Christmas and Hanukkah may be over, but in the spirit of the holidays, we’re releasing Episode 003 of the podcast soon after our last one went up. In this episode Devin and I discuss Star Wars: The Last Jedi with special guests Rachel Parker and Joey Ammons. We are all huge Star Wars fans and had a lot to say about the film, recording over 2 hours of audio (some of which will be edited out), so this will be another 2-parter, but the good news is that the 2nd part will be up very shortly.
Rachel Parker is a co-founder of GeekGirlBrunch (@geekgirlbrunch) an international meet-up group for geeky women. She is a member of the NYC-based ASOIAF fan group @FireandLunch and you can hear her talk about Thrones on the @FireandLunch #Piecast. Her current passion-project is Read This F*cking Book (@rtfbpodcast) – trading genre book recs with co-host and guests in the never-ending quest for her next favorite book. You can find her mostly talking about Star Wars @DarthRachel.
Joey Ammons is a concept artist at Macy’s Parade Studio. His Instagram is @powerkid.exe.
DRINK OF CHOICE
Light (side) and Dark (side) beers:
Light — Other Half Space Diamonds IPA
Dark — We’ve Been Out There in Orbit Imperial Stout (Bourbon Barrel Aged w/ Coffee & Coconut)
Hi, everyone. This is Rajan here, one of the hosts of the podcast. I just wanted to apologize for the delay between episodes 1 and 2 of the podcast. Around the time of the recording of the first episode, I was laid off from my day job, and then a little bit later started a new job and immediately had to travel for work so it threw a wrench in my plans.
The good news is that things are now settling down and the next episode is about to go up and the one after that will arrive soon after. Starting with episode 5 we should settle back into a stable twice a month schedule.
Devin and I are also working on lining up some really great guests for 2018 so stay tuned to this space or our twitter (@spiriteddis) for more information.
Episode 002, part two of our talk with Grady Hendrix, is now up and available on iTunes, Soundcloud, and right here on our website.
In part 002 of our talk with Grady, we touch on Asian film, the lack of American epics, Civil War and Vietnam films, and the lack of American myths. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Drink of choice: Rum and Tonic (chosen by Grady)
In our first episode, we talk to Grady Hendrix, author of Horrorstör, My Best Friend’s Exorcism, and Paperbacks from Hell about horror, Stephen King, Stranger Things, and more.
