Rank #1: Blah Wars #75: The Rise Of Skywalker Teaser Trailer Reaction
John and Jude reform to discuss the Episode IX trailer and the film’s finally revealed trailer. We also have some catching up to do, including John’s exchange with Richard E Grant at a recent recording of Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast (this episode will be available on YouTube later this year), the fact that we are both working together again and therefore able to record more shows. We also return to the subject of the “Wish” sponsored advertisements we keep seeing on our Instagram feeds, and the bizarre products we are being targeted with (see Blah Wars #56 for more on this).
This episode was recorded in an Oxfordshire pub, early on a Saturday using handheld recorders. We didn’t know at the time but there was a great deal of digital audio interference from our mobile phones throughout the show. In addition to this, you’ll also hear clinks, chinks, glass being smashed, and the ever increasing sound of a pub as it fills with hungry people.
Never the less, we hope you enjoy it. In addition to this, a further 18 minutes of conversation was recorded and uploaded to our Patreon

Rank #11: Blah Wars #51: Star Wars Nostalgia Roadtrip
In this 90 minute special episode John and Jude pay a visit to Jude's childhood home in Rochester and the nearby Medway town of Chatham. Incidentally, John's grandparents lived in the nearby Gillingham, so its a nostaligic trip down memory lane for the both of them. On the way there we share some medway memories and once we get to Jude's house, we uncover his childhood collection of star wars toys and memorabilia. We also sit down for a chat with Jude's father Jon and learn a bit more about Jude's fascination with Star Wars, quirky characters and would you believe it, the Titanic. Before heading home, we stop by Chatham for a visit to D&A Toys in the Pentagon centre; a shop that's been in business since 1976. The manager Lee welcomed us into his office and we looked through classic photos of the shop from its 42 year history. Sadly, our conversation with Lee wasn't recorded properly, but we are able to give you the lowdown on what we discussed.

Back on the rooftop of our favourite pub, with what sounds like a gas leak in background. We have a big announcement to make and John's had a nasty fall.
