The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 82: It Turns Out That Luke Has Two Daughters

September 12, 2018

We get a little help talking about the Han Solo home release, Ray Park being awesome and more. Here's what happens:

  • Congratulations to Luke and his family for their newest member, Lily Rose!
  • Clare (@cstribs) of The Imperial Senate Podcast stops by to help us talk about this week's news and also to gush over how great Ray Park is.
  • A new theme for Who Got What? makes its debut (sorta)!
  • A deleted scene from the upcoming home release of Solo: A Star Wars Story showed up on USA Today. It's neat.
  • Is the overall lighting of the Solo movie too dark?
  • Ray Park's interview in Forbes tells us that we missed a clue that he would be in Solo?
  • People are calling Ray Park fat. That is ridiculous.
  • Kathleen Kennedy rules.
  • What are the "must-do" things to hit while in Chicago for Celebration? Clare fills us in.
  • That's Metal features Eric telling someone how it is while playing guitar in the middle of a show. Check it out here. Go to the 1:40 mark to see it unfold.
  • Dallas' Whatever Clone Wars Thing somehow leads to a discussion about an Iron Maiden song.
  • Listener emails and voicemails, featuring some mild trolling. You're on notice!
