Episode 6: This Sith is on Fire


In this episode, we talk about why you should just say no to dueling inside of an actively erupting volcano. At least not without proper protective equipment. (But preferably not all.) Our favorite (not) medical droids make another appearance and are still in dire need of a software update. Who's in charge here anyway? And where's a scrunchy when you need one?


  • We recorded this episode back in 2018, which was when Kilauea erupted.

  • The medical droids, once again, get their licenses revoked.
