They Call Me Sheev (Part One): The Prequels – The Blockade Runner Podcast #103

We’ll be back next week with a second chapter in our look at Palpatine’s orchestration of the events of the original and sequel trilogies, but for now enjoy our rundown of the quintessential Sith Lord’s evil plans, mystical powers, and tyrannical control over the lives of his unsuspecting victims during the prequel era.
