Last Shot by Daniel José Older preps us for Solo: A Star Wars Story by bringing us an exciting adventure with Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and a ton of new characters (but also baby Ben Solo). On this episode, we discuss what we liked about the book and how it ties into the saga as a whole. We then discuss key themes throughout the novel: parenting anxiety, the joys of doing what you love, DROID RIGHTS, and change/personal growth. We then swap quotes to analyze. And maybe there's a surprise at the very end of the episode.

Our 50th episode (!!!) is all about Force visions, premonitions, and cave sequences in Star Wars. What do these obstacles mean for our characters? What purpose do they serve in the story, and what do they mean? In part one, we talk about the prequel trilogy and the Clone Wars: Anakin's dreams, Mortis (Ahsoka and Anakin), and even the Clone Wars microseries. In part two, it's all about the original trilogy: Luke's cave sequence and his vision of his friends dying. We also talk briefly about Rebels. In part three, we discuss the sequel trilogy: Rey's vision in The Force Awakens, the mirror cave in The Last Jedi, and Rey and Kylo's visions together. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers!

The finale of Star Wars: Rebels is here and we're here to talk about it. Spoilers ahead! First, Caitlin gives her 30 second recap on this epic finale (A Fool's Hope, Family Reunion, & Farewell). Then, they each give 2 highs and 1 low about the episodes overall. Next, they discuss the story elements of Rebels: what is the state of the Rebellion? How did we feel about the ending? Could we have predicted it would come to this point? What makes a story especially "Filoni" and how do we feel about that? In the character section, we go through each character. We answer a listener email addressing some concerns about women representation in the finale -- and we give our thanks to the creators of the show, as well as the fans.

This episode is all about fan-created media and how it enriches our Star Wars fandom experience. There is no community like the Star Wars community, especially when fans are creating awesome content every day to support their passions. Caitlin and Charlotte are joined by Amy Richau (@amyrichau), writer for StarWars.com and creator of  #365StarWarsWomen, a project chronicling a different woman involved in Star Wars a day. They talk with her about fandom, women in Star Wars, and get to know her story. 
 
Next, they're joined by Danny Pirtle (@DannyPirtle19), creator of a website called Porgology that hosts articles, think pieces, and catalogs the different alien creatures that appear across the Star Wars canon. Danny then asked Caitlin and Charlotte to create a "Star Wars dinner" with only aliens and creatures.
 
Finally, Caitlin and Charlotte discuss two aspects of their fandom: fanfiction and fan-created videos. What's up with the stigma behind fanfiction? What are our favorites and what do we look for in a "good" fanfiction? Why do we love fanvids so much and what is their origin? All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers!

Star Wars: Rebels is in the home stretch... Skytalkers' Fulcrum Files returns to discuss the two emotional episodes, Jedi Night and DUME. Spoilers ahead! First, Caitlin gives her 20 second recap of the episodes. Then, they give their 2 highs and 1 low. They discuss story next: How did we feel about the pacing of these episodes individually and as a two-part arc? Do we think the episode was balanced in giving our characters time to grieve while moving the plot forward towards the next step? In part three, they go through each character and their journeys, and they speculate on the future of the season.

It's REAL! We watched the Super Bowl spot and the official teaser of Solo: A Star Wars Story and have our reactions and thoughts! What do we think about Alden Ehrenreich as Han? Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra? We give our thoughts on the visual language, time period, and potential story elements. Inevitably, we ask: What does this story mean for the future of "anthology" films in Star Wars? Is Star Wars abandoning the different-genre exploration that was promised years ago? This, and of course, what we think of it all, on this special one-take episode of Skytalkers!

Caitlin and Charlotte finish up their Star Wars: The Last Jedi recap podcasts with the final section, the "catch all." In part one, they answer plot-based questions, including: What’s something you would personally add or change? Can you define the force bond? What does "tied on a string" mean? In part two, they answer character based questions. They talk about Reylo. They get emotional. They talk about Carrie Fisher and Leia and redemption arcs. They get emotional. In part three, they speculate about the future of the saga. 

In the episode, Caitlin reads from two books: "Postcards from the Edge" by Carrie Fisher and "The Theater of War" by Bryan Doerries (narrated by Adam Driver).

The Star Wars Escape Pods Network (Devin and Eve from Unmistakably Star Wars and Johnamarie Macias from Rebels Chat & The Wookiee Gunner) join Caitlin and Charlotte for a discussion of all things Star Wars! In part one, they ask: What keeps you coming back to Star Wars time after time? What is the core theme of Star Wars, after all these years? 

In part two, they discuss the new Star Wars: Rebels trailer. One final lesson? Is Ahsoka the convor? What's the future look like for Ezra and Kanan? What are our wants and needs for the end of the series?

In part three, the gang talks The Last Jedi: redemption, themes, and some quick shots (who is better: shirtless Kylo or shirtless Anakin? Throne Room or Kylo vs. Luke?). 

Finally, the group gives their Star Wars dinner picks.

Part two of the Skytalkers in-depth breakdown of Star Wars: The Last Jedi is here with our character section. First, Charlotte and Caitlin dive into the connections that characters have with each other in the film. In TLJ, characters rarely spend time "alone" -- how do these relationships build up (or break down) our characters? Can we compare Force bonds throughout the saga with Kylo Ren and Rey's bond? What does their Force bond mean for the saga and the balance of the Force? Next, they dig deep into the Skywalker family and legacy. Is this the end of the Skywalker line? Finally, they talk about Failure and make some character predictions for episode 9.

Guess what? We’ve been podcasting for ONE WHOLE YEAR! To celebrate, Caitlin and Charlotte are revising their “Star Wars Dinner” picks from their first episode. Then, we take your questions on all things Star Wars opinions, including how we relate to Kylo Ren, what the best thing about starting a podcast is, what figurative “hill” we would have died on last year, and our year in podcasting. Next, we answer some personal questions: What do we want out of 2018? What’s Caitlin’s most embarrassing moment? Finally, we thank so many people who have made this past year the best ever. This episode is very reflective and personal on all things fandom and friendship.

 

Thank you ALL for supporting this show for the past year. If this is your first episode, THANK YOU for clicking download. It means the world. May the Force be with you all!
