Hyperthetical – The Novel Bracket Part II
After the news, the Scoundrels begin part II of their discussion to determine the best novel of the new Star Wars canon. If you haven’t heard Part I, we recommend checking that out first.

Case Files, Green Justice, and Scarlet Velocity, and Becca Benjamin from Kanata’s Castle and Tarkin’s Top Shelf.
As every episode does, episode 65 ends with “Silence Fools!” In this edition, Dennis, Jay, and Taxus react to an iTunes review and then discuss the results of the last Twitter poll. Afterwards, they propose a new poll about what new Star Wars content they are most excited to see.
