By now you’ve likely read our initial impressions of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. And you probably came back to read our spoiler-filled review of the movie. But have you listened to our podcast on the topic? Carl Franzen and Xavier Harding head back to Jakku against Finn’s wishes to revisit the latest episode in the classic saga Star Wars. As you may likely expect, we will be freely discussing movie details in this podcast. You’ve been warned.

(Movie spoilers ahead)

In the podcast we touch on who Rey’s parents may possibly be, the nuances of Kylo Ren and the question of whether The Force Awakens‘ similarities to A New Hope are as bad as many have made it out to be. Along with that, who is more of a new Yoda to Rey: Luke Skywalker or Maz Kanata?

Without further adieu, we present the PopSci Star Wars ‘Cast! In the words of Finn, “come get it.”
