  • Sal Perales (@SalIMakeMusic) of The Rogue Rebels is in the house!
  • Who Got What? had to be streamlined to contain all of the awesomeness inside of one small segment. The holidays were good!
  • It's been two years since our beloved Carrie Fischer passed away. We still miss her.
  • There have been some updates on The Mandalorian, both in content and casting!
  • The fan film Vader Episode 1: Shards of the Past has caused a bit of a stir. Have you seen it? Check it out here.
  • We cover the entire Darth Vader comic series. There are so many great moments!

Ep. 97: It Really Is About Family, Vol. 2

It's the holiday season once again, and we've called in our family members to make this show come to life. Sometimes the non-crazy fans have some interesting perspectives! Here's what happens:

  • Eric and his daughter Stella talk about their year in the Wars, including the theater-going experience and Stella's stance on the Reylo possibility. So many twists and turns! He and his son Henry discuss what happened in TLJ and Solo, plus how great Star Wars toys are!
  • Luke and his wife Rachel discuss her thoughts on the Disney era of movies, raising kids in a Star Wars household, and how sneaky Luke can be with his collecting habits.
  • Dallas talks to his older kids London and Ainsley about their memories and favorite Star Wars stuff.
  • Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of our listeners. We're genuinely thankful that you listen to us. You guys are the best!
