Free Range Idiocy

Episode 14: Star Wars - The Rise Of Skywalker

January 10, 2020

The dynamic duo of idiocy is joined by special guest Jimmy Dice of Scruffy Looking Podcasters (a weekly Star Wars podcast right here on Podbean) to dissect, digest, and digress on the topic of the end of the Skywalker Saga. We talk about what we liked, what we didn't, and where we'd place this film in the overall saga. Buckle up, we're about to make the jump to light speed.
