The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 102: R5 Is Alive!

January 30, 2019

It's him! Is R5 gonna be in The Mandalorian? Please, please, please. Here's what happens:

  • Our friend Rebecca O'Hanlon (@rebeccaohanlon) of the You're Creepy podcast (@YouCreepy) hangs out and talks scary stuff, Star Wars and more!
  • Impulse control and the lack thereof is the theme of Who Got What? this week.
  • Luke gives us an update on our Star Wars Celebration 5-day pass giveaway. Be sure to follow the rules, people! We genuinely want you to win. Check out this tweet for details.
  • Jon Favreau shares a glorious picture on Instagram of our friend and yours, R5-D4! Does this mean that he'll be in The Mandalorian?!? Rebecca has an interesting though on this.
  • Come on, EA. What's the deal?
  • Star Wars Resistance episode 13, The Doza Dilemma, is a double helping of double-crossing action. These hips don't lie.
  • Luke brings an idea to the table regarding what Kylo Ren might be up to in Episode IX. It gets ugly, people.
  • King Tom's voicemail leads to a Dad Motivators Moment where we find out that lying to kids is sometimes the only way to go.
