I have a bad podcast about this.

Apr 30, 2016

Try This One Wild Theory By George Lucas: http://io9.gizmodo.com/george-lucas-wild-theory-about-the-narrator-of-star-war-1772296162

Correction: Artoo isn't on Takodana in The Force Awakens; he's on the Rebel base on D'Qar.  Sorry about that.

Star Wars Special: C-3PO: The Phantom Limb is a Marvel comic that explains Threepio's new red arm.  It is surprisingly tragic, as we explain.

Chopper or C1-10P is one of the stars of the animated series Star Wars Rebels.  Dave Filoni describes him as the "cat" to Artoo-Detoo's "dog."  He is usually fairly unpleasant, but some of us think he has his reasons.

HK-47 is a beloved droid from the Knights of the Old Republic series of video games.  He frequently refers to organics as meatbags, and prefaces his dialogue with "Statement," "Query," or "Affirmation," etc. as appropriate.  He's the best.

AP-5 or Snapebot or Alan Rickmanbot is a droid that appears in a recent episode of Star Wars Rebels and befriends Chopper.  His voice was an intentional homage to the late Alan Rickman.

We never talked about it in the episode, but both Omri (Threepio's friend from his comic) and AP-5 are RA-7 model droids.  Huh.  Interesting.

Triple-Zero is an evil version of See-Threepio who is programmed in over six million forms of torture.  He appears in the Darth Vader comic with his counter-part, the assassin droid known as Bee-Tee.

IG-88 is one of the bounty hunters hired by Darth Vader to capture the Millennium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back.  He is an independent assassin droid.

4-LOM is another droid who is one of the bounty hunters hired by Vader, and he's also masterless.  He's partners with Gand Findsman / Legends schizophrenic Zuckuss.

B-1 Battle Droids (or as I call them, "Rogers") are the hapless minions of the Trade Federation and later, the Confederacy.  They are treated as utterly disposable by everyone.

TAY was a Twitterbot created by Microsoft that the internet ruined.  http://www.theverge.com/2016/3/24/11297050/tay-microsoft-chatbot-racist

The fan theory Johnny mentioned (that we also discussed in Episode 5) is here: http://km-515.livejournal.com/746.html

Did you all do the homework Kat assigned you?  If so, tweet it to us, or post it in the subreddit at r/oneshotpodcast/
