The latest episode of Star Warsologies focuses on alcohol in Star Wars!

Join us for a discussion with Reed Miller about brewing, fermentation, and distilling. What we see in cantinas and casinos isn’t the full story. Learn the science behind brewing and where the 4 main ingredients (water, grain, hops, and yeast) could come from in the Star Wars universe.

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!
