#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 didn't. He'll explain why we're "dead" wrong. Finally, we're continuing our look at Star Wars Visions with a conversation on "The Duel."

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." Join us as we have a some fun discussing the similarities to current Star Wars fandom's treatment of the Sequels, with the way fans handled The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith over the past 20 years. Maybe there's HOPE for the future....THIS is Tatooine Sons!Website: https://tatooinesons.com/Save 15% on EVERYTHING at https://www.cufflinks.com/ by using the code: TATOOINE15Rate and Review on Podchaser: https://www.podchaser.com/TatooineSonsFollow the Show: https://podfollow.com/tatooine-sons-a-pop-culture-podcast/view
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 BB-N8 throws prequels Yoda under the bus again.)Finally, we've got all you need to know to get read for DC Fandome coming October 16th including all the movies, animation, games, comics and potential surprises.

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...- What If...Thor Were an Only Child certainly had a very different tone from any of the previous episodes. Thor is a frat boy. Loki is tall and blue and also best bros with Thor. And Darcy gets hitched to Howard the Duck by an Elvis impersonator. - Venom came out 3 years ago with mixed reactions. It was loved by most audience members but panned by critics. We will be going over some of the themes and points in the original Venom and we will speculate responsibly about Venom: Let There Be Carnage.PLUS:Our Bad News segment looks at at these 3 crazy "clickbait" headlines:“Why Star Wars Trilogy Editor Marcia Lucas Hates the Sequels” https://www.denofgeek.com/movies/star-wars-marcia-lucas-sequels/“Breaking News: Leaked Image Of Professor Xavier In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Confirms Patrick Stewart's Return”https://www.theilluminerdi.com/2021/09/21/eaked-image-of-professor-xavier/“WB Has Decided To Restore The Snyderverse”https://www.dkoding.in/newsline/wb-restore-the-snyderverse-zack-snyder-justice-league/BB-N8's Movie Moments:- Dear Evan Hanson hits the theaters to polarizing reviews- Shang Chi is about to become the top grossing film of 2021- The voice cast for Super Mario Brothers announcedAnd of course, we'll throw in some bad puns and a few "Dad Moments."THIS is Tatooine Sons!Website: https://tatooinesons.com/Design By Human Affiliate Store: ihttps://shareasale.com/u.cfm?d=838912&m=99408&u=2070708&afftrack=Rate and Review on Podchaser: https://www.podchaser.com/TatooineSonsFollow the Show: https://podfollow.com/tatooine-sons-a-pop-culture-podcast/view

Killmonger Rescued Tony Stark?"- Disney+ and Marvel Studios gave us an early Christmas gift with the release of the first trailer for Hawkeye!

Plus we try to answer the question, "Where's Linda Barton?"- Last week, Lucasfilm, Sony, and Aspyr announced the long-awated remake of Knights of the Old Republic.

A great pop culture podcast for anyone who likes syfy, DCU/MCU. A show that not only canonized a Star Wars character (Turbis) but also explores tough topics in a gracious, wise, and biblically centered manner
