The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 57: Vader’s Got Issues, Boushh Gets Blasted

March 21, 2018

Issue #13 of the Darth Vader comic, plus eight episodes of Forces of Destiny! Here's what happens:

  • Dallas scored some cool Funko gear. Eric rescues Hera from the worst party ever.
  • What's up with the HasLab sail barge?
  • Issue #13 of the Darth Vader comic gets the Motivator treatment. It's a killer issue for sure.
  • Eight episodes of Forces of Destiny dropped. What did we think of them? What do you think of them?
  • Mark Hamill enjoyed St. Patrick's Day in Ireland. He has some things to say about Episode IX in a fun spot interview with ABC. Come on, J.J., don't let us down!
  • Is the music score-only version of The Last Jedi only available for a limited time via Movies Anywhere?
  • The Bad Motivators Star Wars Tweet of the Week comes from Noemi Pataki (@shan_the_druid). You can check the Tweet out here. She asks one Mr. Chuck Wendig about Mr. Bones.
  • Listener emails and voicemails, featuring King Tom, Sam Scorsone, JP and Josh Nelson.
  • Some final thoughts on the Wars.
  • Be sure to watch The Director and the Jedi, the feature-length documentary on the making of The Last Jedi. It's so, so good!
  • Stick around for some Helloween. You know you want to.
