Since Lizzy derailed the episode so hard last week (we love you Lizzy), Ben and Ash take the time THIS week to delve a little bit further into the TROS teaser released at D23 last week. But because Ash is on the podcast, they spend WAY too much time discussing Han Solo first.
For Obroa-skai Walkers, Byn is reading Shatterpoint. This means he’s thinking a lot about the Dark Side. So that’s what he and Ash are talking about this week! Of course, there’s plenty of talk about Kylo Ren and Palpatine in TROS as well.
This week, Ash isn’t here and it sucks. The literal pits. But, to save the podcast at the last possible minute, Danny from Rogue Podron swoops in to fill the cohost role this week! It’s no secret that we love Rogue Podron over here at the Skyhoppers Podcast, and we’re super happy to have Danny on finally. However, we’re gonna have to do it again when Ash is actually here so we can have a proper episode. Danny brings lots of lovely talk about Resistance, favorite critters in Star Wars, and the Star Wars Creature Madness Bracket, which is a HUGE deal for a lot of Star Wars Twitter.
In the inaugural epsiode of The Palpacast, Adrian Ash, Ben, and Swara come together to talk about why they love this diabolical and malicious baddy in a Galaxy Far, Far Away. We each talk about when we first encountered Palpatine, what we made of him then and what we make of him today, discuss why we love villains so much, and speculate on how Palps returns in The Rise of Skywalker!
Listeners! This week’s episode is one based pretty much entirely on wishing and speculation. That basically means that Ben and Ash basically just spend an hour talking about things that feel are missing from Star Wars. Not in a negative way, but rather things that they would just like to see! It’s pretty unfocused, in classic Skyhoppers style.
In this VERY special episode of the podcast, Ben and Ash are joined by Brooklyn of Twitter and A Star Wars Story podcast fame! Brooklyn has a bit of a different perspective regarding the possible redemption of Kylo Ren than Ben and Ash, so having her on to discuss that seemed like a no-brainer. A good one for sure! Also, RIP MoviePass.
Well. Ben and Ash were going to talk about Resistance this week, but Ben decided he’d rather come across as WAY saltier than he really is about Galaxy’s Edge. And then somehow the conversation goes towards marketing in Star Wars, and then Canon vs. Legends? It’s a weird and wandering episode this week, but the discussion is worth the lack of strong direction.
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.)
