The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 120: Qui-Gons, Bygones and Morons

June 5, 2019

Collectibles, Galaxy's Edge, crazy fandom and Master & Apprentice by Claudia Gray! Here's what happens:

  • We're graced with a visit from King Tom (@TomChansky), and he definitely delivers the goods.
  • Just the theme song alone for Who Got What? causes a scene.
  • The topic of weird fandom happenings leads to a question of motive and how to work the system. No conspiracy theories here, don't worry.
  • The gear for sale in Galaxy's Edge is crazy cool. Take our money. Just take it.
  • King Tom leads us into the novel Master & Apprentice by Claudia Gray. There are so many layers to what the story is about. Ms. Gray is a fantastic author, and the characters are really well done. We want you to read the book.
  • Thank you to everyone who listens to the show and who support us on social media. It really means a great deal to us!
