Last year I sat down with the Nerd Lunch crew and Michael May to have a broad conversation about Star Wars. Now the group has reconvened to start drilling into the original trilogy. This episode of the podcast covers Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, or as CT would probably call it “just Star Wars”.
We have a wide smattering of introductions, viewing experiences and history with this movie. Plus since we all re-watched it right before the recording, we bring what we notice now to the table too. There’s even discussion about how much lying takes place. And keep an ear out for my summarization of Han Solo in the detention block.
From how awesome Princess Leia is to our favorite (and least favorite) contributions from the Special Edition, this podcast makes the Kessel Run in about 13 parsecs.
As an added bonus over on their Facebook page Nerd Lunch had a discussion about which Star Wars characters the podcast hosts and frequent guests represent. The discussion ran over onto Twitter as well and somehow according to Facebook I am Padme and according to Twitter I am Leia. Not bad.
Kay grew up wanting to be an astronaut. After seeing Star Wars, she wanted to be Princess Leia, Han Solo, and an astronaut. A voice actor, photographer, and artist who also consults in communications and marketing, Kay spends the little bit of free time she has reading, reviewing, and, of course, making pew pew noises. She would pick up more jobs, hobbies, and fitness routines if she was a Time Lord. You can follow her on Twitter.
