The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 104: Brain Drain and a Space Cane

February 13, 2019

Celebration is on the way, Star Wars Resistance only has a couple of episodes left in the season, and some Walmarts are terrible at getting the correct tags on the shelves. Here's what happens:

  • A vacation for Dallas, a Dad Motivator Moment featuring a strapping young lad, crappy weather and more right out of the gate.
  • It turns out that Who Got What? leads to "Who's Getting What?" when Eric admits that he ordered something WHILE the show was being recorded. We need help.
  • Eric's wife Amanda is the subject of That's Metal! this week. She's totally metal.
  • Dallas walks us through episode 15 of Star Wars Resistance, The New Trooper. It turns out it's not about a new Iron Maiden album.
  • Oops, we forgot to mention some Episode IX costume concept image leaks. We got it. Thanks, Luke!
  • Some listener emails and a voicemail!
  • Luke's wife being cool with his last-minute trip to Celebration Orlando shows you how lucky he is.
  • Eric's recording rig takes a dump. Tears fall, bad words are said.
  • Don't forget about our Star Wars Celebration 5-day pass giveaway. Check out this tweet for details.
