Apologies for the delay folks. I'll be honest, Patreon support matters more than either as neither Marc nor I have a working laptop at the moment and holy fuck is being restricted to a desktop, which my wife uses for business use full time, is not helpful! And also, if you were a Patron, you'd have had this 5 days earlier!!

Anyway! Steve Nixon joins us for our annual Star Wars chat as we go deep on The Last Jedi, a film which you literally cannot escape unless you don't live in this timeline (hey, if you're time-fluid, I'm not gonna judge).

Don't think much else gets talked about but shit, it was recorded a week ago.

I just had to upload this using a FTP client for god's sake. Help us get machines which actually work.
