Ep 79 – The Rise of Skywalker

ReyNow that we’ve  seen Rise of Skywalker, we’ve brought Becky back to talk about it!  On our last episode, the three of us talked about the ethical questions, hopes, and concerns we had going into this movie- this episode we revisit them, and ask, how did this movie address them? 

What happened with the Jedi? Did Rey get the character arc she deserved? And does Hanukkah Harry use the same merit based system of gift allocation that Santa Claus does?

We’re pleased to have Becky Allen join us for this discussion. Becky Allen is the author of Bound by Blood and Sand and the sequel, Freed by Flame and Storm. She grew up outside Ithaca, New York, and graduated from Brandeis University with a major in American studies and a minor in journalism. She is the product manager for TheBody.com, an online HIV resource, and loves New York, brunch, and feminism.

We mentioned a few links in the episode, including Hanukkah Harry, Becky’s podcast episode about The Christmas Prince, and Matthew’s Facebook live blog of the movie, inspired by Becky’s podcast.
