Episode 14: Star Wars, Good God Y'All!

What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!

Many stars, many wars, but only one podcast episode. We take a meandering look at the religion/fandom/industry/empire that is Star Wars.

Somehow it all comes back to The Truman Show even as we get to geeky video games, choose your own adventure books, and more:
