TEP’s “The Last Jedi” episode: We Need Your Help!!

We are getting so close to Star Wars: The Last Jedi right now, and I am so excited!! Sadly, I won’t be getting to see this newest installment until after Christmas, but that won’t stop me from ramping up the excitement for the film with The Elven Padawan! Since you probably won’t be hearing a whole lot concerning The Last Jedi from me after the release, I’d like to try something new and fun before it, and I need all your help!

Some of you may have already seen this on my Twitter feed, but for those of you who haven’t, I still want your help. I’m trying to put together a “community input” episode for The Last Jedi. You know how many news channels often go out on the streets and ask random people they see questions concerning different things, then clip all these bits together into one presentation? I’ve always loved to watch those, so I’ve decided to try it out with The Elven Padawan podcast!

Here’s how it all works, as I posted about it on Twitter:

Does all that make sense? In short, I’m trying to collect as many people’s input on these questions as possible, then edit them all together and release the podcast in time for the premier of The Last Jedi.

Like I said in the tweets, you don’t have to do anything fancy. Just let me know if you’re interested (you can email me at: shay@elvenpadawan.com), and I’ll send you the all the info, including the questions and instructions for how to get them back to me, and you can be part! And like I said, all you have to have is a smartphone, tablet, or computer with an audio recorder (which almost all devices have reloaded onto them when purchased), and some excitement for The Last Jedi.

As of right now I have a few people interested, but I’d like to get this out as much as possible and get as many people as I can involved. It’s a fun project that I’m really excited to see turn out, and I think it might help gather some more attention for The Elven Padawan. So if you have friends or family members who might be interested as well, pass this on to them, or get together in a group and record all your answers at once!

I know this is a bit of a short notice, as The Last Jedi releases at midnight Friday morning for most people, and many are getting in to see it even earlier than that on Thursday, and I’m hoping to get it out Thursday night at the latest. But I still think we can do this and make it awesome with your help. 🙂

So who’s up for it?? Cummon, Star Wars fans, let’s do this thing!! 😀

The Elven Padawan is go!

My dear friends and fellows, fangirls and fanboys, geeks and geek-esses….

I have an announcement.

The Elven Padawan podcast is FINALLY up and running!! Yes, that’s right, as of right now, episode #1 of The Elven Padawan is up on this site!!

The Elven Padawan episode 1: Of Beginnings, Balrogs, and Bucketheads

That link above takes you right to the podcast section of this website, where you can listen in conveniently. Or if you have a SoundCloud account, you can listen and follow there, too. The podcast will also soon be up on iTunes, so be looking for it there as well (and I’ll have an update here when it happens, also.)

Three cheers and an Ewok celebration for the final release of this episode!! It’s taken me way longer than I originally planned, but now it’s out. And I’m planning lots of fun stuff for the next several episodes, so keep your scanners on, and get ready!

Now Open for Questions!!

Suilad! Hello all!

I will be recording the first episode of The Elven Padawan podcast tomorrow.

I am now officially open for question/comment submissions!

If you have any questions that you would like me to talk about on the podcast, comments to read-air, or even ideas for discussion topics, please leave them in the comments for this post.

Here’s a little-bitty teaser for the episode! One thing I’ll be touching on is why Stormtroopers can’t hit the broad side of a cargo transport… 😉

Thanks to all you guys for your awesome support in getting this show up and running! I can’t wait to see what ideas you have for me!

Novaer! See you soon!
