Episode 156 : The Sunny Day in the Void Appreciation Society

This week, Jason and Gabe welcome you to the first meeting of The Sunny Day in the Void Appreciation Society!  Join us as we take a look back at George Lucas’ favorite episode of Clone Wars!  How does this odd tale of a tiny frog man and some droids actually contain the essential DNA and thoughts of not only the Star Wars saga, but THX-1138 and just about all of Lucas’ work?  Want to understand the saga on a different level?  Feel, don’t think, trust your instincts and be ready to adapt just like Colonel Gascon! It’s a look back at one of Clone Wars’ most misunderstood episodes that’ll have you watching it again in a whole new way. 

PLUS: Star Wars Celebration Chicago is heating up with guests and we are so not ready!  Will Canady be there?  Would Rick “Dude” McCallum show up?  

So escape the prison of your mind and celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!!
