Beltway Banthas: Star Wars, Politics & More

Nov 30, 2020

Hello Banthas! I hope you had a great holiday weekend. The episode for this month tackles the political intrigue of The Mandalorian, whose recent episode offered some new insights on the troubles of governing a galaxy. There's a lot to chew on and it's important, not just for understanding Star Wars lore but for grappling with our own world's political disorder. 

We start off with a talk on government in a galaxy far, far away. After that, Brian Silliman (SYFY WIRE + Jabba The Pod) joins the show to talk about his recent interview of Anthony Daniels (C3P0) and why tackling politics in entertainment is a worthwhile endeavor, which Star Wars cares deeply about.
