Meta Minute

  • 33:29 podcast episode length.
  • 8-DAY-GREEDO call from Jason in Denver. Imitating Lando's pronunciation of "too close".
  • According to Wookieepedia, the Cloud car was an atmospheric vehicle, so they do not count as spaceships.
  • When they brought up the number of actors to play Wedge on the big screen before, they determined there were a total of three, if you count Fake Wedge.
  • The first time that the Falcon's headlights went on, the hosts didn't bring it up.
  • This is the minute the hosts will reference when it is later revealed that the Falcon has a new radar dish in TFA.


  • Songe: I am Songe Riddle, from "Russia with Love".
  • Alex: (paraphrasing Sidney Poitier in In the Heat of the Night) They call me "Mister Ackbar!"
  • Rachel: Speaking of pulling a knob...
  • Rachel then Pete: (sounding very similar to the Mouse droid) "Phil Tippett. Tippett."
  • Pete: "Simon Pegg made him shoot things." That defense is not going to hold up.
  • Pete: What's his [Green 4's] name? "Steve Johnson"?
