Chris from from Star Wars Kidscast joins us this week. The tables are turned for our 100th episode, and instead of us asking the questions, Chris takes the wheel and asks away. It’s a nice change of pace and super fun.

You can follow Chris on Twitter @SWKidscast and his website is http://starwarskidscast.blogspot.com

After talking at length with Chris about everything ranging from favorite characters to how we square being peace-loving hippies while loving Star Wars, we have a bit of Canon News…

CANON NEWS [1:02:55]
