Surprise, surprise! We’re actually covering Star Wars on this show. The “Skywalker Saga” is “finally” “complete”. We give our thoughts on the new movie, the new trilogy, and our wishes/speculation for the future of the franchise.

Guess what? We talk about old movies too. “Old” in the case meaning from 2004, a fact which I got wrong on the podcast but my wife helpfully corrected. I still can’t believe I got that wrong.
Incredibles 2 is right around the corner so now is the perfect time to revist one of Pixar’s best movies.

The Workshop is a podcast I started with my friend Eric Ortscheid after we realized that all of our interaction basically sounded like we were on a podcast anyway. Might as well record our conversations, I guess.
It’s called The Workshop as in we’re “workshopping” that idea. It’s not a show about woodworking or DIY projects or something. Heck no.
We’ve been talking about doing this for months and at some point it turned from a joke into an actual thing. People we know have told us they would listen to a podcast if we actually did one. We’re calling their bluff.
Will this be interesting to anybody but us? I donno, but we had fun making it and it’s fun to make things even if it’s just shooting the breeze in a fairly flippant manner.
