This is LONG overdue, but Ben and Ash are finally talking about Ash’s favorite character Jyn Erso this week! Jyn is much more complex than a lot of people give her credit for, and this episode is an enlightening one for sure.
This week, Ben and Ash are joined by Meg from Rogue Podron to talk about… dads? Obviously the big ones get hit on (Vader, Galen Erso, etc.), but of course if you’re familiar with Rogue Podron, you know Legends dads come up as well. Specifically one Hal Horn.
CW: A few minor rape mentions in the context of Game of Thrones
So. The showrunners of Game of Thrones are getting a Star Wars series. What does this mean? Honestly, Ben and Ash couldn’t tell you. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have thoughts on it!
(Ben says: There’s echo in the episode this week. Sorry about that. I couldn’t do much about it.)
Very recently, the Star Wars community lost one of the most beautiful souls it’s ever known in Peter Mayhew. Obviously, this is heartbreaking, but rather than wallow in sadness, Ben and Ash spend this episode celebrating Chewbacca and the impact that he’s had on the Star Wars universe. He’s a wonderful character that is loved by all but somehow still almost universally underrated, as the hosts discover over the course of their discussion. Of course, the obligatory The Rise of Skywalker speculation rears its ugly head as well.
