The bulk of this week’s show is focused on discussing what Benioff & Weiss’s leaving Star Wars could mean for the franchise’s future as well as what might’ve led to their departure. Ryan shares his experience seeing Knives Out (but says absolutely nothing about the plot, so don’t worry about that) and we also spend a few minutes discussing the most recent Mandalorian trailer.

Return to Vader’s Castle, Return to Resistance – The Blockade Runner Podcast #126

BR 126 CoverThis week’s show is all about comics and cartoons! For the comics side of things, we run down the Marvel Star Wars news coming out of NYCC 2019, take a look at some recently announced Star Wars manga, and share our thoughts on the first two Return to Vader’s Castle issues from IDW as well as Star Wars: Allegiances #1 from Marvel. The second half of the show is devoted to discussing the first two episodes of Star Wars Resistance‘s final season before we wrap with a few minutes on Freddie Prinze Jr.’s recent (brilliant) viral monologue.

Triple Force Friday Recap Special – The Blockade Runner Podcast #124

BR 124 CoverThis episode features the first portion of a lengthy discussion we recorded this week that got a little bit away from us in terms of length, so we’re splitting it into two episodes. This first one features our Triple Force Friday recap including our experiences going out looking for product, our impression of the merchandise we found, and some of the problems we see with quality, promotion, and distribution.

We’ll be back later in the week with the rest of our chat covering #Where’sRose, Kevin Feige’s announced Star Wars movie, and the Star Wars book announcements from NYCC 2019.
