John and Jude reform to discuss the Episode IX trailer and the film’s finally revealed trailer. We also have some catching up to do, including John’s exchange with Richard E Grant at a recent recording of Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast (this episode will be available on YouTube later this year), the fact that we are both working together again and therefore able to record more shows. We also return to the subject of the “Wish” sponsored advertisements we keep seeing on our Instagram feeds, and the bizarre products we are being targeted with (see Blah Wars #56 for more on this).
This episode was recorded in an Oxfordshire pub, early on a Saturday using handheld recorders. We didn’t know at the time but there was a great deal of digital audio interference from our mobile phones throughout the show. In addition to this, you’ll also hear clinks, chinks, glass being smashed, and the ever increasing sound of a pub as it fills with hungry people.
Never the less, we hope you enjoy it. In addition to this, a further 18 minutes of conversation was recorded and uploaded to our Patreon

This episode marks the return of Blah Wars in its regular weekly format and Jude is back too. John and Jude examine the recently leaked production photos from Episode IX (contains very minor spoilers / casting reveals). We also debut John's "Bring Blah Wars to Africa" song. Subjects also up for discussion this week include the work of Tommy Wiseau's The Room, potential titles for Episode IX plus cryptic tweets from Anthony Daniels and what they might mean.

It's the TV premiere of The Force Awakens. John presents a live watch-along video broadcast on YouTube, with a healthy audience of regular listeners chatting away and everything. The video has been taken down on copyright grounds, sadly, however, here is the audio of the whole thing, more or less. Advert breaks have been edited out and the overall sound quality is not great. One for the completists? The video will be available to our Patreon subscribers at some point soon.
