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.

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!)
