This week we discussed Star Wars, including the fact that we host a geek podcast and half the hosts haven’t seen it since they were kids. The new Serial Sidelines – the random hobbies podcast, cause we lost our geek cred. Something like that. Plus, we have another CoC: The Wasted Land code to give away!

The main event starts 42 minutes in for those who want to go straight to the guts, although you should at least listen to the intro music, it was worth it.

Let us know what you think in the Forums!
