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.
