We start off the episode with listener emails from Nick, Ayden and Jack!

We discuss Rey’s lightsaber, canon, Valentine’s Day, ships, relationships, etc.

There’s also a little bit of talk about Colin Trevorrow’s early draft for Ep. IX: Duel of the Fates. We might end up doing a read through of the script. We’ll see.

Q&A COUNCIL [36:00]

Jack from Ottawa has our question for the week: If you could be anyone in Star Wars, who would you be?

We also go through our rankings of all the Star Wars movies, hard as that is to do.

Somehow, through all this, Liam lost TWO teeth.

It’s a pretty loose format for our 150th. We had a ton of fun with it. Read a bunch of listener emails, covered quite a bit of canon news. A fun and quirky episode sure to put a smile on your face or your money back!

Here’s the soundtrack to the episode:

Anna wanted me to post a photo of the rainbow unicorn cake she made on here, so here you go:

WE HAVE SPOKEN 2

There’s a lot of bad people in these episodes. The kids weren’t super into these until we started talking about them. That crew in The Prisoner is going to haunt our dreams for a good long while though.
