Episode 2: The Empire Needs BiPAP

SUBJECTIVEIn episode 2, we talk about everyone's favorite mobile ICU from a galaxy far, far away. How does Darth Vader fit all of his medical equipment in his suit? How many backpacks or backpack droids does he have? Also, we talk a lot about poop. Everybody poops. Even Darth Vader.OBJECTIVEResources, Citations, and Mentions:The Last of the Iron Lungs by Jennings Brown, Gizmodo, Nov 2017Darth Vader's armor, WookieepediaDarth Vader armor schematic, (I think it's originally from Star Wars Blueprints: The Ultimate Collection by Ryder Windham and illustrated by by Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff, published Aug 2008 — we found it on tumblr)Turning human waste into next generation biofuel from ScienceDaily, May 2016We were both right about human waste in space: Here Are Some Weird Facts About Pooping in Space by Amy Shira Teitel, Popular Science, Sep 2015; The Scoop on Space Poop: How Astronauts Go Potty by Megan Gannon, Space.com, Aug 2013Padme's death scene from Filmic Box (YouTube)Did Inadequate Women’s Healthcare Destroy Star Wars’ Old Republic? by Sarah Jeong, Vice Motherboard, Jan 2017ASSESSMENTThis was the very first episode we recorded! Which is why we called it our first episode at the end. Even though it's the second one...There was no rating at the end because this was before we started doing that.PLANSpecial thanks to Butterscotch Shenanigans for letting us use their podcast equipment!
