Star Wars: Ep. IX - The Rise of Skywalker (w/ Matt Gourley)

It's the final film of the Star Wars saga! Matt Gourley (Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend, Superego) joins us to answer our questions about the highly divisive Rise of Skywalker film. Who did Palpatine sleep with? Why is it dangerous for a droid to speak Sith? Will this really be the last film? Plus, Matt also explains all the cool puppeteering used in the film, the hot multiple romances going on, and so much more!

Check out Matt Gourley new podcast - Bonanas for Bonanza with Andy Daly and Maria Banford.

And finally, May the 4th be with you! Next week is Star Wars week and we want to celebrate everything around the franchise. Let us know what you'd like us to cover in your review for the show.
