Recent Star Wars News

That’s SO Wizard!

Jay is back with another edition of “That’s SO Wizard!” This time, Jay is focusing on Star Wars themed products for Valentine’s Day with suggestions from ThinkGeek and Box Lunch. Plus, she presents her Wizard Award to Big Whiff Candles.

Valentine’s Day Surprise

Before the discussion can get too far, Darth Taxus surprises Dennis and Jay with some special Valentine’s Day messages. Special guests from across the Star Wars and RetroZap podcasting communities share Valentine’s Day sentiments between Star Wars characters. There is a catch, Dennis and Jay have to guess who the special communications are from and who they are for. How do they do? Tune in and play along.

Bounty Hunters

To the officers of the Empire, they are scum. Despite that, the Empire regularly hired them. In addition, Han Solo frequently found himself in their sites. On this episode, the Scoundrels are talking bounty hunters. What makes them so popular with Star Wars fans? Why does the Empire not only tolerate them but employ them? Which ones are our favorites and which bounty hunters are the faces of the profession? The Scoundrels discuss all of this on this episode’s Hyperthetical.

Silence Fools!

Once the bounty hunter discussion is done, the show turns to some listener feedback and community news in “Silence Fools!” In this edition, the Scoundrels read an email about bounty hunters. In addition, they discuss the results of a Twitter poll about potential dark side additions to Battlefront II.
