Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels #34: Porg Hunters of Texas

Welcome to episode 34 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Porg Hunters of Texas. While Dennis is away, the Dark Lord of Tax will play. On this episode, Darth Taxus teams up with Jay Krebs and they cover all things porg. Not really. But it is kind of true. However, there are plenty of other things to cover as. So, prepare yourself for episode 34: Porg Hunters of Texas.

Recent Star Wars News

After sharing some Porg-centric poetry, Jay and Taxus turn to the news. The news begins with a discussion of the new Forces of Destiny action figures. Then the news continues with a discussion of, you guessed it, Porgs. In addition, they break down book news from the San Diego Comic Con, Dave Filoni Ahsoka bombs, and an announcement of the composer for the Han Solo movie.

D23 Star Wars Fashion

The show continues as Jay describes the latest Star Wars fashions from Ashley Eckstein and Her Universe. At D23, the voice of everyone’s favorite Togruta, Ahasoka Tano, debuted new designs and hosted a fashion show. Jay shares all the details.

The Last Jedi Sizzle Reel

We Land on Alderaan and Talk D23

Despite his absence from the rest of the show, Dennis returns to join Taxus for a discussion of the Star Wars announcements from D23. They are not alone. Indeed, the guys welcome Richard and Sarah Woloski from Skywalking Through Neverland to the show. Richard and Sarah attended D23 and discuss all the Star Wars announcements related to the Disney Parks.

The Dark Side of Heavy Metal

Galactic Empire, past guests on the show, started touring this year. Recently, their tour brought them to Dallas, Texas, and therefore, Darth Taxus had to be there. Taxus caught up with the band to discuss the progress of the tour and shares their discussion here.

Silence Fools!

Finally, it wouldn’t be an episode of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels without some listener feedback in “Silence Fools!” The discussion of Darth Bane: Rule of Two from episode 33 provoked plenty of discussion on Twitter. Naturally, Jay and Taxus discuss some of their favorite listener Tweets to conclude the show.
