Talking Bird

Episode 73 of your favorite Star Wars podcast finds Jon & Robert with "The Last Jedi" on the brain. They don't think Woody Harrelson is playing Garris Shrike, but they want to see how Grand Admiral Thrawn thinks in Timothy Zahn's forthcoming novel.

Is Star Wars keeping Marvel comics afloat? Doctor Aphra is becoming the Bird Boys favorite new comic, despite her crappy dad.

They also review "Star Wars: Rebels" Sabine-centric episode "Trials of the Darksaber" and wonder why it took so long to give our favorite Mandalorian graffiti artist her due.

That, and much more on TB:TSE #73

Enjoy and thanks for listening
