133: Skywalker Through Stranger Things / Goodbye Kenny Baker


The biggest TV hit this summer has definitely been the Netflix horror-suspense series, STRANGER THINGS. Joining us this week is actress Glennellen Anderson, who plays mean-girl Nicole with Steve’s gang. She gives us all kinds of awesome details about working on set, the Duffer Brothers, Winona Rider and the miracle that is Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven). There are spoilers ahead in this interview, so if you haven’t seen STRANGER THINGS yet, what are you doing? Watch, then listen! (1:07:48)

James Arnold Taylor in the house! Our beloved voice of Obi-Wan from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels joins us to talk about one of his other 200 voices: Ratchett from Ratchett and Clank The Movie! This film will be released on home video August 23rd, so be on the lookout. JAT really is the sweetest guy, and even does a little “JAT Theater” for all of our Skywalkers. (53:30)
