Ep. 196: Woah-Katan

You know who shows up in you know what, Kuill finally gets a Black Series figure, and more! Here's what happens:

  • Holding in stupid jokes can be really hard sometimes, you guys.
  • Who Got What is heavy with the X Gon' Give It to Ya vibe this week. Game on.
  • Mando Monday finally comes through with a Kuill figure. It really should have been this time last year!
  • How about Bo-Katan? She's rad, yeah?
  • Watch S02E03 of The Mandalorian, Ch. 11: The Heiress, with us. Reunited and it feels so good.

A new episode of The Mandalorian, a book is gonna come out, some Disney+ show news, and more! Here's what happens:

  • The dynamic of Who Got What is different than it used to be.

Ep. 193: A Nun with a Cute Face (with Jessica Schroeder)

We're just a few days away from the start of season 2 of The Mandalorian, the first Mando Monday was a reasonable success, and more! Here's what happens:

  • Our awesome friend Jessica Schroeder (@Darth_Schroeder) hangs out and talks knitting and other super sexy stuff.
  • Check out Jessica's Etsy shop, Northland Knits Shop, and buy something cool!
  • Who Got What moved straight into Who DIDN'T Get What this time.
  • The first Mando Monday brought us some pretty cool perch, some of which was actually obtainable.
  • Little Caesar's Hot-N-Ready is a bit of false advertisement.
  • Jessica's dad and step-mom watched a Star Wars movie for the first time!
  • Pajamas, right?
  • We talk about what our favorite Disney-era Star Wars movies are, and talk about what we're looking forward to the most.
  • Eric's old bandmate, Jim Perkins, passed away last week. Stick around and listen to a throwback from Ted's Twisted Penny and revel in the awesomeness. Rest In Peace, Jimmy.

Ep. 192: Your Central Processing Unit Is Damaged

Nerds watch Monday Night Football to catch a special look at The Mandalorian and everyone was perfectly content. Here's what happens:

  • Happiness, taunting and disappoint round out Who Got What this week.
  • We got to watch the special look for The Mandalorian and talk about how neat it will be to see the show.
  • We talk video games. Luke shows Dallas and Eric a trailer for Cyberpunk 2077.
  • Watch S01E08 of The Mandalorian, Ch. 8: Redemption, with us. It gets better every time. Every single time.
