Episode 146: Which Characteristics of the Empire/First Order Are Compelling or Good?

On this week's episode, Barb, Carl, Devin, Eve and Gina sit down and discuss which characteristics or parts the Empire and the First Order are compelling to us, or perhaps, even good in some ways. What facets of the organizations are interesting or seemingly work, and does admiring those traits taint our view of the Rebellion/Rebels at all? From real world to science fiction and back again, this week's episode is a must-listen!
