Dadawan #6: Celebrating Life Day and the Year of 'Star Wars'

Dadawans Geek Culture Movies Television


Welcome to episode six of Dadawan, a podcast covering the Star Wars universe from a GeekDad perspective. Just in time for the New Year, we’re ending 2015 on a fun note and celebrating Life Day with a look back at the bizarro world of 1978’s infamous Star Wars Holiday Special. Before that, we look back at the year in Star Wars, and contemplate the strange comments George Lucas made this week regarding Disney. Stay tuned to the end of the episode for a special, brief interview with Star Wars stuntman Dicky Beer, who recalls working as Boba Fett’s stunt double, and the perils of falling into the Sarlacc pit.

Have a listen and join in on the discussion in the comments below.

Dadawan is all about the new and the old, from Star Wars toys, books, games, TV shows, and comics to the magic of the movies themselves. With the barrage of new Star Wars movies, media, and merchandise, there is a lot to digest. Dadawan is here to help you sort through it, including exclusive interviews with the creators and fans who make that galaxy far, far away so memorable.
