Episode 6: Star Wars and Nostalgia
In this special triple threat crossover of the Cannonball, Serious Fun, and Voyageur podcasts, your host, Eric Morgan, talks Star Wars and nostalgia with co-hosts Bryan Carr, Ryan Martin, and Chuck Rybak.

The impressive collection of action figures, ships, and playsets is the lifetime work of Jarrod Roll, a Star Wars enthusiast and museum curator from Onalaska, Wisconsin. Roll currently serves as the director of the Monroe County Local History Room and Museum in Sparta. You can learn more about Jarrod's exhibit by visiting: https://www.starwarsexhibit.org/.
