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

BR 103 CoverWe planned on doing one show covering Palpatine’s machinations, but in typical us fashion we recorded for almost two hours and only made it through the prequels. Whoops. 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.

BR 100 Cover

We celebrate 100 episodes at Celebration by breaking down the Rise of Skywalker trailer! Highlights include Ryan being obsessed with Palpatine cloning himself on Kamino, Ian McDiarmid playing Darth Maul in the prequels or something, and whether or not Rey is trying to slice Kylo’s TIE in half or take it for a ride.

Having done 100 episodes over the past almost four years has been a lot of fun and if you’ve followed us at all or ever listened, thank you so much!
