EVERYTHING You Need To Know About Obi-Wan Kenobi Before Tomorrow's Premiere Of The New Disney+ Show...Obi-Wan Kenobi


That's right, Bob Fox and I have taken the basement back to a galaxy far, far away to break down all things Obi-Wan Kenobi before next Friday's debut of the Disney+ show...Obi-Wan Kenobi. Damn that's weird to write out even though originality has never been the strong suit of a series that constantly takes place on the same desert planet with two suns despite there being a literal galaxy worth of places to choose from.

Anyway, today's pod has something for everybody since there is a whole helluva lot more to Obi-Wan's arc outside of three disappointing prequel movies and Darth Vader turning him into air. There are important stories and characters from the Clone Wars, Rebels, and comics that could be included in the Disney+ show that casual Star Wars fans or even moderate Star Wars fans like myself may not know along with the requisite diehards like Robbie who can recite them from memory. 

So we get into Obi-Wan's early life, his love life, everything from the movies, and his VICIOUS rivalry with Darth Maul from outside the movies that I admittedly knew very little about other than him murdering Obi-Wan's master and in turn getting murdered(ish) by Obi-Wan.

As everyone knows, there is currently a war against podcasts here at Barstool. So if you enjoy listening to the show or just like Robbie or myself, please subscribe to the YouTube, Apple Podcast, and/or Spotify along with leaving a 5 star review or commenting on the show to tell the algorithm we don't suck so it'll convince the suits at Barstool that we don't suck. We already have Portnoy on our side, which helps. 

But now that he's back in Miami, Robbie and I are basically just C-3PO and R2D2 trying not to get shut down by the Third Floor Empire.
