Episode 18 - Top 5 Star Wars Characters (with the Power Cousins!), Fan Negativity, and Captain Underpants!

June 20, 2018

Recorded on Friday and Saturday, June 15 and 16, 2018

We follow-up on one of our shortest episodes with our longest episode yet!  Braden and Ryan are back to recap their last few weeks, including getting to meet Ashley Eckstein!  In their Star Wars segment, they talk about how to treat people whose opinions differ from yours, their official plans for Celebration, and then host a roundtable discussion of favorite Star Wars characters!  The show then gets thrown into the toilet with a discussion of the Captain Underpants series of books.  No, really, there's a lot of potty jokes in those books.

Episode 16 - It’s Complicated… (Final Solo Predictions, Kenobi Rumors, Lego Star Wars, and Infinity War!)

May 17, 2018

Recorded on Sunday, May 13, 2018

If you listen carefully, you can actually hear the pollen!  In our latest, greatest, and congestediest episode yet of Me and My Padawan, Braden and Ryan take a break from sneezing on Mother's Day to talk about Star Wars mothers, the rumors of an Kenobi movie, Jon Favreau's live-action series, and make some final predictions about who and what we will see in Solo: A Star Wars Story!  Braden then takes over for a segment about Lego Star Wars that does not go the way that we thought.  Except the Jek-14 part.  That went exactly as anticipated.  We then wrap up with a venture into spoiler territory to talk about our evening at the drive-in for Infinity War!

Episode 14 - Way Past Bedtime with Solo Toys, Solo Trailer, and Ready Player One!

April 18, 2018

Me and My Padawan

Episode 14 - Way Past Bedtime with Solo Toys, Solo Trailer, and Ready Player One!

Recorded on Sunday, April 15

Technical difficulties lead to a late start to our recording this week.  A little too late of a start for our fearless co-host, who slowly drifted off to dreamland as the show progressed.  Before that happened, though, we talked about the toys announced and (supposedly) released for Solo: A Star Wars Story, as well as some quick reactions to the recently released theatrical trailer.  We also discussed Ready Player One, highlighting the Star Wars easter eggs and references peppered throughout both the book and the movie.  We then cut the show short so that Braden could get to bed.

Episode 13 - What the Heck? (or, The Legend of Darth Revan)

Me and My Padawan

Episode 13 - What the Heck? (or, The Legend of Darth Revan)

Recorded on Friday, March 30, 2018

So... many... Darths!  Plans for lucky episode 13 changed when Ryan's research into the Darths of Legend brought the total number of non-canon Darths up to 20 (and counting), so this week he decides to share with Braden the convoluted tale of Darth Revan and Darth Malak, attempting to draw parallels to events currently considered canon.  They also straighten out their confusion over the Decepticons from last episode before having a random discussion about favorite Decepticons.  Dillon also makes an appearance to teach us about the PJ Masks!

March 13, 2018

Me and My Padawan

Episode 12 - Doctor Sidious Throws A Darth Party

Recorded on Sunday March 11, 2018

I've got a bad feeling about this episode... Ryan and Braden sat down on a lazy Sunday to discuss Patreon, politics, Rebels, Jon Favreau, and all of the Darths that are still canon, with a special focus on what we know about Darth Bane and Darth Plagueis.  The show then quickly takes a turn for the worse when we try to talk about the history of the Decepticons, but Ryan researches the wrong series for their backstory.  Fortunately, we had Dillon awake this week to bring our show back on track!

Episode 11 - Solo Books, Star Wars News, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Recorded on Sunday February 25, 2018

"Don't get cocky, kid!"  After 10 relatively drama-free episodes, this week's episode was a real challenge, from planning to editing to losing the file to editing again.  In this installment, Braden and Ryan talk about the upcoming home release of The Last Jedi, the finished script for Episode 9: Return of the Last Jedi, and then provide a run-down of the Solo tie-in story books, organized by approximate age level.  Braden then gives an overview of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.  All that, plus comics, Legos, and wheels!

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!!!
