Me And My Padawan

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.

We hope you enjoy the show!  After giving us a listen, please tell a friend and let us know what you think, either through an iTunes review or via one of the outlets listed below:
