Special Episode Delta – Throne Room Scene ASMR

Something different this week. We’re releasing this as a “Special Episode” instead of a regular episode.  We do a script-read of the throne room scene from RotJ, but in ASMR-style.  We’ve been talking about doing this for quite some time, and finally just took a few minutes to record this for fun.  Let us know what you think!  (it’s our first time, don’t be too harsh!)

Episode 64 – Bridges

Bring your climbing gear, because this week we go deep!  In the training we do, and in many other aspects of life as well, we all have to deal with barriers and creating bridges.  Sometimes it’s physical, sometimes it’s all in our heads ultimately.  The guys get personal this week and talk about some of their personal challenges, and they relate them to training as well as other parts of life.  If Luke had said “I’m just a poor farmboy, I can’t do what you’re asking of me” then it would have been a real short franchise!

I Have A Bad Feeling About This 2018-03-26

It’s another NSFW episode of “I Have A Bad Feeling About This”!  Doug, Marina, and Loring sit down and have some “real talk” about characters in the Star Wars movies which were disappointing, and which were pleasantly surprising.  Loring goes a little dark, Doug likes to push buttons, and Marina is just trying to hold it together.  We even had to bleep out a couple things – yeah, it’s like that this week.  As always, opinions are those of the individual hosts and do not represent the views of San Diego Sabers as a group (in case there were any concerns).

Episode 60 – Flailers, Fighters, and Duelists

Eric recently spent a series of training sessions talking to the group about the difference between Flailers, Fighters, and Duelists.  On this weeks’s show he shares the differences and approaches on these types of people – applicable not just for lightsaber fighting, but with many areas and skills we acquire in life!

We return again to the time when we ask ourselves, “What If…” – and this week, what if, in Empire Strikes Back, Luke had said “Yes!” and joined Darth Vader to rule the galaxy as father and son?

Episode 58 – A Padawan Without A Master

This is an episode we’ve wanted to do for a while.  What are your options when you really want to learn lightsaber combat, but you don’t have an Eric (our Battlemaster) around to learn from?  How do you learn when all you have is YouTube?  This week we bring on Kaden Stetler from the Rebel Chatter podcast and Rebel Cause Lancaster (PA) to talk with Eric about his process in starting to learn lightsaber combat on his own.  Eric gives Kaden some advise on things to think about and focus on.  Good things to know for anyone just starting out!

I Have A Bad Feeling About This 2018-02-19

Welcome to the first episode of SDS’s “I Have A Bad Feeling About This…!”  About once a month, Doug, Loring, & Marina are taking over with their own new show.  You’ll get to learn more about San Diego Sabers from their own perspective as people with very diverse backgrounds, their experiences with our group, and also how they view Star Wars.  We’d love your feedback, let us know what you think.  And also let us know if you have questions for them!  Somehow we’ll make them answer those questions for you!

Episode 56 – The 2nd Party [NSFW]

We recently celebrated the San Diego Sabers Second Anniversary by having a little party. We had a great time (even without cake this time!) and recorded some of the antics, much like last year – but with less screaming. Enjoy the Star Wars Mad Libs!  You know how people can be – this is definitely not safe for work, or children, or small animals.

Episode 55 – Rapid Fire Deathmatch

Something new from the guys this week – Rapid Fire Deathmatch!  Instead of one or two in-depth games, Robert fires off some quick matches, round after round, at Eric & Steve!

And if you don’t know – listen to the very end for the easter eggs!  It’s easy to duck out once you hear the credits – but for a while now we’ve been leaving you something special for your ear-holes.  Today it’s more on the educational side of things.  Something to augment your Star Wars trivia knowledge.

This marks the end of our first year of podcasting!  In our Season 1 finale, we reflect back on all the things that have happened in this last year – and it was a lot more than we thought! Marina joins us to help with this herculean effort, as well as giving us a TON of insight into what we might expect with Galaxy’s Edge!  Also, we have an interview with our friends Fode & Beed from the Star-B-Q podcast, talking about TLJ.  It’s a long one, folks, so get ready!

Episode 49 – The Last Jedi Instant Reaction

*** SPOILERS ***

If you have not watched Star Wars The Last Jedi, we recommend you come back to this after you have seen the movie!!

 

Okay. Wow.  Breathe.  Just Breathe.  To kick off this instant reaction episode, we do a couple minutes of final pre-game before entering our local theatre and gorging ourselves on porgs, lightsabers, lightside, darkside, space battles, and planets!  We won’t say much here, just listen to the episode once you’re ready.

Episode 48 – The Last Podcast (Before TLJ)

We’re absolutely on the edges of our seats with anticipation for The Last Jedi.  It’s mere days away and we can’t have a conversation with anyone we know without talking about it somehow!  So we took time out at practice to get our final, last, pre-TLJ thoughts out for this week’s episode.  The next time we talk (on air) we will have seen the movie!  YEARS of waiting finally satisfied, and allegedly in new and unexpected directions!

Episode 47 – With Great Power

“With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” – ok, not trying to cross into the MCU, but being an effective fighter also means being safe.  On the heels of talking about tournaments last week, this week we dive into safety – not only reviewing gear, and how we’ve seen it evolve in our group this last year, but also how to be a safe fighter – physically as well as mentally.

Episode 46 – Lightsaber School Tips

We were recently asked if we could throw some tips out about how to run a lightsaber training school as well as how to run tournaments. We brought Loring & Marina on to the show this week to talk with Eric, Robert, & Steve about how we’ve organized our group (reasons why we’ve done some of the things we’ve done) and also talk about the various aspects we’ve seen in running and participating in tournaments.

Episode 44 – Swords & Sabers vol 2

On this week’s episode, we go deep again! We’re back talking about the cross-over between real-world martial arts, swordplay, and lightsabers!  We’re re-joined by the Main Man himself, Fode, from the Star-B-Q podcast, and also joined by our friend Keith, head of the Hawaii Saber Academy and Precision Parkour!  There’s a lot of discussion on the logistics of fighting, the philosophies behind the martial arts, the use of swords, and the lightsaber combat forms.  Get your ear-holes ready for some really good stuff!!

Episode 43 – What If… Luke & Leia (pt3)

Finally – the conclusion of what has become a trilogy!  It’s been a long ride down the rabbit hole, but really have had a ton of fun with this “What If…” posed to us by Kyle from Tumbling Saber!  This week we finish it up by pondering on if Luke & Leia were swapped at birth, but this time the force powers (one stronger, one weaker in the Force) followe the planet, not the person – so Leia (on Tatooine) is the stronger Force-user, and Luke is the less-developed/weaker one.  It’ll be 40 mins of pure fun and crazy speculation!

This week, Robert walks us through the opening episodes of the final season of Star Wars Rebels!  It’s fun & goofy and let’s you catch up on what’s going on. 

DISCLAIMER: The audio quality isn’t up to our normal standards; there was a lot of background noise (more than normal for when we record at Helms Brewery); we did our best to remove and minimize it so you weren’t distracted from the show dialogue.

Episode 40 – SD Maker Faire

About a week ago (Oct 7-8, 2017, that is) we exhibited/demo’d/sparred at San Diego Maker Faire!  We had a fantastic time – it was busy, it was intense, it was incredible!  We talk about our experience this year (our 2nd year there), with a few tangents & rabbit holes along the way.  Also, listen through to the end – we included a couple out-takes after the outro – ENJOY!

Special Episode Charlie – The TLJ Trailer

We had to. We had no choice. We couldn’t help ourselves.  

The Star Wars Episode 8 “The Last Jedi” trailer was finally released – so we do what all good Star Wars geeks do, we talk about it.  At length!  We hope you enjoy our over-analysis and goof-ball way of looking at the trailer.

Episode 38 – What If… Luke & Leia (pt1)

Apparently we did so well last time, Kyle from TumblingSaber sent us another What-If scenario!  This time around we start to explore how everything – and I do mean EVERYTHING – changes if Luke and Leia had swapped places when they were split up at birth.  Let that sink in for a moment.  We decided this had to be a two-part episode.  We go quite far in part 1, with more coming in the concluding episode soon!

Episode 37 – Directors & Trolls

For those who depend on us for their Star Wars news – you might want to re-think your life.  Definitely avoid deathsticks.  Meanwhile, this week we do a quick catch-up on recent Star Wars news.  Just this once, though.  We do this as a public service.

Episode 36 – Books You Say?

Another episode inspired by one of our team who wanted to know what are the new canon books that are worth reading.  You might not know the entirety of the list of new canon books (since Disney’s “reset”).  We do a walk through of all the non-young-adult/non-kid novels (in the interest of time) to provide an overview of everything that’s out up until now.  

The full list of new canon books can be found here:
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_canon_books

The “she knows mind control” sound-bite comes from Kurt Russell’s audition for the role of Han Solo in 1976:

Several of the original audition tapes from various actors/actresses have been put on YouTube.  Check them out and see how Star Wars could have turned out!

Episode 35 – Swords & Sabers

A very special episode this week – We have Fode from the Star-B-Q podcast back with us, and also Alan Venable from Phoenix Saber Academy & Saber Knights returns to the show.  Both are skilled martial artists with rich backgrounds, and together with Eric, our Battlemaster, we tackle a question brought to us from one of the team (Dennis if you must know).  We were asked to talk about the various types of real-world swordplay, what’s similar, what’s different about them – and since we’re a Star Wars podcast from a lightsaber combat group, how do those relate to saber combat.  The guys get quite in-depth on different types of eastern and western swordplay styles, different weapons, with ties back to lightsaber combat forms and techniques.  Definitely our most technical (and longest) episode so far.  

You can find Fode & Beed on the Star-B-Q Podcast:

And Alan and his groups on Facebook:

Episode 34 – Hanging with H1H

This week, you are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, HOME ONE HANGOUT!  We have Mike Moriarty on from the Home One Hangout podcast where we talk about Star Wars memories, The Last Jedi predictions – and somehow pulled porg sandwiches keep coming up?  

Many thanks to Mike for taking the time to chat with us!  Check out Home One Hangout on FB and Twitter, and find their blog at http://homeonehangout.wordpress.com

Episode 33 – What if Vader Survived?

This week, Kyle from the SWCommonwealth podcast Tumbling Saber sent us in a “What if…” question.  We’ve never seen Eric so happy!  Some questions aren’t as simple as they sound, and some have far-reaching implications.  So take 30 mins and have a listen, see what you think and let us know if you agree with us.

Episode 32 – News with a Z!

It has been quite a while since we did a news roundup – and can you believe it’s only been a month since D23?  It seems like a lot of come down the pipe in the last 4 weeks!  So if you haven’t been keeping up with things (you probably have, we know you!) we’re going to do a quick (not really) review of the news from D23 until now.  BTS trailer. EW Article. Ron Howard. Porgs. Chewie & the Porgs. Porg Chops. Apparently it’s all about the Porgs now.  Porg ON!  And we also touch on upcoming SDS events as well.  Oh, and Dylan, we got ya man!

Episode 31 – Midi-who? Midi-What?

Midichlorians – like ’em? Hate ’em?  They exist either way.  This week we take on the controversial topic and just talk through both sides of the equation.

Episode 30 – Spotlight: Loring

It may become a new tradition – as we have a newly-promoted Knight, we bring Loring on-air this week to interview him and get his insights into his training, his origin story, and talk a little Star Wars knowledge.

Episode 28 – #SDCC2017 & #PHX

What a week!  We held a cross-school lightsaber tournament on Wednedsay, and then spent the next 4 days with the guys from Phoenix Sabers at San Diego ComicCon – not just as attendees, but we had a table in the gaming area, did demos, talked to people, and maybe made some new friends.  Maybe.  But to wrap up this week, Robert & Steve chat with Alan from Phoenix Sabers (now known as the Saber Borg of Phoenix) to talk about the tournaments this week, SDCC, and SaberLove(tm).

Episode 27 – Pros & Cons

It’s con-season!  So many conventions happening this time of year, especially with the big San Diego Comic Con (International) happening in our back yard.  So in advance of that crazy-house happening, we’re going to talk about cons this week.  Big cons, small cons – things about cons you like and don’t like – the anxiety that some people have going to cons!  And then some shameless (shameful?) self-promotion of “SteveCon” (Cassian said I had to).

Episode 26 – What If…Qui-Gon

This week, something completely new!  Eric, Robert, & Steve explore what might have happened if Qui-Gon Jinn lived and trained Anakin.  The possibilities are mind-blowing!  Anakin may have not lost his hand.  He might have come to terms with sand.  James Earl Jones’ career may have been ruined!

Episode 25 – The Search for Snoke

“Who is Snoke?” is one of the questions Star Wars fandom has been obsessed with since Episode 7 came out.  So we’re going there!  We’ve pulled up a bunch of Snoke Theories… ranging from the absolutely silly to ones that may actually be plausible!  While at Helms Brewery, we take the next hour to discuss them in depth (maybe more than they deserve) – find out which ones survive, and which ones die in a horrible, firey, painful death!

Episode 24 – Padawan Roundtable

“A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.”  At the request of our newest Knight, we brought our Padawans together to discuss their experiences in our training program.  If you’ve ever wondered how it feels to be a Padawan in the real world (outside Star Wars), which goes well-beyond just lightsaber training, this is the episode for you!

Episode 23 – New News

We haven’t caught up on Star Wars news lately, not since SW Celebration in April.  We’ll catch up with the headlines (sprinkled with our flavourful commentary), and in the second half of the show we’ll talk through the big Vanity Fair article on The Last Jedi.

Episode 22 – Knight Day Deathmatch

At our first “Knight Day” special training session, we grabbed Doug & Jason to help us run a couple of Deathmatches.  Does having Knights do Deathmatches make a Deathknight?  Listen to us talk about the different between Cool Grievous and Uncool Grievous!  What exactly is a Kenobikovsky?  Find out here!

Episode 21 – The Prequel Hatred

Since The Phantom Menace came out in 1999, there have been opinions spanning the spectrum about the prequel trilogy. Why do so many people hate the PT? Why do some think it’s fantastic? This week Robert, Eric, & Steve discuss their views on this sometimes controversial topic and share their experiences. Sometimes it just depends on your point of view!
