Blah Wars #67: Galaxy of Adventures

December 9, 2018

John is getting ready for his first ever meat-free Christmas. Jude is having a nightmare with his mobile phone coverage or lack off. On the show this week we discuss Galaxy of Adventures, Disney's latest 'high octane blast' of animated shorts 'for the entire family' and the dangers of introducing your children to Star Wars from a very young age. John lays into Total Film magazine for touting clickbait. Kevin Smith has been and seen the set for Episode 9, but has he stopped talking about how much weight he's lost? Star Wars collectors were treated this week to a Parka coat from Columbia Sportswear, a replica of those worn by the Empire Strikes Back crew when they were shooting in Norway. A $500 a go, whose wearing that? Plus there's news from Star Wars Galaxy's Edge. Jude opens up about childhood fears, mostly about the Elephant Man and The Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Next week, its the Blah Wars Christmas Special. We want to hear your Christmas memories, so get in touch with us via blahwarspodcast@gmail.com

Blah Wars #66: Kenobi is not happening

December 2, 2018

Jude has a really bad cold, so we're recording this week's episode from our separate homes. We start off with our reactions to Blah Wars LIVE! and John's been experiencing Star Wars in strange new ways thanks to the magic of Surround Sound. You've probably heard rumours of George Lucas directing a Kenobi stand alone movie? We explain why these are doing the rounds once again and why they shouldn't be believed. We also discuss the feasibility of visiting America, share some merchandise ideas we've been asked about, even have a little rant about negative feedback. While talking about Galaxy of Adventures, the new series of animated Star Wars shorts, Jude talks about the problems with getting his son to watch Star Wars cartoons and why children in general are becoming harder to please. 

In other news the November episode of Blah Wars: Monthly Payload is available now to VIP subscribers from patreon.com/blahwars

Blah Wars #64: Blah Wars LIVE!

November 18, 2018

Our first chaotic live episode, recorded at 2Northdown, London. John and Jude have just come from seeing A New Hope at the Royal Albert Hall the night before and you’ll hear about the people sat around us, Jude’s disappointment at the musical gaps in the movie and our pathetic attempts at self-promotion. John is convinced Mark Hamill has been cast in The Walking Dead, and he’s got evidence to prove it. You heard it here first! With very little Star Wars news to cover Jude shares his pants in the face story and you’ll also hear about the worst thing John has ever done. We’ve got lots of prizes to give away, so Jude was joined on stage by audience member and legendary cosplayer Leigh Hawker for a round of Who Wants To Win A Million Credits. In the second half of the show, were joined by Bradie and Raj for a look at Raj’s Star Wars amateur dramatics and we provide a commentary over the highlights from the Star Wars Holiday Special. Thank you to everyone who travelled so far to join us at this live show, we had the most incredible time and it was a pleasure to meet so many of you after the show. We recorded the audio from two sources, one straight from the sound desk and one capturing the ambience of the room. Massive thanks to Sam and everyone at 2Northdown for their amazing support and production assistance.
