The Biff Bam Pop! Podcast Network presents Gobbledygeek featuring hosts Paul Smith and AJ Wiley and focusing on a variety of entertainment subjects, with our hosts and special guests frequently discussing films, comics, and television.
This week, the Gobbledygeek crew are joined by Kenn Edwards and Andrew Allen to discuss Star Wars, each trilogy and how it involved and featured George Lucas – a discussion exploring the artist and his art, what’s canon and what’s not, and how it affects its audience and creators. See and hear more after the jump.
Episode 258 of Gobbledygeek is described here: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a filmmaker named George Lucas accidentally created a pop culture empire. Over the years, the Star Wars saga has gotten away from the man who conceived them, both figuratively and literally; the prequel trilogy is a classic example of an artist’s reach exceeding their grasp, and Disney is now making a new series without his involvement. Kenn Edwards of So Let’s Get to the Point and Star Wars zealot Andrew Allen join Paul and AJ for a wide-ranging discussion of Lucas’ saga, what it means to them, and what it’s really about, plus an artistic (and political) re-evaluation of Lucas himself.” All this and more can be found right here.
