episode132square3

BREAKING: ROGUE ONE Olympics Trailer Reaction! We love the Olympics, and we love Star Wars even more. Let’s discuss the NEW trailer which debuted during Olympics coverage on 8/11.

Friend of the show Adam Bray (Author: Ultimate Star Wars, Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know) joins us to discuss his new book, Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know with some fun stories and just what it takes to write what you love. He is on a book tour, so head here to check out where you can meet him.

In a special Things We Want To Share, Richard and Sarah are joined by Mark Oguschewitz (Talking Apes TV) to give their review of the film and discuss just how awesome dragons really are. This review is Spoiler-Light, which means we may talk about some plot points that occur in the first 10 minutes of the film, but we leave you to discover the important surprises that occur later in the film. Magic is preserved!
