Brews and Blasters 179: You’re Practically a Warlock

by Brews and Blasters

Star Wars and Halloween got together like chicken and parmigiana, so why does this Star Wars Halloween episode spiral out of control?!

Well, we tried to do an episode about Star Wars and Halloween, but it turns out one of the Brews and Blasters hosts doesn’t really love Halloween so we start spiraling…and end up in a great conversation about Gary Kurtz, the long-lost Making of The Empire Strikes Back documentary by Michel Parbot, and a lot more. Toss in some stellar email, a killer Oppo Award and an interstellar NeedEm GotEm, and you got a stew baby! And a podcast episode. Whatever. 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.
