2014 12 18 303 Star Wars/Star Trek Holiday Special
A not so long long time ago in a country not so far far away...
It is a time of yule tide cheer. Five expats
have come together under the shared love for
all things nerdy to bring you a podcast
episode that discusses the final frontier and
the galaxy far far away.
***Special Guest Nerd - Dr. Michael Hurt***
-The Prequels Strike Back -
We discuss what was good about the prequels, even though the consensus is that these are generally terrible. We also try to find things we hated about the original trilogy.
-Where No Jedi has Gone Before-
We pair each Star Wars character with his TNG counterpart and discuss which of the two we'd rather be.
-The Wrath of Rob-
Dr. Michael Hurt discusses why it is that Koreans don't seem to like Star Trek.
Major props to non-nerd Olivia Lim for surviving through this one.
