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.

Sith Troopers! – The Blockade Runner Podcast #113

BR 113 Cover

We kick this week’s show off with some follow up on our Galaxy’s Edge episode via some comments from our friend Jake and a look at Abigail Disney’s criticism of the company’s treatment of its park employees. The rest of the show is all about the recently-unveiled Sith troopers! We discuss the look, but more importantly, the name of these crimson villains and speculate about how they might fit into The Rise of Skywalker and exactly which Sith they may be working for…

For those who watch the show on YouTube, we’re experimenting with Google Hangouts alternatives (because Google is killing that platform at the end of this month) and unfortunately our first try didn’t work out. We’ll still post the audio to YouTube, but it’ll just be a static image for this week. Hopefully we’ll get the video side of things worked out for episode 114.

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.

Resistance Hero Scott Saw Episode IX Footage and Lived to Tweet About It! – The Blockade Runner Podcast #93

BR 93 Cover

Our recording session this week went too long again, so we’re splitting it up into two episodes, the first of which features our discussion of the Episode IX footage shown at the Disney shareholder’s meeting earlier this week. Shout out to newly minted RESISTANCE HERO @Ladewig for his tweets that made the pain of having to wait until Celebration Chicago to see any footage sting just a little bit less. We wrap this first episode with Ryan’s endorsement of Queen’s Shadow

Tune in later this week for our discussion of the most recent episodes of Resistance and don’t forget that the audio podcast features chapter markers if you want to skip to a specific section. As always, we welcome feedback at blockaderunnerpodcast@gmail.com or on Twitter at @blockaderun.
