First of all, sorry for the soundquality. A big thank you goes out to listener Flo who helped me salvage a functioning epsiode from the wreckage that were curropted .wav-files.
We spent a whole episode talking about what was going on a long time ago in galaxy far far away. Star Wars influenced a lot of people and paved the way for a lot of things we enjoy today.
Of course we go off topic once and talk about Batman/Young Justice.
