Pod Stallions 86: The Mandalorian

For the first show of 2021, we decided to discuss the Mandalorian but seeing as it’s New Year’s Eve and we’re us, it sort of devolves into a discussion about Star Wars in general, fandom, the term “fan service” and a whole bunch of other tangents. Join us if you will. Also, we both like […]

A whole roll of vintage Star Wars wallpaper- This was in my bedroom from 1979 until 1989 and a girlfriend giggled at it. Looking at is just pure infused childhood, also my mom was wallpaper obsessed, my house had a “Sid and Marty Krofft” vibe about it, I’m guessing that had a lasting effect on […]
