Are those pesky Star Wars prequels really as bad as everyone says they are? With the release of The Star Wars Saga on Blu-ray, we decided to attempt to answer this question once and for all. As we announced last week, this is the first of what will hopefully be many bonus podcasts that we will be releasing every so often in addition to the regular weekly Film Junk Podcast. We will be making them available in exchange for a small donation to help support the Film Junk Podcast and cover our operating costs. We’re not looking to get rich, and we know that many of our listeners are in different financial situations, so we thought we would let you name your price (although there is a minimum donation of 99 cents required).
For the time being we have decided to use Bandcamp to host these special premium episodes. As the name implies, the site is mostly geared towards independent bands, but they have flexible pricing and a simple interface. In order to make the full 3 hour podcast available, we had to break it up into multiple chapters. Hopefully this isn’t too much of an inconvenience, but on the bright side, you can download it in multiple formats and the sound quality is much higher than any previous podcasts we have released. We hope that you will find it entertaining and worthwhile, and we welcome any feedback and suggestions for topics to cover on future bonus episodes. Head on over to Bandcamp and download the full episode now!
