First, some introductions are in order. Then a nice “getting to know you” question where we learn that a concerning percentage of our listeners would choose to have Force lightning if it were possible. Huh.

Then we head on over to the news!

NEWS [22:20]

We talk about the only news that matters this week, the fact that there will be a Lego Star Wars Holiday Special on Disney+ this November. Wizard!

And in case you feel like walking down a cringe-inducing memory lane, here’s our Holiday Special commentary from last year:
