#23: BELTWAY BANTHAS MEETS NPR POLITCS

This week Beltway Banthas was joined by Tamara Keith & Scott Detrow of the NPR Politics Podcast.

In a conversation any political and public radio junkie won’t want to miss, we dive into the politics of Star Wars and some of Star Wars most enduring cultural themes that resonate with people from 1977 to today.

We start by catching up with friend of the show and White House Correspondent for NPR, Tamara Keith, previously featured for a interview on Beltway Banthas. She shares her thoughts on Rogue One the finality of its characters, Tarkin’s reanimation and her experience seeing the movie. Later we’re joined by Scott Detrow, who Congress for NPR. These two are well known for their Star Wars fandom and they didn’t disappoint. We discuss the confusing aspects of Star Wars politics, Rogue One’s political message (intended and unintended), the role of Disney in Star Wars future and also the political parallels from Star Wars to today.

We want to thank NPR, Scott Detrow and Tamara Keith for welcoming us into their studio and sharing their insights with us about politics and Star Wars. It was a real blast and we hope you enjoy the conversation.

EP XVI: Star Wars Goes To Washington

Welcome to the 16th episode of Beltway Banthas! We had the privilege of visiting Richmond, VA for Virginia Comic Con, to do a panel titled “Star Wars Goes to Washington” So we captured the live audio to give you a glimpse inside the panel.

Star Wars Goes To Washington is really the crux of this podcast. How has politics and government been impacted by Star Wars? Each generation of Star Wars interacts with the politics of its day in different ways, some that are subtle and some that are the opposite. From Reagan to Obama, election 1980 to election 2016.

Enjoy!
