining things I've heard. I got the chance to see it live in Chicago, and while you miss the excelent facial expressions, its just as funny audio only.

Not worth the time

The most consistent part of this podcast is the squandered potential. Individually the guests are incredibly fun and engaging, but for whatever reason it doesn’t really work here.

Star Wars as George Lucas Intended It (tm)

A podcast full of good people who make wonderful content, digesting and dissecting the Star Wars universe.

It's better than you think it'll be, even if you think it'll be amazing.
