This week we’re taking a close up look at that age old question that’s puzzled millions for decades – SO WHAT THE HECK ARE MIDICHLORIANS? Inspired by a 2013 StarWars.com article by JW Rinzler, we’re talking about how George Lucas’ thoughts on the Force and just who can use it and why have and have not changed, why Sabine’s journey in Ahsoka honors that why people should just relax about the whole microscopic life forms thing. So take a blood sample, listen today and celebrate the love!

Spoiler alert — it blows our minds. So, head to the beach with your boombox, listen today and celebrate the love!
This week we are celebrating 50 years of George Lucas’ incredible second film, AMERICAN GRAFFITI. George was challenged to make something that people could relate to and he brought his youth filled with cruising and music to the screen in a way no one had done before. And because he’s George Lucas, the film was ahead of its time, influential, groundbreaking and paved the way for his little space fantasy movie. Listen as we talk about AMERICAN GRAFFITI, how it got made, the genius of Walter Murch and more! So get in your big chair, call up Wolfman Jack, listen today and celebrate the love!
