The Bad Motivators: A Malfunctioning Star Wars Podcast


Ep. 87: We Dig Wendig

October 17, 2018

Jon Favreau shares photos from the set of The Mandalorian, Chuck Wendig gets the axe from Marvel, and more! Here's what happens:

  • Both Dallas and Eric had birthdays this past week, so Who Got What? is a deluge of toy goodness. Happy birthday to those turds.
  • The Star Wars Holiday Special lends some design choices to The Mandalorian? It's neat.
  • Who wants to make some ice cream?
  • Marvel Comics cans Chuck Wendig over a Twitter dustup. Was the decision justifiable? How will this decision impact the future for other creatives?
  • Dallas' Whatever Clone Wars Thing continues to explore the shenanigans of Maul.
  • That's Metal! shows how getting to and from school should really go.
  • Listener voicemails and emails, including new contributors from around the world!
  • I know you're gonna assume the outro song will be Fox on the Run by Sweet, but it's not. Do you know the title and who it's by?
  • There's a sale on Eric's Bandcamp page through the month of October. Buy the Rogue Won: A Star Wars Podcast for Winners EP for $3 and get a download code for Eric's Subliminal Intent FOR FREE!
