050 — Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Live!)

Feel a great disturbance in the force, as though a huge number of voices cried out “this book bites!” and were not silenced, ever. This episode, IDEOTV makes the jump to hyperspace with our first live show! It features singalongs, audience readings, and all the hilarity and hate that come with a hastily-produced tie-in cash-grab like Alan Dean Foster’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Enjoy J. and Collision and a crowd of literally dozens as they rule the galaxy* and rue the day they decided to read this tepid mess.

So hit DOWNLOAD on the ONLY podcast episode that is GUARANTEED to beam you up! – by putting a big, beaming smile on your face, of course! Polish your droid and keep one hand on your blaster as we join the “characters” in this book in asking, plaintively, “What’s going to happen next?”

*Or at least the great Stage Werx Theatre in beautiful San Francisco.
