The Phantom Menace’s Deleted Scenes – The Blockade Runner Podcast #116

BR 116 CoverNews for this week’s show includes the launch of Star Wars Roll Out, John’s thoughts on the recently released Star Wars: Myths and Fables, Ryan’s review of the Age of Resistance special, and a rumored rerelease of all 10 saga films on blu ray this fall. We discuss all of The Phantom Menace‘s deleted scenes for our primary topic this week in the back half of the episode.

Unfortunately we have some sound quality issues on this episode that we’re not able to correct in post-production. It’s listenable, but not representative of the usual sound quality level of the show. Next week should be back to normal.

Galaxy’s Edge Updates – The Blockade Runner Podcast #112

BR 112 Cover

This week’s episode focuses entirely on Galaxy’s Edge (which is kind of weird since neither of us have been there), including what the numbers are saying about how popular the park and its merchandise are and how some bogus visitors are ripping stuff off and trying to sell it online. The second half of the show features a look at the first three issues of Marvel’s Galaxy’s Edge tie-in book and our thoughts on what we’d like to see from future tie-in material.

The Power of the 90s: 1997 (Part 1) – The Blockade Runner Podcast #90

BR 90 Cover

1997 was a HUGE year in Star Wars; so huge in fact that we’ve ended up breaking our Power of the 90s episode for ’97 into two parts. Episode 90 features our discussion of the Special Editions’ theatrical and home video releases, The Phantom Menace beginning filming, and the video games and comics released that year as well.

Also, we’re using chapters in our audio files now, so you can jump around to the segments you’re most interested in if your podcast app supports them.
