Episode CXXX - I Have A Del Meeko Problem

1/18/2019
More
This week, Ben and Ash are joined by the Iden Versio expert of Star Wars fandom herself: Bria! The episode is meant to be about Iden in particular, but if you know anything about this podcast, you KNOW the conversation of course extends out to Inferno Squad in general. Bria has a lot of really unique viewpoints and has very clearly thought a LOT about Inferno Squad, so she's a joy to have on this episode (even if she makes it a point to break hearts over these fictional characters). Do us a...

Episode CXXIX - Be Afraid of Palpatine's Galaxy Gun

1/11/2019
More
This week, the Skyhoppers bring their first series of episodes to a bittersweet end: Ben and Ash are talking about Empire's End (the conclusion to Dark Empire, not the Chuck Wendig book). It's WILD. If you haven't listened to our episodes about Dark Empire (Episode XIII) or Dark Empire II (Episode LXXXVII) or read the comics/listened to the audio dramas themselves, you should definitely start there or it's gonna feel even more wild. Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon! We give you a...

Episode CXVIII - Banished to the Shadow Realm

1/4/2019
More
This week, Ben and Ash come out of NOWHERE and talk about superweapons in Star Wars?? What's that about?? You'll have to listen and find out! Star Wars certainly isn't a stranger to them, and we've got all of your favorites this week. Assuming one of your favorites is litigating Starkiller Base. Again. Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon! We give you a little each week, and we hope you feel that we deserve a little in return: https://patreon.com/theskyhopperspodcast Places to find...

Episode CXVII - Fran the Gran Loves Her Naboozer

12/28/2018
More
This episode is pure chaos, but in the best way. We have a grand total of six whole people on The Skyhoppers Podcast this week because this is the first edition of the Skyhoppers Trivia Challenge! Ben and Ash are joined by Skyhoppers Patrons Dakota, Mike, Darren, and Patron/friend of the show/repeat guest Jason of Holy Star Wars! And the best part? You can play along at home! Make sure to share your scores with us on Twitter or through an email! Slight correction: Han says they're in the...

Episode CXVI - 10 Reasons Luke Skywalker Is Problematic

12/21/2018
More
In the (sort of) Skyhoppers tradition of doing something special around Christmastime, Ben and Ash watched A New Hope and did a commentary track this week! There aren't too many periods of dead silence, so feel free to just watch the movie in your head if you have to. Or put it on while you watch the movie with friends or family this holiday season!

Episode CXXV - Bad Take Generator

12/14/2018
More
Listeners, The Last Jedi has been out for exactly one year (if you're listening to this on the day it comes out), and as we've decided is customary here at the Skyhoppers Podcast, Ben and Ash are seeing how it holds up a year later! (They both still like it. No surprises there.) Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon!

Episode CXXIV - I Love Maul

12/7/2018
More
For December's character episode, the Skyhoppers dive deep on the most likely reason that Ben loves the red and black combo as much as he does: (Darth) Maul! His story has already been mostly told, so the future of this character is uncertain. Will he show up again? Do we want him to? Get Ben and Ash's take here! They also talk about easter eggs in Star Wars? Not quite sure how they get to that. Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon! We give you a little each week, and we hope you feel...

Episode CXXII - Mail Morgana

11/23/2018
More
This week, Ben and Ash spin off of the politics episode they were supposed to do this week and instead focus on the politicians themselves, specifically the various leaders of the Rebellion. This might be one of the better episodes, really. Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon!

Episode CXX - 120 Blaze It

11/9/2018
More
Don't worry, the episode title has nothing to do with the content contained within it. This week, Ben and Ash spend some time discussing some of the animals in the Star Wars galaxy! And we all learn more about banthas than we ever cared to know. Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon!

Episode CXVIII - I Understand Why Lux Bonteri Did What He Did

10/26/2018
More
Lux Bonteri is hardly mentioned on this episode, as you might expect. This week, Ben and Ash are revisiting pilots! Hera wasn't mentioned the first time around (because they're idiots), and now Iden Versio exists! Then the discussion trails off into other pilot-centered shenanery.

Episode CXVII - The Eyes Are the Windu to the Soul

10/19/2018
More
Time to put on your tinfoil hats and talk about how Mace Windu is Snoke! Not really. This week, we're talking about Mace Windu's grandson: Finn! This is a first for us, since we haven't seen the conclusion to his story, so naturally the show drifts into where he might end up in Episode IX! Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon!

Episode CXVI - Feelin' Resistant

10/12/2018
More
Listeners! This episode is our first-ever Patreon live streamed episode! It was a ton of fun, but don't worry, it's still just a normal episode. This week, the show opens with some discussion of The Mandalorian, but Ben and Ash spend most of the time talking Resistance and where it fits into the Star Wars franchise as a whole. How should we approach it critically? Just who is this show aimed at? What do its prospects look like? All of this, and MORE! Do us a favor and check us out on...

Episode CXV - Butt Naked Boba Fett

10/5/2018
More
Listeners, after much too great of an absence, Alexandra is finally gracing us with her presence again! It really has been way too long. But she recently was able to watch Solo for the first time, so we brought her on to talk about it! There's a lot of good discussion now that Ash and Ben have had some time to sit with the movie a little bit longer and Alexandra is able to inject her own viewpoints into the conversation.

Episode CXIV - Ackbar Only Speaks In Fish Quotes

9/28/2018
More
This is primarily an episode about Jyn Erso, but this is the new dog episode, everybody. Ben and Ash are joined by Ash's dog Wedge at various points throughout the first half of the show, but eventually he becomes too much to handle and our intrepid hosts have to postpone recording for the evening. But! They come back better than ever with a strong second half that contains even more of the Jyn Erso discussion that you love. Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon! We give you a little...

Episode CXIII - Maybe the Dewback Ate Your Baby

9/21/2018
More
This week, Ash and Ben go for something a little bit different: a deep dive on a planet! Tatooine is clearly very important to Star Wars, but it's usually talked about as though it's insignificant and worthless. But there's really tons of info on the planet (canon and otherwise) that makes it into so much more than a big ball of sand and rocks. A lot of time is spent talking about Sand People, but of course there is also some speculation as to how the planet might fit into Episode IX! Do us...

Episode CXII - Wedge Antilles: Homewrecker

9/14/2018
More
Rae Sloane is probably the least well-known character that we've done a character episode on, but that doesn't make her any less important! Ash and Ben discuss not only what we know about Sloane (mostly through the Aftermath trilogy), but what might become of her in the future. Do us a favor and check us out on Patreon!
