#27 - Calm Before the Storm

Season 1, Ep. 27

Welcome back to the only Star Wars podcast that's built on hope! The news lull before Episode IX is about to end and Patrick is settled in his new home "on the Forest Moon of Ontario," so we took a moment to catch up on the summer's events.

What Star Wars books have we been reading, and does Aftermath set up how Palpatine could return? Could the Russo Brothers bring their Endgame success to Lucasfilm? How do we feel about the upcoming Benioff & Weiss project(s) after Game of Thrones' final season? All of this and more!

And don't miss the final section, where we discuss some exciting news for our own show. We're back and expanding in more ways than one!

#26 - Live at Star Wars Day 2019

Season 1, Ep. 26

Welcome back to the Quarter Portion Podcast, the only Star Wars podcast that records live under the heat of twin suns!

It's becoming a summer tradition here in London, Ontario: the galaxy far, far away descends upon Storybook Gardens for a day in July to raise money for the local Children's Health Foundation. Chris was on-hand this year and spoke to a handful of the volunteers: Jay Bartlett, Lacey, JP, Mariann (Hypergate Cosplay), and Geoff (MessiahComplex Cosplay).

It was a scorcher of a day but these brave souls suited up to entertain guests, and stopped by to chat Star Wars, as well as how and why they do what they do. To learn more about the programs benefitted by the day's proceeds, please visit the Children's Health Foundation.


Guests:

Jay Bartlett (organizer) - catch "Galaxy Far, Far Away: The Show" returning to the Nerdy Northerners Twitch feed Monday, September 3!

Lacey (Sabine) - LaceyJay Cosplay

Mariann (Twilek) - Hypergate Cosplay

Geoff (Obi Wan) - MessiahComplex Cosplay

Episode IX Teaser Reactions

Celebration is in full swing and the hype has awoken, as we now have our first look at Episode IX!

The teaser manages to whet our appetites and provide a lot of tantalizing moments, while also not giving too much away. Chris and Pat dissect it scene by scene and try to speculate (responsibly) on what could be going on - from Rey's new outfit and that TIE Silencer jump to guerilla warfare on a desert planet to... that menacing laughter.

And of course, the title! What do you think this enigmatic title could mean?

23 - In Defence of Anakin

Season 3, Ep. 23

Welcome back to the only Star Wars podcast that sees through the lies of the Jedi! We're joined by Amy and Derek of Guild Two-Taps to reevaluate some long-held Prequel opinions!

Anakin Skywalker is the crux of the Star Wars saga but also one of the most hotly debated components of the Prequel Trilogy. Many long-time fans found his journey didn't meet their lofty expectations. But what about those who first experienced the franchise from young Anakin's perspective?

Along the way we discuss the inevitability of Anakin's fate, the impact Qui Gon could have had on him if he'd lived, Obi Wan's mentoring qualifications, the legacy Anakin leaves for his grandson, and much more!

What do you think about the tragedy of Anakin - his story or its portrayal?

22 - Pageturners, Sequel Edition

Season 3, Ep. 22

Welcome back to the Quarter Portion Podcast, the only Star Wars podcast that has at least attempted to read the sacred Jedi texts! While Pat's searching for real estate on the Forest Moon of Endor, Chris is here to answer one of the questions we get asked the most: "where do I start with Star Wars books?" As our favourite book of the current Canon is "Bloodline" by Claudia Gray, Chris explores the books currently set in the thirty years between Episodes VI and VII, and how they enhance the overall narrative (without spoiling anything, so you can still enjoy them for yourself!). The Marvel comics and Star Wars: Resistance also come up - the Sequel era may seem sparse on details, but there's a lot of great stories across all forms of Star Wars media!

Let us know - have you read many of these books? What's your favourite from this time period?
