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!

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!

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!

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??!?

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.

(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.
