In our Thanksgiving episode, we offer a smorgasbord of topics for your Star Wars feast. We have two appetizers on the menu. The first is a discussion on the recently announced Rian Johnson trilogy and a Star Wars live action series. Second, we talk about Vader #8 (butterflies, a Jedi Temple statue, & a Jedi database of Force-sensitive children). For our main course we give our thoughts on who is the most giving and selfless character in Star Wars. For dessert we talk about the Star Wars Holiday Special. We also talk about how we are consuming The Last Jedi information versus how we handled it for The Force Awakens and Rogue One

In the action-packed episode, we discuss what separates character like Anakin, Luke, Rey, and Kylo from other Force wielders. What makes them so powerful? Why are some characters Force users and some only Force sensitive? Where does hard work and perseverance come into play? 

To start the show we read a listener's email that may shed some light on where Darth Maul obtained his original Kyber crystal, and then we talk about the latest season of Star Wars Rebels. In our comics segment we talk about Vader #7 and the return of Jocasta Nu before diving into the latest The Last Jedi TV spot.

In this episode, we discuss The New York Times' recent interview with Rian Johnson. In the interview he states that in The Last Jedi "Rey and Kylo are almost two halves of our protagonist." What does he mean??? What is Luke Skywalker's attitude toward the Jedi? What has Luke been in search of on Ahch-To? We delve deep into this fascinating interview. 

We also discuss the recent comics and answer a listener's email question about Rey's vision in The Force Awakens. We would be honored if you would join us for this packed episode.

In this episode we discuss Jedi and Sith artifacts and the powers they may hold. Do these objects actually hold any power or is it just a perception of power? Are there examples in history or in our lives that can be compared to these artifacts? Do these artifacts change the Force wielder or do they magnify what is already present? How do holocrons and the Bendu factor in? We also discuss the latest episode of Rebels and much more. We'd be honored if you'd join us.
