This week on Beltway Banthas, Robby Soave of Reason Magazine
joins the show to talk the politics of Episode I: The Phantom
Menace. We cover trade disputes, slavery on Tatooine, the aloof
Jedi Order and Vladimir Putin.
Robby and Stephen get into the weeds of Star Wars Episode I and
also share thoughts on the Gillette controversy, the Women's March
and what is like to write a book.
Beltway Banthas is a podcast about the intersection of Star Wars and politics. For host Stephen Kent, one of those things is politics. Star Wars draws from our world's politics just as much as it contributes to it by influencing policymakers, journalists and thought leaders. On this podcast, we seek to understand how Star Wars impacts the world we live in, while also covering the Star Wars news, gossip and hype of the day.
