Description

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.

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!! There's MORE! BB-N8 is going to try to continue to explain "The Batman Who Laughs" to Samuel the Hutt and Dad. Sam seems to be following along ok. Dad, not so much. Whatever happens, it will be entertaining!THIS is Tatooine Sons!Check out our NEW Shirts on TeePublic!

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 introduction to this series. Lots of questions were answered. And with those answers, came a lot of new ones. PLUS!BB-N8 will (try) to explain "The Batman Who Laughs" Miniseries, the second part of the Metal Trilogy!It's TIME for Tatooine Sons!Check out our NEW Shirts on TeePublic!

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
