The Rantcor Pit #62 - Decades: 40 Years of Star Wars Episode 1: A More Civilized Age

Note:  When originally recorded, this episode was mistakenly referred to as #61.

The audio podcast of The Rantcor Pit is back in time for the 40th anniversary month of Star Wars!  And what a month it is going to be, as your hosts have big plans for May

Cole "JediCole" Houston and Eddie Medina proudly present the first of four episodes in May discussing four decades of Star Wars, one decade at a time!  This series launches with the period from late May 1977 to late May 1987.  Effectively delving into the years from the premiere of the movie that would come to be called "A New Hope" straight through to "Return of the Jedi" and beyond. 

Step back in time with a combination of year-by-year research and personal remembrances from Cole and Eddie.  From the moment that Star Wars leapt at light speed from obscure sci-fi film with little studio support to a cultural phenomenon that spans the globe to this day through the year that changed everything for this iconic franchise for years to follow, a lot of history is covered in this nearly 90 minute opening chapter.
