Geek Universe Radio Star Wars Holiday Special
Broadcast the week of 12/21/15...IT'S FINALLY HERE!!! Celebrating the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we bring you our Geek Universe Star Wars Holiday Special. We have guests, fans, and friends of the show joining us to talk about the past, present, and future of one of our favorite franchises.
First up, Van Allen Plexico (host of the White Rocket Podcast) gives us his thoughts on Episode VII. What did he like, what did he have problems with, and much more.
Then, Brian Cronin from legendsrevealed.com returns with more urban legends surrounding the original Star Wars trilogy. Did a car accident change part of The Empire Strikes Back? What steps did George Lucas take to make sure A New Hope wasn't seen as just a "kiddie movie"? And what was the reason Han Solo didn't die during the Battle of Endor in Return of the Jedi? Find out as Brian separates the truth from the legend.
Next, we are joined by Superfan Jason Shepherd, whose collection of Star Wars toys and memorabilia helped him win the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Biggest Star Wars Fan contest. Jason discusses his collection and how the merchandising helps make Star Wars so popular.
We wrap things up with Van and Jason giving their predictions and theories about where the new trilogy might go in Episode VIII. J.J. Abrams has left Rian Johnson some big shoes to fill and we discuss what's in store for Rey, Finn, BB-8, and Kylo Ren.
From the dangerous minds behind the 30 Minutes of Geek podcast, it's even more great guests, nerdy conversations, and geek humor...now on the radio!!! Because the weekend demands more than 30 Minutes of Geek, it's GEEK UNIVERSE with Jim Yelton! Nationally Syndicated on the GLN Radio Network and streaming on-demand through geekuniverseshow.com
