We open this week’s episode with a quick run down of the Star Wars books and comics Ryan’s been reading before spending the rest of the episode breaking down chapter 3 of The Book of Boba Fett.

Apologies for John’s echoey audio; my mic settings were off and my normally aggressively average audio quality is lower than usual this week.

Life Day Season Comes to a Close (Boba, Please Come Home) – The Blockade Runner Podcast #203

In our final episode before The Book of Boba Fett debuts, Ryan and John discuss the progress of the #BlackoutStarWarsEclipse movement, Book of Boba Fett news (including the revelation that the trailers only show footage from the first half of the first episode), and a new Han and Chewie series from Marvel. We finish up the show proper with John’s early impressions of Tales From The Galaxy’s Edge.

After we sign off, we include a Spider-Man: No Way Home *spoiler-filled* discussion so be sure to avoid that if you haven’t yet seen the film.

Quantic Nightmare – The Blockade Runner Podcast #202

Much of this week’s episode is focused on Star Wars Eclipe, the newly announced High Republic-era game from developer Quantic Dream. As much as we’d like to be excited about a new project bringing together two of our favorite aspects of Star Wars fandom (High Republic and games), we’re disgusted by Lucasfilm Games choosing to partner with David Cage and Quantic Dream. Ryan walks us through the long history of accusations and abuse from the studio and we ultimately explain why we won’t be buying or playing the game.

After that discussion we save what we (kinda, maybe?) love by discussing a Rogue Squadron production update and Crimson Reign #1.
