***SPOILER WARNING*** There is discussion about the EW Star Wars article from about the 3:00 mark to the 21:30 mark. Just in case that's a bit too spoilery for you.

This week, Ben and Ash talk about one of the more quietly appreciated heroes of the Star Wars universe: Padme Amidala. She's often unfairly compared to Leia, when in reality, both characters fill the same role but in a different way, if that makes sense. Our hosts think it's an important distinction to make. Also, her death was total BS. I think we can all agree that she deserved so much better.
