Episode #6 – Star Wars Day Spectacular!

Listen on iTunesStitcher or stream it on Podbean.

All right, everyone. Just wait. This episode was recorded on Star Wars Day, which, I think, should be a national holiday with paid time off. Because what the heck just happened? How was Star Wars Day so awesome?

The kids and I went to record this podcast episode after they got home from school, and when we were done I checked Twitter and a somewhat-legit-sounding rumor dropped that the second Anthology film was going to be a Boba Fett “origin” story.

No, not this origin story. That would be weird.

The internet StarWarsed all  .   day  .   long.

I’m not complaining, but how exactly could I be expected to get this episode live before the clock struck the death knell of midnight? How could I get this thing out there before the Revenge of the 5th was upon us?

The answer is that I could not.

So here we are on the other side. I feel cold.

Listen on iTunesStitcher or stream it on Podbean.

At any rate, in this episode we have some fun, and I edit none of that fun out. In fact, there is the barest minimum of editing in this podcast. And I had no show notes to read from. Because I didn’t have time to write them up. So we had fun! All things considered, it turned out quite listenable.

Some of the stuff we talked about:

The Roqoo Depot guide to Celebration Anaheim Livestream

The Running of the Willrow Hoods
