Episode 381 – 50 Years of American Graffiti

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!

Episode 379 – Bark at the 9 Moons of Endor

This week it’s a Halloween treat as we get spooky with a question that has haunted us for decades – what is the deal with the 9 moons of Endor?!  If Endor is a moon, then what’s the planet and can we even call the place at the end of Return of the Jedi an actual planet?  And what’s the real world scientific connection to all of this madness? We’re all learning in this gas giant of an episode!  

PLUS – the epic final SNOKETOBERFEST of the year!
