Episode #183: Star Wars: Hope & Empire

April 30th, 2016

Episodes IV & V  (VI will be the next episode)

Finally what some of you have been waiting for - a look at the sleeper hit series of the 70's & 80's.  Even those who have avoided seeing Star Wars films cannot deny how enTRENCHed they are in the social psyche.  Apparently they mean so much to us that we couldn't wrangle them into a single episode!

This may feel a bit different, as there is a significance beyond just viewing the films.  With this & the upcoming episode, we discuss some of the social phenomena along with personal experiences surrounding the films.  

With few small exceptions, we actually don't spoil it for those who may opt to watch them after hearing us babble on about them..  we won't FORCE anyone to see them, of course.  

Naturally, we used as many opportunities to include songs from the late great Prince - a terrible loss to powerful, lasting music coming from a man unafraid of looking and being exactly what he wanted..

Here is the video for the song we used in the outro - ragtime cantina.

Here is the link for Vader Sessions.
