Josh and Chuck of Stuff You Should Know are two of my favorite podcasters, and they tackled the legendary and baffling (and must-see) Star Wars Holiday Special this week. It's one of two podcasts you should probably check out today.
I just heard about Star Wars Minute, a podcast in which they look at Star Wars minute-by-minute. So each installment focuses on 60 seconds of film, and lasts for several minutes. Interesting trivia is shared, the hosts made mention of Harry Shearer having dubbed a couple of voices in the movie. Anyway, check it out!
The always funny John Hodgman (The Daily Show, various Apple ads, Areas of My Expertise) has had a wonderful podcast which satirizes the TV courtroom show format. This week on Judge John Hodgman: should a family going to Star Wars Celebration VI compel the mother to wear a costume since the husband and son are going to Jedi it up a bit?
If you like a good podcast, you should check out The Sound of Young America if you aren't already a subscriber. Jesse Thorn interviews Carrie Fisher in the latest episode, and while there's not a ton of Star Wars in there, you'll hear about how she thought it might be some tiny movie that nobody saw and ended up some sort of "hip thing."
If you're a fan of comedy and/or podcasts, you're no doubt a fan of the Pod F. Tompkast which is put out by America's friend/Mr. Show alum/DAG actor/all-around great standup Paul F. Tompkins. He's just done a fantastic Star Wars sketch.
