Ep 70: Galactic Star Loser

If you’re a news site editor reading this in the future, don’t even THINK about stealing our episode title and using it as a headline for your review of the Galactic Starcruiser hotel at Disney World. We will call you on it. 

In Episode 70, hosts Alyce and Laura are up bright and early with mimosas and spiked coffee to catch up* on Star Wars news, quote 90s-era Saturday Night Live skits and gush about Spider-Man and Yellowjackets.

  • Alyce DRIVES now. Like, she drives a car. For real. 
  • What you need to know about a new Star Wars video game and the #BlackOutStarWarsEclipse initiative
  • Recommended reading this week: The Hollywood Reporter’s most recent article (Dec 16) on the forthcoming Book of Boba Fett! It features fun reveals, how Fett’s story will be different from Din Djarin’s, and getting to know showrunner Robert Rodriguez.
  • Listen carefully and enjoy how gracefully we segue from talking about Star Wars: The Acolyte to talking about American Pie 
  • It’s an Age of Resistance reunion! What happened when Pilot Jess Pava actress Jessica Henwick met Rian Johnson on the set of Knives Out 2 (via SyFy.com)
  • This excerpt for The High Republic: Fallen Star by Claudia Gray has us HYPED af! (via starwars.com)
  • Fear not, we are most definitely talking about those sh-tty Galactic Starcruiser videos that were circling the internet earlier this month.
  • Recap on Tap! Laura shares some takeaways from C2E2 (Chicago’s Comic Con) panels that featured Star Wars authors, Delilah Dawson, Charles Soule and Timothy Zahn
  • Laura quizzes Alyce on the opening crawls and Alyce seeks out “the most difficult” Star Wars trivia on the internet (it’s not).
