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!

Episode 42 – Rebels, Bro!

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:

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 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!

“Space Hippie” credit goes to the Ben & Ash @ The Skyhoppers Podcast (http://skyhopperspodcast.libsyn.com/) #SWCpod

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.

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!

Star Wars Celebration gave us many things to think about – and gave Eric a LOT of new Snoke theories!  Listen in this week as we discuss the trailers and expectations for Rebels Season 4 and The Last Jedi!  Maybe Rey is related to Snoke!  If Hera and Kanan had a child, what would it look like?

Episode 13 – Sabers & Clubs

Hi Again!  This week, Robert & Steve force Eric to talk about types of lightsabers, the various saber companies, and then get him to pull out his secret notebook to discuss, in his humble opinion, the different types of lightsaber groups there are out there.  So if you’re new to lightsaber work, or you’re a long time practitioner, tune in and find out about what lightsaber training can look like!  Special thanks to Marina, one of our padawans & member of SDS Clan Delta-Bravo for the topic suggestion this week!

Episode 09 – Deathmatch 1 & 2

We’re doing something new, something quirky. Remember Celebrity Deathmatch? This isn’t it. But what if we chose two Star Wars characters and pitted them against each other? Today we’re serving up to helping of Deathmatch – listen in to see who’s going to fight whom! (not who, whom!) Sometimes it’s a pretty hefty fight, sometimes it’s for the whimsy! But we’ll talk through it and figure out who should win.

Please tell us if you like this or not! We have more lined up if you do! If you hate it, ok, we’ll throw that piece of paper away and find a new one!

Episode 08 – IRL

In this week’s show, Robert, Eric, and Steve talk about Jedi classes, lightsaber colors, and the correlation to characteristics that we see in real life with people – the Star Wars IRL cross-over!  Do you know what class of Jedi you would be?  Tune in this week & hear directly from Battlemaster Eric Main what he looks for in the classes – do you have what it takes?

Special Episode Bravo – Now We Are One

No one should listen to this.  Seriously.  Well, the first part is great actually (thanks to Robert, Eric, Kevin, Dennis, and Marina!).  But the rest of it…it’s a bunch of crazy lunatics playing Star Wars trivia.  It’s loud.  It’s not family friendly.  Although it was a lot of fun!  I don’t know – judge for yourself.  But you have been warned.

Special Episode Alpha – Force Storm Entertainment

We had the guys from Force Storm Entertainment come down & talk with us about their YouTube channel, about sabers, martial arts, and Star Wars!
