The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep 62: We Ruin the Novelization of “The Last Jedi”

April 25, 2018

We FINALLY get to the novelization of The Last Jedi by Jason Fry. Here's what happens:

  • Dallas went to see an NBA playoff game, so Luke and Eric are joined by King Tom (@TomChansky) and Nick Palmer (@BlueAce1878)!
  • Nick has completed his 6" Black Series collection. Holy crap.
  • Eric got some stuff on clearance. No dewback though.
  • We talk about the novelization of The Last Jedi. Did add to the experience? Best parts? What could we live with out? Eric says he liked it, but did he?
  • Where is everyone at with Solo: A Star Wars Story? Are the tickets really going on sale on May 4th?
  • Listener voicemails. King Tom sent in a voicemail and ended up being a guest host. It's like that scene where there are 1000 Reys looking in the mirror.
  • You think you found love, but you're standing in The Pit.
