Episode 154: Should Star Wars Creatives Have a Different Standard for Self-Expression?

On this weeks episode, Barb, Carl, Devin and Eve sat down to discuss all about the recent news and announcements; from Kathleen Kennedy signing on for another 3 years (psst: we’re all in for KK!), Episode IX rumors (strong emphasis on the word rumors here!) and lastly, the new set photos to Jon Favreau’s live-action series ‘The Mandalorian’ – the gang covers it all. We round it out with a closer look into whether or not Star Wars creatives should be held to a higher standard for self-expression on social media, etc.
