1,459: Star Wars and the "Public Trust"
If I've learned anything in the past four years, and especially in the past six months, it was that I was wrong about something fundamental from the very get-go. In Episode #1 of the podcast back in 2014, I asserted that Star Wars belonged to us as fans, and that George Lucas created a new kind of public trust by creating something so culturally resonant as Star Wars. Well, parts of the reasoning were true, but the conclusion was anything but. Punch it!
