This episode features two separate conversations with a few different members of the Blockade Runner crew. First up, Kevin and John discuss the recently released Solo TV spots as well as two short scenes from the film shown on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Ryan and John follow that up with some discussion of Poe Dameron #26 which features the first post-TLJ storytelling we’re aware of from Lucasfilm. We also briefly touch on Star Wars Adventures and some other Star Wars publishing as we ride out the last couple of week’s waiting for Solo: A Star Wars Story to release.

Blockade Runner Podcast Featured in a Documentary Short from Tyler Walker

Rock Valley College filmmaker Tyler Walker approached me last fall about doing a documentary short on our podcast and the final product, John Neisewander: A Sort of Star Wars Story, is really cool! As the name implies he was only able to interview me, so unfortunately it doesn’t feature the rest of the Blockade Runner crew, but I think it came together really well! Give it a look if you get a chance and follow Tyler on YouTube here.

Blockade Runner Podcast T-Shirts Are Here!

We have a Blockade Runner Podcast t-shirt shop and it’s live at https://blockaderunnerpodcast.threadless.com!

New Shirt

As of now we just have our basic show logo available as a design option, but I’m hoping to possibly add one or two more in the future. That being said, we have no intention of going into the Star Wars novelty/parody/unofficial merch business, so if/when we add any more, they’ll still just be shirts featuring our logo or name in some form.

Which brings me to why we decided to go with a Threadless Artist Shop. There are a bunch of great options out there for custom shirts (in fact, our other podcast has a TeePublic site), but I love that the Threadless shop lets us strip out any potential profit for the show so we can offer the shirts as inexpensively as possible. We’re not trying to earn any money on the shirts anyway, so being able to sell a custom Blockade Runner shirt for as little as $10 is the ideal scenario in this case.

Our listening audience is small and demand for Blockade Runner products isn’t exactly high, but it’ll be fun for us to have some Blockade Runner gear available. Our real purpose in building the shop is just to have an easy way of buying a bit of merch for ourselves to promote the show/wear around Celebrations or maybe to give away once in a while. Check out the shop and let us know what you think, and if you do end up picking up a shirt, definitely let us know via Twitter or email!
