This episode we talk about reptiles and amphibians in Star Wars with Dr. Earyn McGee. There’s plenty of examples on Tatooine and Dagobah to discuss and we learn more about Earyn’s research here on Earth. As always, the best advice is…don’t touch it and definitely don’t lick it!

This is our thirtieth episode and we are releasing it on Star Wars Podcast Day 2023 (#SWPD2023), which celebrates the 24th anniversary of the very first Star Wars related podcast, Jedi Talk, back in 1999. Check out the hashtags #StarWarsPodcastDay2023 and #SWPD2023 for finding other cool Star Wars podcasts celebrating in the fun, or follow @StarWarsPodDay on Twitter.

In Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. It’s a monthly podcast about science and Star Wars!
