Now here is this week’s Podcasts in Review…

A More Civilized Podcast: Episode 67 they go over the news, then they discuss all the deaths in Star Wars. They start off by approaching each film and looking at the stats of all the people who dies and which factions, so there’s a lot of numbers, but it’s pretty interesting. To be honest, it would be good info for an article. Afterwards, they focus on some of the specific deaths and even tackle the subject of how they would want to die in Star Wars. Good episode. Interesting.

Fly Casual: Episode 248 they talk food, arcade places, Zombieland 2, seafood, Stan Against Evil, Watchmen, leaked ending of The Rise of Skywalker (I skipped ahead to avoid spoilers but there’s also a spoiler segment at the end of the episode so I’m not sure how much they get into that early on). I jumped back in around the one hour mark and they discussed the Benioff and Weiss news, Hayden Christensen at Galaxy’s Edge, the George Lucas reaction videos, and for their main discussion, they talk about The Bridge on the River Kwai and whether it’s better than Star Wars. The episodes ends with a spoiler discussion of TROS which I skipped.
