Educating [Geeks] S3 E07 – Return of the Jedi

This week on the Educating [Geeks] podcast Alice, Bri and Megan complete Cassie’s education in the Star Wars Trilogy during their discussion of Return of the Jedi. Megan gets totally distracted by all the cuteness, Bri shares a comic she discovered detailing the adventures of the Rancor and his trainer, Alice dares to utter the words “midi-chlorians,” and Cassie contemplates her future with the franchise. Grab your secret twin and hop on a speeder. It’s time to face the Emperor!

*SPOILER ALERT* — We talk about Return of the Jedi in its entirety, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, grab a buddy and have a fun evening together. Honestly, there are some spoilers from The Phantom Menace too, so it wouldn’t hurt to make it a marathon.


If you’d like to check out the comic about the Rancor and his trainer from artist Chris Gugliotti that Bri mentioned on the podcast, you can find it here:

Things got a little off topic, but it was for a good cause. We spent some time discussing book recommendations from the expanded universe. If you’d like to read any of the books we mentioned, you can find them here:

The Thrawn Trillogy

Alice also recommended the Legacy of the Force series. Get the first book in the nine-part series here.
