Episode 10 - Tenth Episode Extravaganza!  Star Wars News and Listener Q&A

Recorded on Sunday February 11, 2018

It's the 10th episode of Me and My Padawan!  Ryan and Braden look back and choose their favorite episode from their first nine attempts at podcasting, then discuss some recent Star Wars news before diving into some questions sent in by their loyal listeners!  All of the questions, oddly enough, have something to do with Star Wars, so they wrap up by asking each other some questions NON-Star Wars questions.  We also learn a little about a possible future side-project that Braden has in mind!  Many thanks to everyone who sent us questions for making this episode a thing!

Episode 09 - Solo Trailer, Canto Bight, TLJ Visual Dictionary, and Pokemon!

Recorded on Friday, February 2, 2018

Ryan and Braden are back, a week later than planned, and on top of the latest Star Wars news for a change!  In this, their 9th episode, they break physics and travel through time to discuss the trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story.  The episode continues with Ryan sharing his thoughts on Canto Bight, and then the pair take turns picking out interesting tidbits from The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary.  The conversation turns ugly with a chat about Pokemon, but picks up at the end when Dillon reveals the one part of Star Wars that he does enjoy.  We also talk about our plans for our 10th Episode Extravaganza!!!

Episode 08 - Stormtroopers! Power Rangers! Porgs! Wait a minute, Porgs??!?

• January 17th, 2018

Me and My Padawan

Episode 08 - Stormtroopers!  Power Rangers!  Porgs!  Wait a minute... Porgs??!?

Recorded on Monday, January 15, 2018

Ryan and Braden are back and better than ever with double the microphones of previous episodes!  This week, after discussing the Solo trailer (or lack thereof), the family travels the world while sharing their geeky fandoms with each other.  While talking about porgs, they find themselves in Ireland and, for some reason, Kentucky; their discussion about stormtroopers takes them to Europe in the middle of World War I; and after Braden confuses the heck out of Ryan about Power Rangers, they visit Japan to experience the Super Sentai series.  They also discuss losing teeth, morning work, the Kano computer kit, and Super Mario Odyssey.

Happy New Year! 

Ryan and Braden braved the frigid temperatures of the Me and My Padawan home office to record the seventh episode of the podcast after a late night of New Year's celebrations!  They cover a wide variety of topics, ranging from New Year's resolutions, favorite Christmas gifts, and follow-up thoughts on The Last Jedi.  They then delve into a primer on the first 3 books of the Adventures in Wild Space series of junior novels, followed by Braden showing off what he's learned from reading The Lightning Thief.  As a special bonus, if you listen closely, you can actually hear your humble hosts shivering in the cold.

Episode 06 - Our First Thoughts on The Last Jedi

(SPOILERS BEGIN AROUND THE 7 MINUTE MARK)

Recorded on Friday, December 15, 2017 

A little over 12 hours after experiencing The Last Jedi on Opening Night, Braden and Ryan sat down to try and string together some coherent thoughts on the movie, to varying degrees of success.  Note well that there are spoilers.  We warn you in the episode when to turn it off just before the point of no return.  Also, we did fail to discuss porgs.  We apologize for this oversight and will make up for it with some follow-up in a future episode.

Episode 05 - Much Ado About Poe!

Recorded on Sunday, December 3, 2017 

On this fifth episode of Me and My Padawan, Ryan sat down with an overtired (and somewhat giddy) Braden at the end of the first of many long December weekends to discuss (among other things) Thanksgiving weekend, some final predictions for The Last Jedi, Poe Dameron's origin story, and Voltron: Legendary Defender.  The show wraps up with our initial reactions to the Avengers: Infinity War trailer.  After the show, and not included in the podcast, was a discussion on how we will never NOT prepare for a podcast recording session again.

Episode 04 - The Phantasmic Phasma and the Adequate Avengers!

Recorded on Saturday, November 18, 2017

 

What was once unthinkable has finally become a reality, as Braden and Ryan return for a fourth episode of Me and My Padawan.  This week's episode begins with a discussion about birthday weekend at the MMP home office, which included a day trip to Rhode Island Comic Con and a photo op with General Veers.  Our Star Wars chat featured reactions to some exciting new Star Wars projects in the works, Captain Phasma's origin story, and answers to some (mostly sarcastic) listener mail.  We wrap up by revealing how little we know about Marvel with what might be the worst Avengers draft ever recorded.  But hey, at least we had fun, right?  Right?

Ryan and Braden met General Veers himself, Julian Glover, at Rhode Island ComicCon!

Ryan and Braden met Julian Glover (General Veers in Empire Strikes Back; Aragog in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) during the birthday weekend day-trip to Rhode Island Comic Con.

Episode 03 - Let's Give Them Yams

Ryan and Braden are back, for some reason, for another installment of Me and My Padawan.  This week, the conversation begins with Braden offering his thoughts on karate, soccer, and Halloween, followed by Ryan sharing some follow-up about their previous discussion concerning Solo: A Star Wars Story.  After a quick review of the new TV spot for The Last Jedi, Ryan takes Braden through a brief history of Order 66.  The conversation then turns to Lego Ninjago, and a debate over the correct pronunciation of the name "Lloyd."

We hope you enjoy the show!  We sure had a good time making it.  After listening to the show, please let us know what you think!

Episode 02 - Of Trailers and Transformers

Against their better judgments, Ryan and Braden return for a second episode of Me and My Padawan.  In this episode, after running down some not-so-breaking news in the world of Star Wars, the duo discuss the trailer for The Last Jedi from a kids' perspective, and then have a conversation about Transformers: The Movie totally devolve into an argument over whether or not Transformers: Prime is ridiculous.
