The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 143: Bob Iger: Born a Gamblin’ Man

November 13, 2019

It's Mandalorian eve, and we can't sleep. Also, Bob Iger says things. Oh, and how about Star Wars Resistance? Here's what happens:

  • It's the season of giving. Help someone out.
  • The Motivators are trying to be more responsible when it comes to Who Got What? What is this world coming to?
  • There are more new toys on the way. And, oh wait, someone forgot they got something awesome.
  • Bob Iger says stuff about things in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. There's a ton of information in there, so be sure to check it out right here for yourself.
  • How about some big predictions for The Mandalorian? Some are good. Some are really good.
  • Eric is taking forever to finish reading Star Wars: Resistance Reborn. If you start reading it right now you'll beat him, and then we can all talk about it!
  • Season 2 episode 6 of Star Wars Resistance, From Beneath, really digs deep into family dynamics and funny backstories. And don't miss next week's episode; buy 3 get 1 free, installed!
  • Eric interviewed Bill Motz and Bob Roth, the masterminds behind LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, about the show and the fanbase behind it. It's great to have Star Wars being created by people who love it! Be sure to catch the Freemakers on Disney+. It's a great show.
