Ep. 167: Die Well, Mandalorian

We've got some awesome Disney+ series news, a Dr. Aphra project, plus longnecks and paychecks! Here's what happens:

  • Well, if you missed That's Metal on our Patreon, you should listen to it. Eric had a 2-part episode with Hawes Burkhardt from the Blue Harvest podcast where they talked about the music of Tool. Fly, you fools.
  • It's a rare moment in Who Got What this week where everyone got something!
  • There's a female-centric Star Wars show coming to Disney+ from Leslye Headland!
  • Genevieve O'Reilly is reprising her role as Mon Mothma in the Cassian Andor series. That's some excellent news.
  • The Rise of Skywalker is coming to Disney+ on May 4th.
  • Season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been amazing. How can it already be close to being over?!?
  • The commentary of S07E10 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Phantom Apprentice, could have easily been a string of us saying, "No way. No. Way. NO WAY."
  • Sam Witwer said cool stuff about Obi-Wan and Maul on YouTube last year and we just now saw it.

Bonus EP: TRoS Commentary

What could be better during social distancing then to listen to 3 idiots talk about a Star Wars movie, while said movie plays in the background? Nothing! Which is why we recruited King Tom to help us commentate The Rise of Skywalker. You can watch it with the movie or just listen along because we have the movie audio in the background. (Full disclosure, we love this movie. So if you're looking for a negative review, this isn't the episode for you.)

Stay safe everyone.
