    Ep 72: Taking on "The Last Jedi" with Allison O'Toole and Jason Loo

    The newest Star Wars film, "The Last Jedi," is nothing if not noteworthy. To do it justice, RFK reunites the Star Wars panel, featuring comics editor Allison O'Toole (of Chapterhouse and Toronto Comics Press) and "Pitiful Human-Lizard" creator, Jason Loo. Why did this movie upset so many fans? Where do we go from here? And what does Luke's milk drinking mean for the Wookiepedia page on breasts?
