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.
