Weird Star Wars

This episode started out as my "Gut Reaction" on the latest episodes of Star Wars Rebels, but it turned into my treatise on what Pablo Hidalgo has called "weird Star Wars".  Have a listen and let me know what you think.  Thanks!

The Last Jedi Commentary Track

My old pal from The Expanded Fandomverse Podcast, Jason Collier and I got together and recorded a commentary track for The Last Jedi.  With The Last Jedi in the last days of it's theatrical run, why not go to see it on the big screen one more time, and this time, bring us along in your ear buds!  Nothing is more fun then having a couple of nerds yammering in your ear as you re-watch the latest episode in everyone's favorite space opera!

And if The Last Jedi is no longer playing in your area, no worries, it will soon be available for digital download and on disk in just a could of weeks!

If you listen to this and wonder what we thought about The Force Awakens and Rogue One, don't worry, we've got you covered.  You can find those commentary tracks here...

LT12P Conversations #0004

During the first episode of LT12P Conversations, I know I said I would be doing these once a week, maybe once every other week, but I'm sorry, I can't help myself!  These have ben fun to do.  I get why people have podcasts that are longer than 5 minutes now, it's simply fun!

Anyway, here is the fourth episode in the LT12P Conversations series.  Today I sit down and chat with y old pal, Allen Voivod from Star Wars 7x7, The Only Daily Star Wars Podcast!  We chat about OT Generation fans, the future of Star Wars without the Skywalkers, and how to master Twitter.  Enjoy!

That's Not So Surprising

I was going to comment on the new episodes of Rebels today, but when thinking about them, another thought came to mind.  Still, if you haven't watched the newest episodes of Rebels, you may want to stay away from this episode for now.  You've been warned!

Black Panther

Spoiler Alert! Do not listen to today's episode until after you've seen Black Panther!  Why? Because I link the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the past and the future of Star Wars films!  Really!

LT12P Conversations #0003

Just like yesterday, (and probably tomorrow too), I have another episode of LT12P Conversations.  Today I talk with Mike Ehmcke about things that bother us in the realm of Star Wars Fandom.  (Yup, I'm a curmudgeon!).  You probably know Mike from his podcasts WeBeGeeks, Mightly Marvel Geeks and one of my favorites, Wookiee Radio.  Be sure to check out his shows as well.

Remember, LT12P Conversations is longer than the normal Less Than 12 Parsecs episode.  This show clocks in around 25 minutes!  Enjoy!

LT12P Conversations #0002

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

Well, last month, I started dipping my toes into some long form content. And I'm back again with another episode of...  LT12P Conversations!

The premise of these conversations is that I 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.  And, 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.  Our conversations always 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 recorded two weeks ago with Evan Pettit, the mastermind behind one of the greatest Star Wars themes Twitter accounts, @Rick_Olie_Quote.  What question did I ask him?  Well, you'll have to listen to find out!  And after you've listened, go follow Evan on Twitter!  Thank you and enjoy!

Jedi Library Wish List

Today's episode is over 7 minutes in length, but just barely.  Normally, I do not allow myself to cross this line, but since I have not posted this week, I will allow this infraction of the LT12P bi-laws, just this one time! ;-)

Today's topic was suggested by my friend and yours, Mr. Dennis Keithly, co-host of Starships, Sabers and Scoundrels.  If you have a suggestions for a LT12P episode, please do not hesitate to let me know! I'm always open to new ideas!

So here you go, my wish list of five items I would love to add to my Jedi Library.  Enjoy!

Responding To The Responces

So, I received a lot of feedback about yesterday's episode.  Thank you!  But... 

I'm not sure I really got my point across yesterday, so today I try to clarify the situation.  But...

I may have just made things even more confusing, because I did not script today's episode.  I just started talking, and well, that's not always a good thing! 

Anyway, please listen and let me know what you think.  Maybe tomorrow I'll do a response to your responses about my responding!

Gut Reaction: SOLO Trailer... Kinda

Here are my initial thoughts on the new trailers for SOLO. 

Sorta, kinda. 

I start on this topic, but actually spend most of the episode discussing another topic that's been on my mind quite a bit recently...  Is Star Wars still special?  Have a listen to hear what I mean, and then let me know what you think!

Connections or Crazy?

OK, either I've discovered something cool, or I'm just crazy.  I seemed to have found a connection between the Lego Star Wars The Freemaker Adventures cartoon show and the new hyper reality experience, Secrets of the Empire!  Have a listen and let me know what you think!

AND, if you are able to spoil the story for me and tell me if I am right or wrong, please do!  Email me at TwelveParsecsPodcast@gmail.com, or leave a comment below!  Thanks!
