Alan, Mark, and Ryder begin the show by discussing the Episode IX casting announcement. What are we most excited about? What surprised us the most?
For our main topic we discuss the Star Wars theme that anybody can become somebody.
-Why do we love this storytelling theme so much in Star Wars?
-What makes for a better story: a character who puts themselves in the underdog situation or someone who is put there by another character?
-Does this theme work for Dark Side characters also?
