Prequel line reads, giant Ewok posters, the Ahsoka-verse, they truly talk about everything. It's a delighful conversation you are not gonna want to miss!info_outline Kenobi Preview and Star Wars Day
Our hosts find themselves separated by a great distance, like two parts of a Force dyad trying to hang out and touch hands in a cave. First, Jim is back and reflects on the growing universality of #StarWarsDay. Then, Greg and Tim talk about Kenobi, what it could be, and how to keep the Expanding Universe accessible for casual fans.info_outline Rebel Moon, Bothan Sacrifice
It's a DubNub this week, as Tim and Greg discuss Zach Snyder's on-set tweet from his Star-Wars-inspired original film Rebel Moon. Will it transform the space opera genre? Was it originally Episode X? What will the swords be like?info_outline THX 1138
It's time to dive in to the movie Francis Ford Coppola funded and George wrote almost half a decade before Star Wars: THX 1138. Robert Duvall! Obsolete cubes! Pushover robots! Special Edition type changes! (Note: This movie is wildly more 'mature' in content than most SW stuff, so the conversation naturally is as well! Dystopia, baybee!)info_outline Favorite Obi Wan Moments
This week the gang dissects a Facebook meme, talks about a crossover we all deserve to see, and then dive into their favorite moments involving Obi-Wan Kenobi across the galaxy.info_outline Special Guests: David Lawson and Andrew Sanford
Tim, Jim, and Greg discuss CGI milk bottles and Christopher Lloyd joining the Mando Universe! Then Tim sits down with storyteller David Lawson and writer/filmmaker Andrew Sanford about growing up with the prequels, processing Star Wars fandom, and the possible logic behind some of George Lucas’ more controversial decisions.info_outline Practical VS Special Effects: An Unneccesary War
Inspired by the controversial Grand Inquisitor head in the Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer, we talk about translating stories from animation to live action, Lucasfilm's place in advancing effects technology, and why the battle between practical and special effects is actually symbiotic. Plus... we talk about that head. Pretty weird head. Also discussed: Star Wars as real-life war propoganda! George Lucas stole his own movie! Imagining the Prequel Special Editions! Subscribe, rate, review, and tell a friend to listen too!info_outline Solo Is A Newhart!

Writer of stage, screen, and comic book Daniel Kibblesmith joins Tim and Greg! Old Chicago comedy friends together again!
