In show number 17, Paul Mcdonald joins Cory Clubb and Dan Z to discuss themes in Star Wars and in particular the often overlooked Prequel movies.  They're deeper than you think!

Also I bring you another "Espresso Shot With The Bearded Trio" and on this week's news I report on the cancelled Lucasarts Star Wars game, Spielberg and what's next for the director and how free donuts and pizza were given to fans waiting for John Williams' tickets.  I also announce the winner of the Lucasarts book, Rogue Leaders.

I also get an extremely nice shout out from the Coffee With Kenobi gang on the show and want to take this opportunity to thank them for such kind words.

Here's the show notes along with the link to the show.  This is the podcast you're looking for.
