Meta Minute

  • 15:34 podcast episode length.
  • This minute has the longest episode title.
  • For the episode that dropped one year ago on this day, the opening theme was replaced with The Stars and Stripes Forever in honor of the July 4th holiday. This was not repeated for today's episode.
  • Ad-read: starwarsminute.com/amazon
  • Hardangerjøkulen is the sixth largest glacier in Norway.
    • As near as we can tell, this is pronounced like "Har-Dong-ge-GYO-kyoo-lun" (Editors note: we welcome corrections from any Norwegian contributors!)
  • Captain Needa was played by actor Michael Culver.
  • After this episode, the guys began their second hiatus. The next episode to be dropped in the feed is a brief summer update plugging the next live show, and then the hiatus officially ended in January.


  • Alex: ...we analyze, scrutinize, and watery eyes...
  • Alex: To be frank— Pete: —Oz.
  • Alex: (as FX-7) I'm sorry. You have a mild case of Besspin Kaalida.
