Owls and Stuff Would’ve Gone a Long Way – The Blockade Runner Podcast #151

Episode #151 features a look at the latest Star Wars video game announcements and updates, some headscratching re: no Mandalorian season two trailer yet, Ryan’s highlights from the recent Force Fest, and more.

Quick disclaimer: John did that thing where he chose the wrong microphone setting and recorded the whole episode from his webcam mic, so the audio quality isn’t quite up to our normal aggressively average standards. That being said, it sounds ok and shouldn’t be a big deal unless pro audio is important to your podcast listening.
