Ep. 155: 10011011

Footage from somewhere, sound recording for nerds, and the internet keeps up its track record. Here's what happens:

  • In a major get for the podcast, our friend Jessica Schroeder (@Darth_Schroeder) hangs out and tells us what's what being cold is really like.
  • Who Got What? is ladies first.
  • Roofing while podcasting is irresponsible at best.
  • Oh Twitter, you never let us down when it comes to letting us down.
  • Where did this footage come from? Is it really from the Star Wars Underworld project?
  • Check out this killer VFX reel from The Rise of Skywalker at vanityfair.com!
  • Dude! David Acord and Matt Wood talked about the inside slant on sound design with Good Morning America. It's so rad.

Ep. 154: Just Donald Duck-in’ It

Concept art from Trevorrow's take on Episode IX, a The Clone Wars trailer, Star Wars Resistance comes to an end, and more! Here's what happens:

  • We finally get on track for Who Got What? and it was the best of times.
  • Some of the concept art for Trevorrow's Duel of the Fates (ep. IX) is really cool. Like, REALLY cool.
  • You're not going to believe this, but there was more drama over the Obi-Wan live-action series. Don't worry, everything is fine. But geez.
  • The trailer for the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is DOPE. Even if you haven't been into the show before now you should definitely check this upcoming final season out when it hits.
  • Our friends at Kessel Run Transmissions say the Star Wars Rebels sequel will be happening this winter, and we'll learn more after the season finale of The Clone Wars. That's gonna be pretty sweet.
  • The much-hyped Star Wars Resistance aired its series finale, The Escape. What did you think of the show? Overall we liked it, but maybe they could have done more with the characters. It was a good episode that kids will probably love.

Ep.. 153: Get Out of My Yard, You Will

The Rise of Skywalker crosses the $1 billion line, Star Wars Resistance nears its end, and people are saying things about live action series. Here's what happens:

  • Our ultra-rad friend Ali Slate (@glittergeekali tells us what her fandom is like and how cool her dad is.
  • Who Got What? and almost everyone got something!
  • How many times have you seen The Rise of Skywalker? What did Ali think of it? Is she a Reylo or a Say No?
  • It turns out not everyone loves The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda. What?!?
  • We're getting closer to the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and we're mostly stoked for it.
  • As Star Wars Resistance nears the series end, can we expect it to get more and more serious with each episode? In S02E17, Rebuilding the Resistance, the stakes are as high and the action has real consequences. What's next?
  • Is any of the news about the live-action tv series real this week? What is wrong with people? Besides the obvious stuff, I mean.
  • So, the High Republic Era?

Ep. 152: Still Snoke-in’

Kylo Ren's origin story in comic form, Star Wars Resistance brings the heat, and more. Here's what happens:

  • We managed to get Who Got What? in the right spot in the show this time.
  • You know what? Star Wars Rebels WAS AWESOME. It's a great show. Very well done.
  • How about the Star Wars: Rise of Kylo Ren comics? It's a scene, man. What do you think of it?
  • We finally get back to Star Wars Resistance, and it's definitely well-timed! Two episodes were released this past week, and they turned up the heat quite a bit. People are getting killed, battles are taking place, and the action is really good!
  • How's The Rise of Skywalker sitting with you now that we've had it for almost 4 weeks? What do you love? What do you wish they did differently? Was there anything you expected to happen but didn't? Well, we have thoughts.

Ep. 151: Up in Snoke

We talk about how the sequel trilogy as a whole worked for us, and we look ahead to what's next. Here's what happens:

  • His royal majesty King Tom (@TomChansky) bestows his kingly wisdom upon us.
  • Our new show art is courtesy of our friend Xurxo (@laseraw)! Check him out on Instagram (@xurxogpenalta).
  • Eric forgets how the show works and misses Who Got What? like a doofus. It's later in the show, which is weird.
  • We talk about the sequel trilogy as a whole and what the noise is all about around The Rise of Skywalker and Star Wars in general.
  • What are we all looking forward to in the near future? What's coming up?
  • What is the mysterious Project Luminous all about?
  • No, we didn't forget about Star Wars Resistance!

Ep. 150: Kuilling Me Softly (with Beskar Saunders)

The first season of The Mandalorian comes to an end. Oh, and we have a guest. Here's what happens:

  • Happy New Year.
  • Steele Saunders of Steele Wars (@SteeleWars)helps us celebrate 150 episodes!
  • We always want the guest to go first during Who Got What? when we have one.
  • We talk The Rise of Skywalker and figure out where everyone is with it. And how about Twitter? That place is great.
  • There may be some legitimate Star Wars live-action television news.
  • The last two episodes of the first season of The Mandalorian where a rollercoaster ride of emotions. It seems like everyone is mostly on the same page with this.
  • We have some KILLER new designs at TeePublic thanks to our friend Xurxo (@laseraw)! Check them out at https://t.co/ozsvg2LKpO.

Ep. 149: All We’ve Done, All This Time

We saw it! We finally saw The Rise of Skywalker. So did most of the internet. Can you guess how it's going? Here's what happens:

  • Merry Christmas.
  • Who Got What? goes by fast.
  • Okay, here's the deal. There was a killer new episode of The Mandalorian and also a new episode of Star Wars Resistance. We didn't talk about them. There just wasn't any time. So much to discuss! We'll get to them next week.
  • We talk about The Rise of Skywalker in detail. What did we think of the movie as a whole? What does it all mean? What did everyone else think about it?
  • We talk about some key elements of the movies, and imagine what we might have done differently. What was the best part?
  • Anything else we say here is just going to be some version of "we saw the movie" so this will be it.
  • There's some SUPER RAD new t-shirts coming.
