Tim and Jen went to Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 for one day and one day only and lived to tell about it. Josh experienced it from his cushy office chair and lived to tell about it. Then we came together and talked about it.

Yoda would be proud. In our 100th episode, we talk about (almost) everyone's favorite Star Wars film, The Empire Strikes Back. Luke, Leia, Han, and Lando all want you listen to this episode. We let Jennifer, the one who had never even watched the whole thing through yet, do the synopsis. 

We officially induct members into Nerd Squadron in this episode. Nerd Cinco (Jesus) even made up some rad artwork for everyone. You wanna be in Nerd Squadron? EMAIL MOAR!

As if episode 100 wasn't epic enough, we launched a patreon to pay for our hosting and nickel candy 🍬 addictions. Support us if you're into that. 

This is the best Star Wars podcast in the galaxy because of our amazing listeners and participants. Thank you to EVERYONE that sends in letters, tweets, comments, feedback and posts. You guys rock.
