Talking Bird

We are just days away from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and Jon and Robert are done speculating. Instead, they kick off their boots, crack open some Jawa Juice (Ewwwww. That sounds gross. It was just beer, kids) and read some listener mail before recording commentaries over two classic Star Wars "making-of" documentaries.

You are free to listen to this episode "a la carte", but it really works better if you sync it up to the specials. Otherwise, there are times of silence, between the sounds of sipping. (Sync it up, please. Don't listen to us sip). Enjoy?

Special #1 "The Beginning" (1999)

Special #2 "The Making of Star Wars" (1977)

contact us (no spoilers).


On a personal note, I think I can speak for Jon & myself in thanking you for listening over the last six months and even if "The Force Awakens" doesn't turn out to be everything we hoped for, we still truly enjoyed having the opportunity to talk to you about it every week (or so). See you after the holidays. Peace. -RZ

Less than ten days from the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jon & Robert are struggling to avoid spoilers. Topics covered: George Lucas's faint praise, Joss Whedon vs George Miller, JJ screwed up Star Trek, and much much more. Why read this paltry recap, the proof is in the pudding. LISTEN.

Just over two weeks away from the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jon & Robert hit the ground running with a lively discussion of Steven Spielberg throwing his old buddy George Lucas under the bus. Robert confesses his anxiety about the whether or not this movie is going to suck or not. Jon fixates on Adam Driver's acting techniques, his face and his "Kylo Ren" voice. They discuss movie marketing like two dudes from Hollywood. LOTS of soundtrack talk, with emphasis on SCHERZO.

This one was extra fun to be a part of. If you don't want to listen to fun...well...that's on you.

Let us know you exist



Thanks for listening
