    Hey! You two keep adding podcasts, and I am falling farther and farther behind!

    Okay, today I am going to start working my way backward, and by the end of the month, I should be caught up! 🙂 Whew!

    It will be grand to listen to you both once again. 🙂

    I’ve hated the younger gen females early WHINGING and RANTING about perceived gender differences. First off, The OT Star Wars core cast is 90% WHITE&male no1. – the IMPERIALS and BADDIES (?stereotye whites are the only ones to be imperial tyrants and fascists because recent global BritEmpire&Nazi white history was used to make a point) by TRADITION are nearly 100% WHITE/British. THAT LOGICALLY is leaving left about 4-5 NEW CAST to diversify.

    THREE ARE CHILDREN OF past OT SW Cast(WHITE & following EU with ONE female), The FINAL 2 roles One actor(Oscar) is HISPANIC! And BOYEGA is possibly Obiwan’s or Landos CHILD. Yeah one of them could have been a female but I think they are trying for the TRADITIONAL TRIO of 2 young MEN and ONE STRONG FEMALE.

    THIS IS NOT EVEN THE TENS of DOZENS of Secondary SUPPORT Characters to be CAST and announced. Fans need to zip it until THE DAY AFTER Dec. 18 2015, WHEN EVERYTHING IS SET IN STONE. Reusing the EU under other names is a given (example faux MaraJade is coming with an actress’ RED HAIR CUT FOR A WIG in the new movie, female Imperials from EU and ethnicities is huge) and the REST of the cast could be female. I will complain the minute I LEAVE THE THEATER first day, not UNTIL THEN.
