33 – Best and Worst Star Wars Blasters and a History of the Lightsaber

On this week’s episode of “the best Star Wars podcast that is, coincidentally, also the best Disneyland podcast,” the guys celebrate the beginning of “Mandovember” by discussing the best blasters, weapons, and lightsabers in the Star Wars universe. Hear Scott and Aaron nerd out over things like E-11 and DL-44 blasters, whether the iMac-ification of the Imperial arsenal is a good/bad thing, and why lightsaber colors are meaningless to a very large portion of the population.

Also in this episode, Scott surprises Aaron with a very special item…not as clumsy or random as a blaster, but an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Listen in to Aaron’s live reaction to receiving his very own lightsaber from Rebel Sabers (www.rebelsabers.com)

Plus the guys look back on Halloween, look forward to Christmas, and look introspectively into their own hearts as they briefly discuss the first episode of Mandalorian, Season 2. It’s an out-of-this galaxy episode, you won’t want to miss!

32 – The Hatbox Ghost with Imagineer Jeff Moskowitz

Welcome foolish mortals to the season finale of “Cobwebs and Phantoms!” On this frightfully fantastic and spookterious episode, we are joined by our special guest, Walt Disney Imagineering Executive Portfolio Producer, personal friend, and all-around great guy, Jeffrey Shaver-Moskowitz.

Strap in for some spine-tingling “Banther” as Scott and Jeff reminisce about their times being Magic Kingdom entertainment cast members together and then hear Jeff’s natural professional progression from dancing swordsman to home security professional to beloved Imagineer!

We then venture into the depths of the Haunted Mansion to explore the history of the Hatbox Ghost and what role Jeff played in putting this Happy Haunt back in the Mansion. We round it out with some “Guestions” before sending our pal off with a pillowcase full of candy!

Hosts

To say this duo was dynamic would be misnomer considering they never change.

Aaron Robbins

Host
Aaron Absolute Humidity is a writer of regretful tales, professional markateer and amatuer waffle artist. He’s been the host of three previous Disneyland podcasts, likes talking and loves being listened to. While Aaron claims to have watched Star Wars Episode IV over 200 times, he still misquotes dialogue and believes the Clone Wars were about perfume. A little known fact about Aaron, he doesn't like when other hosts try to make their bio longer than his and has been known to add pointless sentences at the end of his own bio to make it appear longer. He thinks the best part of Star Tours has always been the queue.

Scott Storm

Host
Scott Storm is a husband, dad, podcaster, and former Disney Royalty. He’s explored every inch of the Utilidors, took up residency in Cinderella’s Castle, and has slept overnight on Main Street, U.S.A.. He’s likely the only lawyer who’s ever studied for the Bar Exam on the back of a parade float and equally likely to have missed his true vocational calling as a game show host. He owns a mint Blue Snaggletooth and once shared an apartment with Darth Vader. Next to his wedding and the birth of his children, Scott’s happiest day on Earth was when Disney purchased Lucasfilm. He denies the existence of the Star Wars Special Editions.
