Episode 8 – How Sith Work

Sith

Sup, bro.

Meet the most exclusive club in the galaxy: the Sith. With their mysterious origins as exiled Jedi, the Sith went through long growing pains, until finally reaching their stride. The boys go into detail about what it takes to make it as a Sith apprentice, why the ‘rule of two’ worked so well and how the greatest trick the Sith ever played was convincing the galaxy they were irrelevant.

Join us on the dark side, there will be cake.

Episode 7 – There’s Something About Endor

Endor

Don’t leave your children unattended with Ewoks

Running a galactic empire is hard! Stress cracks start to show by the beginning of Return of the Jedi, and sure enough a cunning race of creatures is there to exploit it.

Join the boys as they discuss the cutest, most blood thirsty and most “easily religious” teddy bears of the galaxy. Beyond the Ewoks, the Battle of Endor shows how the Sith fell to their greatest enemy yet: bureaucracy.

Many Bothans died to give us the Emperor’s Instagrams.

Endor

As promised, Mt. Sorrow

Episode 6 – How Droids Work

Droids

A droid being drawn and quartered, no big deal

To wipe or not to wipe? No this episode isn’t about personal hygiene in the galaxy, it’s about droids. To be honest, the role of droids in the galaxy makes the boys a tad uncomfortable. Were they mere tools meant only to benefit the master, or were they true, albeit inorganic beings sentenced to a life of toil and eventual dismemberment? Maybe by the end of this episode, you’ll be ready to rid the universe of “meatbags.”

Bonus points for those who recognize the theme from our end credits.

Episode 5 – The Huttcast

Jabba the Hutt

This is love.

The Hutts: those obese, rascal-riding slugs that gross out the galaxy. It’s a good idea to avoid the Hutts if possible. They have their own chunk of the galaxy carved out for themselves for a reason. The boys offer up their advice for how to deal with a Hutt should you go up against one, but discover just how dangerous it is to do so.

Our sincerest apologies go out to our listeners from Las Vegas, Ohio, Detroit, any fans of Ty Pennington and people still living with their parents.

…ok just America in general. Sorry America.

Episode 4 – How To Go Fast In The Galaxy

Hyperspace

But seriously how do you put out engine fires?

Space: The infinite frontier. Or something. But still, space…it’s really big! How do all those people zip all around the galaxy so easily? How do down-trodden aliens (and only one human apparently) rip through crazy, chaotic and dangerous podracing courses? How does one not only go fast…but Hyperspace-fast? On this episode of Loose Canon the boys talk about how the mechanics of such things in the Star Wars universe work, and how those concepts relate to some familiar scenes from the movies. Don’t worry, they’ll take it slow with you.

Episode 3 – Why Aren’t Droids Allowed In The Cantina?

Cantina

Arguably Hasbro’s best offering

Why aren’t droids allowed in the cantina? This is a burning question for you isn’t it? It’s probably the biggest enigma from Episode IV. What’s the big beef with droids at the galaxy-famous Mos Eisley Cantina? Is it prejudice? Is Wuher just a big bully? Or is it something more?

Also the boys contemplate the musical stylings of the house band at length…

Episode 2 – How Wookiees Work

Wookiees

That sexy, wind-blown look

Savage beast? Lovable fuzzball? Or the most vital agent for good in the galaxy? The trio uncovers just who Chewbacca is and what makes him tick. The guys also introduce the syllabus for their upcoming Wookiee culture comparative studies course beginning this fall. Register soon, spots are moving fast.

Bonus segment: it’s a small galaxy after all.

Episode 1 – How Jedi Work

Jedi

Tatooine native, Luke Skywalker, has trouble adjusting to forest ecosystems: “Just look at all these trees!”

It ain’t easy being Jedi. In this episode, the boys cover what it takes to make it at the Jedi Academy and why Anakin had it rough as a Jedi. Also what does it take to balance the Force? Certainly it has something to do with the Sith, right?
