Podcasters Spotlight: Kaden Stetler from Rebel Chatter

I haven't done a Podcasters Spotlight episode in a while, so here we go!  It's five minutes with Kaden Stetler from the Rebel Chatter podcast.  Kaden talks about the charity work he does with his podcast, what it's like to work with his dad, and reveals the new show he just started working on with an awesome new partner! ;-)

And like all Star Wars podcasters I invite on LT12P, I make Kaden come back for a second episode, and make him sit through my 10 Stoopid Questions.  Ten questions, and only ten seconds to answer each one.  Look for that later in the week!

Acting! (The OT Edition)

As you know, the actors in Star Wars are just that... Actors!  And while we love them in their Star Wars roles, they have also played other great parts in other great films.  In today's episode, I take a look at the main actors from the Original Trilogy, and share my favorite performances of theirs, from other films. -- Check back later in the week when I cover the Prequels, Sequels and Stand-Alone Films.


PS - I apologize for the sound quality on this one.  I had some technical difficulties today.  Too many darn gremlins in the gears, messing things up for me!

PPS - This week, I was invited onto the Nerfherder Council Podcast to chat about Episode VIII.  It was a lot of fun, and I didn't embarrass myself too much!  Please, check it out at... http://nerfherdercouncil.com/shows/the-last-jedi-roundtable-wtf-moments-nhc-january-21-2018/

The Lucasfilm Story Group

Like a lot of hard core Star Wars fans, I have a fascination with the Lucasfilm Story Group.  I also have a lot of questions about the Lucasfilm Story Group.  Today's episode is my top five questions about the Lucasfilm Story Group.  Enjoy!

My Star Was Addiction

Hi, my name is Tim, and I’m an addict.  Today, I take a serious look at my Star Wars addiction.  They said admitting you have a problem is the first step towards recovery, so maybe, hopefully, this episode will be the beginning of my journey.  And no, I’m not joking around here, please have a listen to today’s episode and you’ll learn more about my problem.

LT12P Conversation #0001

As everyone knows, Less Than 12 Parsecs IS the fastest Star Wars podcast in the galaxy!  My goal is to produce episodes that are only 5 minutes in length.

Well, starting today, I'm dipping my toes into some long form content.  Welcome to the first episode of LT12P Conversations!

So, here's the premise...  Every week, or every other week, I will sit down with one star wars fan, and I will ask them one Star Wars questions, and then we will  discuss that one Star Wars topic.  It's going to be a deep dive into the nerdier side of Star Wars minutia.

Oh, and, just to let you know, I do not give my guests the questions in advance of the conversation, I like to make them think on their feet!

Two caveats however...  Because this show IS under the LT12P banner, it is still going to be shorter/quicker/faster then most other Star Wars podcasts out there.  We are shooting for a 20 or 30 minute length, no more.

Also, even though I say one question, one topic, that's not completely true.  I am more then certain our conversations will take us off on tangents and down hyperspace lanes we never expected to explore.  That's all part of the fun of geeking out over Star Wars!

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy this conversation I had with my good friend and yours, Mr. Ryan Dassing?  What question did I ask him?  Well, you'll have to listen to find out!

Star Wars Sub-Communities

 Today I was thinking about all the different types of Star Wars fans, and Star Wars fandoms.  So I started to create a list of five wacky and weird, (and purely imagine by me), groups of Star Wars fans. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought that these groups of Star Wars fans and fandoms could either be A; already a reality, or B; be something that some people might be into for real, but who just haven’t come together as a Star Wars sub-community yet.    So, while this list may seem like a joke on the surface, I think it might not be for some.

Two of the things I want to mention. First off I did not script this episode, I just recorded it on the spot, all extemporaneous like, and it shows.  And that’s why this episode is a little long. (My original edit was 15 mins long,)  Sorry about that.  Secondly, I don’t know if “sub-communities “ is really the proper word to use here, but I’m not a sociologist, so I’m going with it,  thanks.

Much Appreciated!

Today’s episode is one of those episodes I hate doing, because it’s not really about Star Wars, but rather it’s about the podcast itself.  That said, I have a really good reason for talking about LT12P today. Really!  Please take five or six minutes to find out why!

Weekly News Roundup for January 5th, 2018

Hey, I'm bringing back a classic... It's the Less Than 12 Parsecs Weekly News Roundup!  Can you believe I haven't don't one of these since June 9th!  That's crazy!

For those of you who don't remember the Weekly News Roundup, what I do is once a week, I recap and review all the Star Wars headlines that grabbed my attention in the previous seven days, and I share a quick thought or opinion about each story.  This is Less Than 12 Parsecs, we don't have time for indepth analysis, and LT12P shouldn't be your source for Star Wars news.  That said, it's fun to recap the weeks big headlines!

The Weekly News Roundup is always unscripted, so please bear with me as I babble.  Normally I try to keep these episodes between 3 and 7 minutes, but I am a little out of practice and went on for 9 minutes.  Sorry!  But thanks for listening anyway, and please enjoy!
