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.

BR 92 Cover

We start this week’s episode out by sharing our appreciation for Topher Grace and Jeff Yorke’s Star Wars: Always before moving onto breaking down last week’s Galaxy’s Edge impressions and updates (via Anthony Breznican and EW). We wrap up this (long) show by discussing the recent panels and guests announced for Star Wars Celebration Chicago.

Also, John takes a weird heel turn during our discussion of Galaxy’s Edge selling generic Jedi robes. Sorry about that.

The Blockade Runner Podcast – Our Hopes for the 4oth Anniversary of Star Wars

40th-tall-2Download this episode (right click and save)

Show Notes:

John, Chris, and Dan get together to discuss our hopes for the 40th anniversary of Star Wars including what we’d like to see at the Celebration Orlando panel and a potential rerelease of the A New Hope in theaters.

We gave Google Hangouts on Air a try for this episode and it was a lot of fun for us. We’ll keep working on this as a possible method of recording shows; incorporating chat and scheduling recordings ahead of time so listeners can watch live are nice perks, plus we get to see each other’s dumb faces while we record. Audio quality leaves a bit to be desired though, so I’ll be looking to improve that going forward. Let us know what you think about the Hangouts thing using any of the social media links below!
