Episode #38 – It may not sound like much…

…but it’s got it where it counts.

It’s episode 38 of Children of the Force! And seriously, this episode doesn’t sound that great because I accidentally recorded through the laptop microphone instead of our usual microphone. But I couldn’t bring myself to ask the kids to re-record a whole episode. So here we are with sub-par audio quality. Sorry ‘bout that.

STAR WARSY STUFF [1:15]

We are the proud and happy owners of The Sounds of Star Wars by J.W. Rinzler.

Which brings us to our new segment…

WHAT’S THAT SOUND? [2:20]

How did Ben Burtt create the spine-chilling sound of Darth Vader’s breath?

NEWS [4:00]

The final cover image for The Force Awakens comic adaptation has been released. I still don’t like it, but it’s not as cringe-worthy as it used to be. Here’s the side-by-side comparison:

Thank the Maker those troopers were removed. And the extraneous TIEs. But still…

A new Battlefront coming in 2017? Sounds pretty cool.

CANON NEWS [11:05]

Kylo Ren aka Jedi Killer.

Also, Kylo prevented the return of the Jedi order, which makes us wonder what was up with Luke’s students that they hadn’t “returned” yet.

JOKE [14:40]

Chris from Star Wars Kidscast has a couple more jokes for us.

-What shiny Stormtrooper Commander really likes music?
-What Resistance pilot is always staring at his phone?

Q&A COUNCIL [15:60]

If you could make any letter, number or food item into a Star Wars ship, what would it be?

STUMP THE LUMP! [21:35]

I ask the kids a couple questions this week:

-Who is Niima Outpost named after?
-When was R2-D2’s last memory wipe?

LISTENER MAILBAG [25:40]

Noah sent us a theory on Finn. It doesn’t quite fit (Anna pokes the holes), but how great it is that kids are trying to figure this stuff out!

OUTRO [31:05]

Thanks for listening! Send us a voicemail or email us at forcechildren@gmail.com if you want to take part in the discussion or just give us some feedback. Thanks!

SPOILERS!!! [33:00]

The rest of the episode contains mild spoilers for Rogue One, so… abandon spoilerphobedom, all ye who enter here.
