Good episode? Give it some love!

Star Wars and Halloween got together like chicken and parmigiana, so why does this Star Wars Halloween episode spiral out of control?!


Well, we tried to do an episode about Star Wars and Halloween, but it turns out one of the Brews and Blasters hosts doesn't really love Halloween so we start spiraling...and end up in a great conversation about Gary Kurtz, the long-lost Making of The Empire Strikes Back documentary by Michel Parbot, and a lot more. Toss in some stellar email, a killer Oppo Award and an interstellar NeedEm GotEm, and you got a stew baby! And a podcast episode. Whatever. Let's go, Warheads! The Star Wars Party starts NOW! It's time for Brews and Blasters.
