With the big casting news announced this week for Star Wars VII it's only fitting for the Coffee With Kenobi podcast to focus on this news.  Let your insightful and knowledgeable hosts decipher the news and who's who.

The other big news is the virtual line in the sand for the Expanded Universe.  It's still there but where does it go from here?

Also don't forget my regular feature on the show.  Your "espresso shot with The Bearded Trio."

In today’s show we talk about the gigantic news concerning the casting of Episode VII and the official answers to what will happen with the expanded universe.  This news completely took over the internet, and we’ll be here to break down what has happened, with BBC Cultural Editor Christian Blauvelt as well as our thoughts, and a few more surprises as well.

In our discussion segment, we share a cup of coffee with returning guest Scott Murray of Assembly of Geeks.  We continue our discussion of the existing Star Wars films in reverse order, continuing with The Empire Strikes Back.  We also have the next offering of  “Your Espresso Shot with The Bearded Trio” featuring Rob Wainfur. This is the Podcast You're Looking For!
