The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 130: Why Is Everyone Calling Me Robby?

August 14, 2019

Benioff and Weiss, streaming wars, Disney marketing and Kid Rock. Here's what happens:

  • Luke knocks one out of the park in Who Got What? this week.
  • Hey, remember Kid Rock? Yeah, I didn't think so.
  • Benioff and Weiss (the Game of Thrones guys) have a deal with Netflix. What's that gonna do with their Star Wars trilogy?
  • You take the good, you take the bad; you take them both and there you have Reddit.
  • Disney's marketing leaves some of us feeling confused.
  • Don Williams, brother of John Williams, talks about the music for The Rise of Skywalker and what it's like to play on it.
  • There are some new books coming. Did one of the Amazon descriptions drop a bomb on us?
