This series just keeps blowing our minds. The visuals, the story-telling, the character development, and the climax of Episode 6 alone had us freaking out ONCE AGAIN, because that seems to be what Andor does to us! For what it's worth, that's the entirety of our episode this week: discussing everything we loved (and many things we questioned...like who the hell IS Uncle Harlo? And WHY did Skeen lie to all of us about his brother? DAMN HIM!) As LeeAnn said: Episode 5 was the build up. Episode 6 was the explosion....and we loved every second of it.

Episode 83: Breaking Down the Kadavo Arc, Part 1: "Kidnapped"
30:39This week we're heading back to The Clone Wars as we break down some of our favorite episodes: The Kadavo Arc. We start with "Kidnapped," a crazy plot that includes Obi-Wan getting the sh!t kicked out of him, Anakin completely losing his temper, and Ahsoka doing her best in the middle of the chaos. Join us as we discuss one of the most notorious Clone Wars stories full of beatings, kidnapping, and A LOT of bruises.
Episode 82: Continuing to Dissect Obi-Wan and Maul's Messy Relationship and its Dramatic Conclusion in "Rebels"
39:40This week we conclude our deep discussion on Obi-Wan and Darth Maul's relationship throughout Star Wars, beginning with "The Lawless" and finishing with the dramatic conclusion between these two linked characters in Rebels episode "Twin Suns." We even discuss Maul's twisted, sordid obsession with Satine and his shrine we catch a glimpse of in Rebels, dissecting what we think the shrine meant and how it shows a new level of Maul's character. In the end, Obi-Wan and Maul are two characters who have been connected from the start, and the compassion Obi-Wan shows Maul in the end shows Obi-Wan's true character. What a full circle story between the two of them. We hope we covered it sufficiently between our previous episode and this week's episode, because as painful as their story is: it's one of the greatest in Star Wars.

Episode 81: Breaking Down the Dumpster Fire that is Obi-Wan and Darth Maul's Relationship, Part 1
37:10Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul's lives have been linked since the beginning: from The Phantom Menace all the way through to Star Wars Rebels, these two characters have shared loss, isolation and emotion together, and have had a constant presence in one another's life. In this episode, we break down the similarities and differences between these two characters, starting with the Phantom Menace through The Clone Wars "Revival" episode. (In next week's episode, we'll pick it back up and continue through their conclusion in Star Wars Rebels episode, "Twin Suns.") We also raise the question of whether it was a smart idea to bring Maul back, and if it has forwarded the Star Wars story in a positive or negative way. Given that we're dedicating two episodes to this dumpster fire of a relationship between Kenobi and Maul - you probably already know our answer!
Episode 80: Time for an Andor Season Finale Freak Out! (SPOILERS)
45:06We. Freaking. Loved. This. Show. Andor was a brilliant work of art that we both absolutely adored. In this episode, we go through our favorite moments from Andor 8-12, including revisiting the epic monologues, gushing about Diego Luna's beautiful portrayal of Cassian (GIVE THIS MAN AN AWARD!!!), spazzing out about Mon Mothma's ruthlessness, and gushing about Maarva'S brick, Brasso's hug, B2EMO's hologram projection, Kino's courage (we will never forget you, Kino!!!), Luthen's sacrifice, and more!!!
Episode 79: Get to Know Your Hosts! Lauren Interviews LeeAnn, Part 2 of 2
37:30This is week 2 of getting to know your hosts, and it's Lauren's turn to ask LeeAnn all the questions! Plenty of the questions are Star Wars related, and many more are off-the-wall and totally unrelated...and prove to be equally hilarious and insightful. Plus, there's the Rapid Fire Star Wars Round at the end, which was a blast to record. Hell, BOTH episodes of Lauren and LeeAnn asking each other questions were a blast to record! We hope you got to know your hosts a little more and laughed along with us.
Episode 78: Get to Know Your Hosts! LeeAnn interviews Lauren with a variety of (hilarious & insightful) questions
40:26This week is the first of two installments of a series we call: Get to know your hosts! To start, LeeAnn interviews Lauren with a number of questions Lauren has not seen beforehand, so her answers are off-the-cuff and both hilarious and insightful. Next week, Lauren will do the same to LeeAnn, and in the end we hope our listeners have fun and get to know their Space Twin hosts a little better!
Episode 77: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Quinlan Vos - An Unexpected but Perfect Pairing
39:05One of our all time favorite Clone Wars episodes is "Hunt for Ziro" where Obi-Wan Kenobi gets paired up with Quinlan Vos. The resulting snark and banter is second to none and made LeeAnn and Lauren instant fans of the roguish Jedi. In this episode, we discuss this hilarious duo, as well as the book Dark Disciple, and Quinlan's mention in the Kenobi series. We hope you enjoy!
Episode 76: Reviewing "Tales of the Jedi"
44:34All six episodes of "Tales of the Jedi" dropped at once, so of course we watched them all at once...but our review may NOT be what you'd expect from us (Hint: we did not like the majority of the episodes.) We'll explain why, with a few of our opinions being rather, erm...strongly-worded (Another hint: LeeAnn goes off!) At the end of the day, we love Dave Filoni, we love The Clone Wars, and we love anything that revisits the characters that we've come to know and love, but "Tales of the Jedi" missed the mark for us in many ways. Major spoilers ahead for those who have not watched all the episodes.
Episode 75: Gushing About Andor Episode 7 (SPOILERS)
45:12Andor episode 7 was emotional for both of us. Whether it was Cassian and Maarva's heartbreaking conversation, Mon Mothma's tense interactions, or the flashbacks that revealed more about Clem's fate, we were moved by the amazing performances (and the truly incredible script!). We chat about our favorite moments...and a few moments we didn't quite like. One thing is for certain, we both agree Andor is one of the best things to come out of Star Wars, and we can't wait to see what happens next!
Episode 74: A Conversation About Art, Creativity, and Star Wars with Artist Jennie Marie Studio
59:58Today we have something a little different for you. Last week LeeAnn was traveling and didn’t have time to record with me, so I dug into our archives and dusted off an interview I did with Jennie Marie Studio that I recorded about a year ago. Jennie’s made a name for herself hand painting glass candle votives. Most of them feature Star Wars scenes, but she’s also been known to do Marvel, DC, and lord of the rings. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen my unboxing video of the custom commission she painted for me depicting the dark and brutal relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. It’s truly a masterpiece. Follow Jennie's instagram @jenniemariestudio In this interview, we discuss everything from Jennie’s formal art training in Florence, to how the American school system didn’t work for our creative brains, to how her teenage love for Luke Skywalker eventually led to her current business venture painting custom votives. We had a fabulous time recording this and ended up chatting for almost 3 hours. This is a shortened version, but if you’d like to listen to the full conversation, please consider joining our Patreon where we post complete interviews, episode extras, and so much more.
