Meta Minute

  • Listeners that called the hotline to say "Millennium Falcon" had their calls stitched together at the top of Minute 53
  • Tony will reprise his surprisingly good TIE fighter sound in Star Wars Minute: Weekend Edition 64.
  • The Indy 500 is an automobile race that is a total of 500 miles in length, requiring 200 laps of the 2.5 mile track to finish. Running it in 400 would mean being 40 laps short of completing the race.


  • Alex: (In a hoity-toity British accent) Lovey, bring up the Falcon, won't you?"
  • Pete: Fast ship? ...It ran the Indy 500 in 400!
  • Pete: I'll have a venti macchiato, and no questions. Alex: Is that for here or to go? Pete: I SAID NO QUESTIONS!
  • Alex: (In reference to the visual of a Millennium Falcon swarming with roaches) Somebody recreate that. Pete: Please don't.
