#320 – Hope Springs Eternal
Dec 24 16
A week has passed since the first Star Wars spinoff film, Rogue One, hit theatres, and much to the surprise of no one in this galaxy it was a massive hit, going on to break box office records and finishing second only behind The Force Awakens in terms of December releases. It seems that despite whatever hoopla went down during the oft talked about reshoots that happened mere months before its release, the filmmakers were able to pull it all together and release a film worthy of the Star Wars name (well, not counting the prequels, obviously).
I’m your (still former) host, David Snider, and joining me again are fellow nerds and Rebel sympathizers Jonathan Hinckley (current leader of our splinter group), Chad Griner (former Imperial assassin droid, reprogrammed for podcasting purposes), Cody Eastlick (Guardian of the Whills and part-time Dungeon Master) and Ryan Caldwell (often found choking on his aspirations).
Topics of discussion in this episode include our favorite Rogue One characters and moments; we talk about the film’s CG surprises and their creepy implications; and finally, Cody runs afoul of his evil doppelganger in this week’s installment of Movie People Horror Stories.

My #1 weekly staple
These guys keep me company at work. I've been listening for 3 years and we live a state apart but they would no doubt have refrigerator privileges at my house. David, Cody, Chad, and Ryan I don't always agree but I always love to hear your opinions on movies. My husband is a movie buff and this gives us some common ground. 10 years of marriage leaves you sparse on discussion topics. Thanks for the entertainment and interaction. I've enjoyed it so much I thought I'd take a moment to let everyone know. :-)

Clerks - Verified
These guys are certainly clerks with a capital "C" and they're just polished enough to let you enjoy that fact, without being annoyed by it. Great geek-out fan show for all things movies, TV and the kinds of interests we had because we weren't dating... And I mean that as a compliment.
