Youth Culture Killed My Dog, Episode 12: Where Did Luuke Skywalker Come From?Posted: 08/04/2014
In the twelfth episode of Youth Culture Killed My Dog, Roy Rogers, Christopher Fannon, and Jeff Kusterbeck discuss the latest news and reviews in American pop-culture – comics, movies, and television. This episode marks our first post-San Diego Comic-Con recap episode. We discuss a whole variety of news and rumors from that sweaty, line-filled tribute to American popular culture. On the docket is discussions of the costumes of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Firefly Online, the Game of Thrones Season 5 casting news, and the latest announcements from Marvel and Image Comics. For added measure we dig into a whole variety of Star Wars sequel rumors (Brienne with a lightsaber! Luke’s hand!) and Roy provides a long disquisition on the fate of Star Wars continuity.
As we are just getting this podcast started, we ask for patience as we work out technical and editing issues with our audio.
