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:

With the release of The Eternals just a few weeks away, we're asking the question lots of MCU fans are: Who are the Celestials? The answer has HUGE ramifications for the MCU (including the X-Men). And it may show us a bit about ourselves too.

We walked out of the theater after watching the latest James Bond movie, "No Time To Die" with very different opinions. BB-N8 loved it. The rest of us di...

It's the cool thing to hate on the Star Wars Sequels. What started out as legit criticisms of The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, feels more and more like group think.

We experienced this all weekend at Alabama Comic Con. Including a bizarre interaction with a server at Buffalo Wild Wings who basically approached us by saying, "I love Star Wars. I hate the Sequels."

This Week on Tatooine Sons:

A couple of us were less than thrilled with the Season 1 finale, "What If...The Watcher Broke His Oath." We'll see if having a few minutes to discuss it helps us process that crazy Gomora appearance that made no sense.

Next, we'll look at one of the more unappreciated shorts in Star Wars Visions, "Akakiri." This one goes down a philosophical path about destiny and free will. (And B...
