Episode 34 - Our Obligatory Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker Reaction Episode!!!

January 6, 2020

Recorded on Saturday and Sunday, January 4 and 5, 2020

Has it been 6 months already?  Ryan and Braden are finally back on schedule, with a plan to stick around for at least the next two months, and hopefully longer!  In this week's episode they take on the obvious topic of discussion:  The Rise of Skywalker!  We share our general thoughts, and then go over what Ryan feels were the four big story beats in the movie.  Braden also shares some audio of a series of interviews about The Rise of Skywalker that he conducted at a family party on the 4th.
