Ash sat down with Lynn from Sapphic Skywalkers to discuss the best pilot in Star Wars Hera Syndulla!

Jan 12, 2018

Ah, yes. The Yoda episode finally happens. Thankfully we didn't get TOO off topic and push it back another week!

This episode is basically the most Skyhoppers episode to ever exist. Ben and Ash finally get to open their Commonwealth Secret Santa gifts, Storms of Crait and Battlefront DLC discussion, and then a bit of a grab bag to close out the episode. The Skyhoppers in their truest form!

Claudia Gray does it again! Leia, Princess of Alderaan is another fantastic entry into the Star Wars canon, and it gives some really great insight into how Leia developed into the person we know her as. If you haven't read this book, we here at the Skyhoppers can't recommend it highly enough.

We're back to our regularly scheduled programming! This week, Alex joins Ben and Ash to talk about The Last Jedi as well as a lot of the response to the movie from different sects of fans. While this movie most likely isn't as divisive as the narrative surrounding the movie has made it out to be, it certainly has some points of contention. However, all three hosts fall firmly into the "OMG IT'S SO GREAT" camp and probably will until the end of time.

***SPOILERS FOR THE LAST JEDI*** After what feels like a CENTURY of waiting, The Last Jedi is finally here!!! Ben and Ash absolutely loved it. This episode focuses mainly on the main characters, but even with it being as long as it is, there is still plenty of discussion to be had about this movie.

This episode is ostensibly about things from the Prequels that we want to see revisited in the Sequel Trilogy, but that isn't how the episode really ends up playing out. But Alexandra FINALLY joins us again! We've missed her. The Last Jedi talk ahead!

Dec 8, 2017

This week, Ben and Ash tackle a bit of a unique topic: the subject of school, academies, and other forms of teaching in the Star Wars universe. One thing we can all agree on is that the First Order is SUPER creepy.

November was all about The Legends of Luke Skywalker by Ken Liu, which is filled with great stories about everyone's favorite Jedi Knight! Except "The Lugubrious Mote." We don't like that one.

Everyone, grab your Bible juice. This is gonna be a wild ride. Ben and Ash get very philosophical about the Force in this episode, and go pretty deep. Change can be scary, but sometimes it's best to just roll with it. It might be hard to enjoy The Last Jedi if you can't.

Nov 24, 2017

Well, Ben and Ash were going to talk about something that WASN'T Battlefront this week, but that clearly did not go as planned. They touch pretty heavily on the story mode in the game and try to dodge some of the more contentious topics surrounding the game right now. One thing is definitely certain: Iden Versio is perfect.

Rebels ends the first half of its final season in a rather dramatic fashion, don't you think? We certainly do!

Also, we totally say "crawler commanders" throughout the whole episode. Please don't @ us.

Emperor Palpatine. What a guy, am I right? This week, Ash and Ben go deep on discussion of everyone's favorite greenish pruny baddie. This episode really could've gone a lot longer, but there's only so long we Skyhoppers feel comfortable monopolizing your time, ya feel?

Ash and Ben are biting off an awful lot with this episode. Four full episodes of Rebels to cover? And each one is filled with events that have far-reaching implications for the rest of the series? This one should be a doozy!

In this particularly disjointed episode, Ben and Ash try to tackle their excitement for Battlefront II! It's a little looser than usual, but hey, everyone wants to let their hair down every now and then. We here at the Skyhoppers Podcast are no exception.

Rebels is baaaccckkkkk!!!! This week, the Skyhoppers go all in on discussing the two-part premiere of season four, "Heroes of Mandalore." The discussion gets a bit derailed when they decide to do news at the end(?), but just call it a return to form.

This is a fun chat that Ash had with Rob from Talk Star Wars and Steve from San Diego Sabers about the new Last Jedi trailer. It was a really fun time and I hope you all enjoy it!

In honor of the release of "From A Certain Point of View" last week, Ben and Ash revisit their second topic ever: minor characters! The discussion bounces back and forth between FOCPOV and general minor character talk, and of course there's a lot of Breha Organa.

The Skyhoppers are also launching a Patreon! The details are discussed before the show starts, and we REALLY hope you'll listen to that, but if you have literally zero interest, skip to about nine minutes in and enjoy your regularly-scheduled Skyhoppers!

On this edition of the Seinhoppers Podcast, George and Kramer spend roughly an hour discussing the Unknown Regions (including an actually feasible Snoke theory) and the role it's played in Star Wars over the years. Jerry and Elaine commiserate about the fact that their showers don't work, leading them to devise a plan to sneak into a local health club after it closes to shower there.

This episode is probably long overdue. As our close-out to Rebels Month, the Skyhoppers are talking about everyone's favorite Togruta: Ahsoka Tano! This is also the first character episode that isn't about a movie character, and we're not sure if there is a character more deserving of that honor.

This week, the Skyhoppers continue with the theme of Rebels month and discuss the impact of the two major animated series in the current Star Wars canon, The Clone Wars and Rebels. Ben talks about Onderon and Ash talks about Ahsoka. Pretty standard Skyhoppers fare, really!

So. Uh. Ben and Ash had a topic for Rebels month this week, but then they started talking about comics. And that went on for a while. Then they started talking about JJ Abrams coming back for Episode IX. And that went on for a while. So they ran out of time. But that's okay! This is episode is classic Skyhoppers: two best friends talking about the stuff in Star Wars that gets them excited.

This week, Ben and Ash are joined by Ash's sister Maggie! You may remember her from the episode where we did a commentary for the Holiday Special (if you deigned to even listen to it). Ostensibly, this episode is about looking back at the first two seasons of Rebels, but the hosts spend a lot of time discussing the big news with Colin Trevorrow, as well as the Rebels Season 4 trailer. This is just a fun episode done in the classic Skyhoppers style!
