UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 44 "The Bad Batch Ep. 16: Kamino Lost"
We made it. The season finale of "The Bad Batch" has been seen...and we have a lot of thoughts and feelings on this new Star Wars show with which we have been gifted. It made quite an impression on us as well as our special guest star this week, our husband/dad, Jeff. So join us for a final season 1 discussion on the compelling characters, the emotional story, the metaphor, the symbolism, etc of what we feel is some great Star Wars.

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 43 "The Bad Batch Ep 15: Return to Kamino"
(TW/ Holocaust) Oooookayyyy here we are at the two-part season finale of "The Bad Batch". How are we feeling? Emotionally compromised? Because you are NOT alone. Join us in this deeeeep dive on "Return to Kamino" and find out how we responded to this epic episode, and what we think the deeper metaphor for this entire season could be.

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 42 "The Bad Batch Eps 13 & 14"
Join us once again for a double dose of "THE BAD BATCH" as we discuss Episode 13 "Infested" and Episode 14 "War-Mantle". As season one nears its end, we got both a stand-alone type story with a metaFORCEical theme and a STRESSFUL larger story arc episode. Things are getting really real for the Kaminoans, Clone Force 99 and Omega as we seem to be barreling towards an emotionally gripping season 1 finale. TW/ Holocaust

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 41 "The Bad Batch" Eps 11/12 The Ryloth Arc
We are back to discuss "The Bad Batch", and its first multiple episode story arc! In this mashup of "The Clone Wars", "Rebels" and "The Bad Batch", we look into the backstory of some old friends, once again wonder about the efficacy of the clones' inhibitor chips, and have a good feeling about Omega meeting a new bff. And we'd be remiss if we didn't discuss new Star Wars heartthrob...HOT HOWZER.

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 40 "The Bad Batch: Ep 10 Common Ground"
We have arrived at Episode 40! Thank you all for listening! This week in Current Events we discuss the "Star Wars: Visions" anime project and the details that were unveiled at the Anime Expo Lite panel including release date, studios included, and titles & details of each short. I mean, A DROID IN A HAT, YA'LL! We of course also discuss Episode 10 of "The Bad Batch: Common Ground". We delve into how this episode recalled The Clone Wars, focused on a more political theme yet also gave us additional insight into Omega's skill set & her relationship with her Tough Love Mom, Cid, and we see how hard I will go to defend new droid GS-8. Lastly, please be warned that I rant about a topic that made me a little grumpy this week.😬

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 39 "The Bad Batch Ep. 9 Bounty Lost"
We're are back to discuss Episode 9 of THE BAD BATCH! This episode finds our young heroine in the clutches of Cad Bane & his pesky droid, Todo, but as the title flat out tells us lol, that doesn't last too long. But there are definitely a couple of record scratch moments that left us with more questions than answers. Plus the return of not 1 but 2 of Omega's "Moms"! So come on in, and hear us out on what we think it all could possibly mean.

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 38 "The Bad Batch Ep.8 Reunion"
We have hit the halfway mark of season 1 of THE BAD BATCH, and it took no prisoners (har har). Crosshair is back on our screens, and he is on an Imperial mission to, ummmm, "take care" of his former squad. Tensions run HIGH this episode, PLUS we have a big deal guest star that made Collin fist pump. (Oh yeah, and he also yells about Rhen Var AGAIN.)
50 minutes | Jun 17, 2021
UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 37 "The Bad Batch - Ep 7 "Battle Scars"
This week URP examines "THE BAD BATCH" Episode 7 entitled "Battle Scars". We have arrived at the midway point of season one, and it sure got tense as Wrecker's inhibitor chip finally becomes a very big problem for him and his friends. We also get a very exciting guest star in this episode, and we discuss a metaphorical moment which of course makes us happy. Plus, we perhaps uncover a subtle theme that evokes possible spirituality. Join us and let us know what you think!

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 36 "The Bad Batch" - Eps 4, 5 & 6
Apologies that Collin has been lost in the Unknown Regions of final school projects for a few weeks, but we are back for a Death Star sized episode! We delve into episodes 4, 5 and 6 of "THE BAD BATCH", discuss how we think this show is hitting on almost all cylinders, explore the feminism of a show we had assumed would be all tough dude clones all the time, and attempt to keep to a time schedule...and fail.😂

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 35 The Bad Batch - Ep 3 Replacements
Welp, "The Bad Batch" is really pulling no punches in Episode 3: Replacements, and we are basically loving it. We had a lot to say about Crosshair, his character arc, speculative redemption. We also discuss more on Omega, her new creature friend, her possible mysterious purpose, what we think her actions in this episode could mean to the larger story. And as always, Wrecker...please marry me.🙏

Continuing our Star Wars/LOST comparison series, we're focusing on another major theme of both stories....REDEMPTION.

As a returning special guest and LOST connoisseur, we are joined by my other offspring, DELANEY, who was eager to explore this theme! Who do we think are the major redemption arcs of both stories? How do the characters' redemption arcs mirror each other? How are they different? Which does it better, in our opinions? This was one of our favorite discussions, so we hope you enjoy!

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 32 "LOST" in a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Part One - The Binary
WE ARE BACK and on an island far, far away! Apologies for the unplanned hiatus, but we are now here to make good on our threats of a series of episodes comparing Star Wars and LOST, the television series. We have long held that LOST and Star Wars are cut from the same cloth, so in Part 1 of this series we begin with a huge theme of both stories...THE BINARY, the Light and Dark, and the struggle to find the balance between them. WARNING! THERE WILL BE SPOILERS GALORE IN THIS SERIES, so we advise that you watch LOST before you join us for this comparison series. Otherwise...now boarding Flight 815 to the Unknown Regions!

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 29 The Mandalorian/The Believer
URP's Clan of 2 here to dig into the penultimate episode of season 2, "The Mandalorian Chapter 15: The Believer"! Opinions on this episode are a little all over the place but that usually makes for the best discussions. Who IS the believer and what is it they are believing? Why do we need Mayfeld back (because honestly I really didn't think I did lol), and how amazing are his monologues? (Answer: VERY) What part of the episode made me grrrrr. What moment of PURE fan service made us cheer at 3:00 am? What does a Salvador Dali painting have to do with the Chop Fields? Will I ever stop seeing Greek letters symbolism in this show? What do we think will go down in the finale? Jump into our Juggernaut (but don't drive too fast) & find out!

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 28 Disney Investor Day Madness Surprise Episode!
SURPRISE BONUS EPISODE! Like a virtual version of a super-sized Hall H Saturday panel (minus the horrible con pizza and hot dogs), Disney pummeled us today with an Investor Day extravaganza.

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 27 The Mandalorian/The Tragedy
URP's Clan of 2 is here to deep dive on the extremely high highs and the extremely low lows of "The Mandalorian Chapter 14: The Tragedy". How did we survive the whiplash? What do we make of the Star Wars: Roll Out cameo? How high were we on the action and character development of our much beloved og Mando? How happy were we to see another great character's return? Tython. The rocks. The ships. The weird Force stuff. The murder of my favorite lady. Join us and again if you can, join us in donating to TransgenderLawCenter.org!

UNKNOWN REGIONS PODCAST: Episode 25 The Mandalorian/The Siege
URP's Clan of 2 are here to break down "The Mandalorian Episode 12: The Siege". With a couple of the most comedic home runs in all of Star Wars and a healthy dose of action, this episode seemed a little simple at first blush. However, we wouldn't be us if we didn't dig down into what might be deeper meanings just beyond the comedy and action. Why are red and blue the sponsor colors of this episode? Just what craziness is going on at that alleged Imperial base on Nevarro? How much more precious can The Child get? How big is my tinfoil tiara this week? (Answer: It's huge.)
