Emma is joined by podcasting extraordinaire Chad Ellis to discuss the first film in the most recent of Star Wars trilogies, The Force Awakens. We share our love for this movie, and our stories of first seeing it (Chad's is way cooler). Plus: characters and world-building, Kylo & wine bros, Byronic heroes, sacred texts, appreciation of Adam Driver, the superiority of practical effects, shipping Poe and Finn, and Droids for millennials. 

Follow Chad on Twitter @ChadManic, and make sure to check out their podcast Station Blue (@StationBluePod), as well as Hit The Bricks (@HitTheBricksPod) and Arden (@ArdenPod).
