About This Show
The Geek to Geek Podcast is co-hosted by Beej (@professorbeej) and Void (@grnmushroom), two life-long geeks who have managed to bring their geekery with them into adulthood and still be somewhat functional adults. They love games of all kinds, books, movies, TV, and pretty much everything else, and they want to talk about it all. With you.

S2E11 - Introducing your friends to Star Wars - “Jedi Noob”

Introducing your friends to Star Wars In this episode: Getting into Star Wars can be tough. It has a huge history and a gigantic fanbase, and with 50 years behind it, some people are intimidated by the franchise and don’t know how to jump in. Never fear, geeks! We’re here to help. Inspired by our resident Jedi Noobs Chocobochica and CapsuleJay (among others!), we want to make sure that Star Wars is not unapproachable. We provide suggestions on the best viewing order on the movies, as well as jumping-on points that aren’t necessarily even tied in with the films. There is a huge swath of Star Wars-related media out there, so if you’re a book person, we recommend books (specifically, audiobooks!), or if you’re a gamer, there are always video games, and if you like to binge, you can even jump in with some of the cartoons and even different ways to watch those! We discuss the oft-mentioned Machete order, as well as how The Force Awakens (Episode 7) changed the way you jump in and get accustomed to the galaxy far, far away. Even spinoffs like the recent Rogue One and the upcoming Han Solo films present unique ways to dip your toes in without needing 50 years worth of history to make sense of it all. Geeky Offer of the Week Head over to audibletrial.com/geektogeekcast and grab either LOST STARS or A NEW DAWN.
