In this special comic cross over, we learn more about Dr. Aphra, Luke's flirtation with the force, and Han and Leia's ever expanding relationship.

The boys are back to talk about one of the first books to be created in Star Wars canon AND one of the few first person books written in the Star Wars universe, Heir to the Jedi. Will they enjoy the different take on Luke Skywalker or will they obsess over Jogan Fruit once again. I think we all know the answer to that...


SWNCBC: Episode 20 - Rogue One

Rogue One is finally here! Not only did we manage to watch it more than once, but watched it again right before recording. It was after midnight, but we needed to talk The Wars, so we decided to record at Alex's house into the wee hours of the morning. We have so many thoughts and opinions on this film and more importantly some interesting new feelings about Catalyst.


SWNCBC: Episode 19 - Rogue One Catalyst

Rogue One is just a a day or so away, so it's the perfect time to discuss the book that takes place just before it: Catalyst. What were Jyn's parents like?

All this and our thoughts on what this will add to the movie, if anything, in a new Star Wars Book Club!

SWNCBC: Episode 13 - Movie Updates

This episode we take a look at some of the recently released news about Rogue One and Episode 8. There may be some spoilers in here, but since no one really knows anything, consider them just very good predictions.


SWNCBC: Episode 8 - Clone Wars Season 1

After slogging their way through the good and the bad, season one of the Clone Wars (and that god awful movie) have been watched. The boys have opinions and actually found much more to love watching the series again from the start. Except for that time Jar Jar was a Jedi....


SWNCBC - Episode 5: Lost Stars

This episode the boys sit down to discuss the young adult novel Lost Stars. Clearly not the intended audience, all three have differing opinions on the book. Besides the love, romance, and doin it, what other nuggets can we find deep with in this story of Imperial cadets turned lovers?
