Tatooine Sons: A Pop Culture Podcast

Tatooine Sons: A Pop Culture Podcast

#2 ON SCREEN RANT'S LIST OF "10 BEST STAR WARS PODCASTS FOR FANS, RANKED!" "Although it doesn't focus on Star Wars exclusively, discussion about the Star Wars universe still makes up a large portion of the content in this podcast. Despite dipping their toes into the MCU, DC, etc. the Star Wars content in no way takes a backseat and is just as in-depth and detailed as any Star Wars exclusive content out there...This is a great podcast for those who are interested in Star Wars but still like to have a break to talk about their other favorite movie franchises as well." - Matthew Flores, ScreeRant.com Tatooine Sons is a positive, family-friendly podcast hosted by David Jesse and his two teenage sons, Sam (20) and Nathan (16). We believe that pop-culture is the mythology of this generation. There is a story written on our souls. These myths speak to that story. Star Wars | MCU | DC | Comicbooks | LOTR | Cobra Kai Tatooine Sons was launched in December 2017 at "Tatooine Sons: A Star Wars Podcast." In December of 2018, Nathan (one of the hosts who at the time was 12 years old) asked Rian Johnson, the writer/director of "The Last Jedi": "What is the name of the porg on the Millennium Falcon?" Rian Johnson responded: "What do YOU think his name is?" When Nathan answered, "Maybe Terbus?" no one really believed the character would become official. But after a year and a half #MakeTerbusCanon campaign on social media, the character was officially named in the all-ages comic book series "Star Wars Adventures," issues 27-29. (https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Terbus) Tatooine Sons is hosted by David (the dad) , Samuel (20 years old) and Nathan (16 years old). We love how pop-culture helps us see that there is something bigger in the world. We discuss Star Wars, the MCU, DC, comicbooks, the Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Cobra Kai and pretty much anything else pop-culture related through the lens of modern mythology and the "greater story" we believe this mythology points toward.

This week on Tatooine Sons!

- It’s safe to say that Star Wars Visions has been very well received by both critics and audiences since its release earlier this week. We’re continuing our look at this groundbreaking anime series with the cutest of all the shorts, TO-B1. If you’re not paying attention closely, you might miss how much it feels like The Empire Strikes Back...

This is a weird episode! We're one host short, as BB-N8 is recovering from oral surgery (he's doing great). That doesn't stop Samuel the Hutt and Dad from breaking down all of the crazy information revealed in this week's episode of The Bad Batch! Then we speculate irresponsibly about Loki (Dad has a theory he's SURE is correct)! Join in all the fun and conversation!

Everyone sorta expected Crosshair to come to Bracca. Many even thought The Bad Batch would still be there when he arrived. But nobody expected THAT GUY to drop by at the end! What's going to happen now to Omega? And what does this mean for the rest of the season?

PLUS! Loki spent episode 2 being... well... Loki. Who's side is he on anyway? Is it the TVA? His own? And then they throw in Lady Loki?!? (Or did they...)

BUT WAIT!...

Well, the time has come. Loki has dropped on DIsney+ and as we always do, we’re going to breakdown and discuss some of the interesting parts of this week’s episode.

The Bad Batch has had a TON of easter eggs and callbacks to other Star Wars stories. But “Battle Scars” took that to a completely different level. Did you catch the deep dive into Black Spire Outpost from Galaxy’s Edge? Episode 7 felt like a fitting wrap up of the i...

If you joined us Thursday evening for The Bad Batch Pregame with Around the Galaxy on Twitter Spaces, you weren’t surprised at all about most of the developments in “Cornered.” Our amazing Twitter family predicted a supply run, the appearance of Fennec Shand, and even Hunter’s little ride on a speeder bike.
