Guess what? We’ve been podcasting for ONE WHOLE YEAR! To celebrate, Caitlin and Charlotte are revising their “Star Wars Dinner” picks from their first episode. Then, we take your questions on all things Star Wars opinions, including how we relate to Kylo Ren, what the best thing about starting a podcast is, what figurative “hill” we would have died on last year, and our year in podcasting. Then, we answer some personal questions: What do we want out of 2018? What’s Caitlin’s most embarrassing moment? Finally, we thank so many people who have made this past year the best ever. This episode is very reflective and personal on all things fandom and friendship.
