Brews and Blasters 136: HASCON, JJ Abrams, Frank Sinatra

by Brews and Blasters

There’s a lot to talk about this week, so now’s a good time to invent a new cocktail, walk like Jack Sparrow, and geek out about HASCON and Episode IX!

The summer wind…it’s blowing out, and with it is a FULL debrief on HASCON 2017! Chris and Joe talk to the engineers in charge of the Star Wars line and have plenty of revelations to share! Then, the talk turns to JJ Abrams taking over Episode IX, the 3.75-inch Snoke figure, and plenty of cannolis. Did we mention we invented a new drink? Well, we did, and it’s scary.

Let’s Go, Warheads! The Star Wars Party Starts NOW! It’s time for Brews and Blasters.

Born from the discussions between two friends at a local pub in the historic town of Salem, Massachusetts, Brews and Blasters is your chance to kick back, relax and then enjoy everything about that galaxy far, far away. Your hosts, Chris Salton (founder, The Collectors Hutt) as well as Joe Tavano (founder and editor in chief, RetroZap!) sit down every week to do what would be doing anyway–talk about all things Star Wars, tell some stories, and of course, have a good time.

Join Joe and Chris as they share their love for Star Wars, the most obscure Star Wars characters, Boston’s North Shore, 1980s pop culture and delicious food, and occasionally talk to fascinating people–and friends, like an anthropomorphic packet of crystallized lime.
