Me And My Padawan

Episode 22 - Science Special: Could A Lightsaber Cut Through Captain America’s Shield? Also, Paw Patrol.

August 16, 2018

Recorded on Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Braden and Ryan were joined for the full show this week by the current youngest padawan, Dillon!  They discussed some Star Wars news before using (pseudo) science to answer Uncle Ryan's question from the 20th Episode Spectacular, and most likely come to an incorrect conclusion.  Along the way, we get constant reminders about why having a 3 year old as a guest on a full episode is both awesome and horrible.  Towards the end of the episode, Dillon gets a chance to speak from the heart as it concerns Paw Patrol.

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:
