Then we listen to amazing voicemails of amazing people wishing us a happy 4th.

The first, from BB-Kate of the Nerd of Paradise podcast. Listen to her awesome podcast here: http://nerdofparadise.net

Evan and Wyatt also sent us a funny (I think?) voicemail.

We also heard from Jonathon from the Random Star Wars Show.

Genevieve sent us a voicemail, too! Remember her from Episode 84?

Michal Schick also left us a great voicemail which inspired some outro music for this episode. You can find Michal being awesome here: https://twitter.com/inkasrain

Q&A COUNCIL [25:10]

Michal also had a question for the Question and Answer Council? If you could change one story decision in Star Wars, what would it be and why?

Then we listen to a voicemail (with sound effects!) from Andrew and Rufus!

We discuss the new announcements of actors coming to Celebration! Check out the two announcements on www.starwars.com
