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!

A Canto Bight Conversation – The Blockade Runner Podcast – January 24th, 2018

Canto Bight Cover

In this week’s Blockade Runner episode Ryan and John discuss the hotly debated Canto Bight sequence from The Last Jedi. Only we both really, really like it, so we’re not so much debating as we are high-fiving each other about how punk rock it is! This conversation was actually part of last week’s episode, but we split it out into it’s own thing because we think the Canto Bight sequence deserves a little more love than it’s getting.
