Caitlin and Charlotte bring Hammie (@balancedpadawan) on Skytalkers to discuss the Dyad — Rey and Ben Solo. They discuss the origins, the word etymology and origins, “the mythical dyad.” Then, they talk about the dyad’s function specifically in the Star Wars narrative; how it relates to the Chosen One prophecy, how it fits in with the concept of “twos”. Finally, they wildly speculate about the future: Can Ben Solo be brought back? How would we like to see it? What about the World Between Worlds? All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers.
Caitlin and Charlotte are joined by author Ian Doescher to discuss the wonderful intersection of Shakespeare and Star Wars with the new release of “The Merry Rise of Skywalker”. We talk process, parallels, the Reylo Romeo & Juliet parts, Hamlet comparisons, and much, much more.
Hello! We wanted to take a moment and write a little bit about our sticker sheets that just launched on our website! While we’ve had different merchandise through the past few years (see: our incredible “Look to the Animation Department for the Future of Star Wars” design from our friend, James W), our sticker sheet also felt very on brand for us! We wanted a way to incorporate a lot of our favorite things and sayings into one place and a sticker sheet seemed like the best fit.
Caitlin has been an avid bullet journaler the past few years and recently has started to grow a little sticker collection of her own. The idea for a Skytalkers-themed sticker sheet grew from there. A couple of months ago, we hired one of our long time friends, Katie Gettys (we all went to middle and high school together), who has a sticker shop on Etsy called Exploremoredesigns, co and she worked with us to design a sticker sheet that highlighted some of our favorite sayings and things from Star Wars (You can see in some photos the stickers put to good use in Caitlin’s bullet journal already!).
Of course, there is Dave’s hat, the Revenge of the Sith novelization, George’s plaid shirt, and the Reylo of it all: the hands are a language and the amazing kiss. If you’ve listened to our show, you know these sayings and items are a part of nearly every conversation we have. Our sticker sheet felt like a fun way to celebrate some of the things we love to talk about most on Skytalkers and with our listeners as well!
We created a limited run of these sticker sheets to start off with, with the hope of making more in the future if there is enough interest. We hope you enjoy! Please share with us and tag @skytalkerspod on Twitter and @skytalkerspodcast on Instagram where you put the stickers (aka, please share your bullet journal pages, calendars, laptops, and more!).
