Rise of Skywalker Trailer Breakdown or Maybe Ian McDiarmid Playing Darth Maul In the Prequels Was The Friends We Made Along the Way – The Blockade Runner Podcast #100

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!

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.

Star Wars: Always and Galaxy’s Edge, Celebration Chicago Updates – The Blockade Runner Podcast #92

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.
