How Star Wars Is It?

It's our sesquicentennial episode! They all said we'd never make it to episode 150 and we proved them wrong!

As always happens when we have guests, we somehow stay on topic more than usual. Mike also brings the game and tests the rest of our knowledge on whether certain famous Star Wars moments were scripted or improvised. Enjoy this bonus length episode, and join us as we both extol the virtues of and dunk left and right on improv and Star Wars. Check out Rob and Dugan on their podcast Talking Shop.
