Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (Trailer)

Join Scott and his special guest, resident Star Wars expert Paul (in a rare, live in-studio appearance) as they breakdown every little detail of the new trailer for the highly anticipated second installment in the new Star Wars trilogy: "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi"! Listen as they discuss what this trailer shows us, and if it's an accurate depiction of what we'll see in the movie. Is Snoke looking to upgrade his apprentice from Kylo Ren to Rey? Will Rey turn to the dark side of the force? Are Porgs a good sign for Star Wars fans? Will Luke or Leia die in this film? These are just some of the questions they address. They'll also talk about some of the new elements of the film: our first look at Snoke (not in holographic form), the salty mineral planet Crait, the new AT-M6 walkers, (sigh) Porgs, and much more. Will The Last Jedi be a ripoff of The Empire Strikes Back? Will they flip the script and have the protagonist turn evil in the darkest Star Wars installment yet? Or does the trailer just have a bunch of force visions cut together to confuse us? Let's guess together! May the force be with us!

Animaniacs: Yakko’s World/Cookies for Einstein/Win Big

Join Scott, Shawn and Jonah as they take a look back at one of the most sharp and irreverent cartoons of the 90's: "Animaniacs"! Listen as they breakdown and review the second episode of the series, featuring Yakko singing a somewhat accurate list of countries in the classic segment "Nations of the World", the Warner brothers (and Warner sister) trying to earn merit badges in Switzerland by selling Kid Scout cookies to a frustrated Albert Einstein in "Cookies For Einstein", and our introduction to two genetically altered lab mice named Pinky and The Brain who attempt to take home prize money on a TV quiz show in "Win Big". They'll talk about the history of the series from a Fox Kids cartoon with Steven Spielberg's backing to a mainstay of Kids WB, and possibly beyond. They'll also point out some of the loving references to old Hollywood, nitpick Yakko's idea of which lands are actually nations, reveal the big secret behind Pinky and The Brain's big scheme, and much, much more! So grab a box of cookies and a cup of Swiss Miss, turn off Wheel of Misfortune and get zany to the max with us! Hellooooooooooo Nurse!!!

(And also, Shawn takes a couple of minutes at the end to share his thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery.)
