Episode 6 – How Droids Work

Droids

A droid being drawn and quartered, no big deal

To wipe or not to wipe? No this episode isn’t about personal hygiene in the galaxy, it’s about droids. To be honest, the role of droids in the galaxy makes the boys a tad uncomfortable. Were they mere tools meant only to benefit the master, or were they true, albeit inorganic beings sentenced to a life of toil and eventual dismemberment? Maybe by the end of this episode, you’ll be ready to rid the universe of “meatbags.”

Bonus points for those who recognize the theme from our end credits.

Episode 5 – The Huttcast

Jabba the Hutt

This is love.

The Hutts: those obese, rascal-riding slugs that gross out the galaxy. It’s a good idea to avoid the Hutts if possible. They have their own chunk of the galaxy carved out for themselves for a reason. The boys offer up their advice for how to deal with a Hutt should you go up against one, but discover just how dangerous it is to do so.

Our sincerest apologies go out to our listeners from Las Vegas, Ohio, Detroit, any fans of Ty Pennington and people still living with their parents.

…ok just America in general. Sorry America.

Episode 4 – How To Go Fast In The Galaxy

Hyperspace

But seriously how do you put out engine fires?

Space: The infinite frontier. Or something. But still, space…it’s really big! How do all those people zip all around the galaxy so easily? How do down-trodden aliens (and only one human apparently) rip through crazy, chaotic and dangerous podracing courses? How does one not only go fast…but Hyperspace-fast? On this episode of Loose Canon the boys talk about how the mechanics of such things in the Star Wars universe work, and how those concepts relate to some familiar scenes from the movies. Don’t worry, they’ll take it slow with you.

Episode 3 – Why Aren’t Droids Allowed In The Cantina?

Cantina

Arguably Hasbro’s best offering

Why aren’t droids allowed in the cantina? This is a burning question for you isn’t it? It’s probably the biggest enigma from Episode IV. What’s the big beef with droids at the galaxy-famous Mos Eisley Cantina? Is it prejudice? Is Wuher just a big bully? Or is it something more?

Also the boys contemplate the musical stylings of the house band at length…

Episode 2 – How Wookiees Work

Wookiees

That sexy, wind-blown look

Savage beast? Lovable fuzzball? Or the most vital agent for good in the galaxy? The trio uncovers just who Chewbacca is and what makes him tick. The guys also introduce the syllabus for their upcoming Wookiee culture comparative studies course beginning this fall. Register soon, spots are moving fast.

Bonus segment: it’s a small galaxy after all.
