A weekly Geek Culture podcast. 

Nov 22, 2017

For this year's Thanksgiving Dessert, The Geek Speak Show gets you ready for The Last Jedi!

First, we go back to the day when this new Star Wars journey began: Hear Henry, Jedi Knight Rac, Joel Japitana, and Jae Gibbs react to the announcement that Disney had acquired Lucasfilm and that we were getting Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. How close were we with our predictions for directors and what the films should be about?

Next, we move forward to 2015. On the eve before The Force Awakens was unleashed to the world, Henry's friend and former radio colleague Ken Ray came on to talk about Star Trek and Star Wars. Ken Ray is also one of the hosts of the Mission Log podcast, produced by our friends at Roddenberry Entertainment. Ken & Henry share their excitement for TFA as fans who were there in 1977 when it all started.

Finally, Henry & Jedi Knight Rac share their reactions to The Force Awakens a week after it was released. The episode wraps up with Henry and former Geek Speak host Angel Nevarez sharing their opening night experience when they went to see The Force Awakens.

After this episode (and with weeks before its release), you should be more than ready for The Last Jedi!
