The Blockade Runner Podcast - Our Hopes for the 4oth Anniversary of Star Wars

March 3, 2017

Show Notes:

John, Chris, and Dan get together to discuss our hopes for the 40th anniversary of Star Wars including what we'd like to see at the Celebration Orlando panel and a potential rerelease of the A New Hope in theaters.

We gave Google Hangouts on Air a try for this episode and it was a lot of fun for us. We'll keep working on this as a possible method of recording shows; incorporating chat and scheduling recordings ahead of time so listeners can watch live are nice perks, plus we get to see each other's dumb faces while we record. Audio quality leaves a bit to be desired though, so I'll be looking to improve that going forward. Let us know what you think about the Hangouts thing using any of the social media links below!

Blockade Runner Podcast - Matt Mickelson Han Solo Fan Film Interview

February 12, 2017

Show Notes:

This episode features an interview I did with Han Solo fan filmmaker Matt Mickelson back in September of 2016. Matt has been working on a Han Solo movie with his daughters and posting episodes online over the past few years, and he's preparing to release an updated, complete cut soon. We talked a bit about making Star Wars fan films, sharing Star Wars with his daughters, Han Solo in The Force Awakens, and a few other Star Wars-related topics. Unfortunately we thought the audio for the interview was lost due to a technical malfunction, but Matt recently sent me a salvaged file. I sound pretty rough (but listenable), but Matt sounds great and he's the one with interesting commentary this time around anyway. The interview isn't exactly current (we're looking forward to Rouge One, for instance), but most of the topics aren't super time-sensitive and now's a great time to check out our discussion since Matt's Han Solo film is set to release online soon.

Episode VIII Title The Last Jedi Revealed!

January 24, 2017

Show Notes: 

The title for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi was revealed today and we couldn't wait to share our thoughts here on The Blockade Runner. We wanted to record an episode as soon as possible discussing the news, so rather than wait until we could all record together, John spoke to Kevin, Ryan, Dan, and Chris individually. Each of us had something a bit different to share and speculate on regarding Episode VIII's new title, but we're all so, so excited to learn more about the film. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us an email or use of the social media links in the show notes below to reach out!

*Disclaimer* Sound quality varies a bit in this one, but it's totally listenable; we just rushed to get this episode out and weren't always able to record under ideal conditions. We think our excitement makes up for it!

Blockade Runner Podcast Episode 18 - Catching Up With Chris on Rogue One and Rebels

December 15, 2016

Show Notes:

Chris joins John to discuss his recent viewing of Rebels season 2 and 3 before we chat about his skepticism regarding Rogue One and Star Wars stand-alones in general. This may not be our most evergreen podcast as Rogue One releases in less than 24 hours here in the States, but if you need something to help you pass the time before it does, give this one a listen. Most of us are SUPER EXCITED for Rogue One, but Chris's concerns are thoughtful, interesting, and also hopefully SUPER WRONG!

Fair warning, there are a few minor issues w/ sound quality on this one, but nothing major. The 2 or 3 minute intro was recorded on an iPhone and is kinda too loud (sorry) and there's a bit of echo on some of the main track. I cleaned it up a bit, but I figured this one doesn't have too long of a shelf-life, so I'd better get it out asap!
