The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 126: Groundskeeper Snoke and the Happy Crappy Kid

July 17, 2019

Sith Troopers, Eli Vanto and Blue Velvet, new shirts, expensive toys. Here's what happens:

  • Who Got What? was brought to you in part by Terry Fitzgerald, excellent human being.
  • Chris Hall, artist extraordinaire, is helping us with some amazing merch. Be on the lookout!
  • How about those Sith Troopers? Warrant wrote a song about them.
  • There's an excerpt of Thrawn: Treason on Gizmodo. That's cool and all, but the big news is one of the pictures. You'll know it when you see it.
  • A Kenner Prototype Rocket Launcher Boba Fett sold at auction for over $100k! We suddenly don't feel bad about what we're spending.
  • Daisy Ridley talks lightsaber duels in The Rise of Skywalker.
  • When the kids were ditching class and smoking out back at Jedi High, Groundskeeper Snoke filled them full of his extremist agenda.
  • The mashup outro this week is called ...Ready for Backseat Freestyle? and you can find it on YouTube right here. Please share it with everyone you know!
