Star Wars

Darth Vader, Storm Troopers, Tusken Raiders, if you are a nerd for star wars you know exactly who I'm talking about. The 501st Legion is a worldwide organization dedicated to the pinpoint accuracy of not only the look of the bad guys of stars but also the behavior. I have two very special guest, Tom Rosy and Mike Determen, both apart of the Midwest Garrison of the 501st, here today to discuss a new documentary they are producing about the 501st, as well as share stories about their time served. Join us on this weeks Region Nerd Alert.

The new trailer for the final installment of Disney’s Star Wars Trilogy is here and that makes us here at Region Nerd Alert break out the old jedi texts and compare the new trilogy to the previous two, where the new one shines, and where it falls to the dark side in terms of cinematic blunders. This is Region Nerd Alert.

On this week's Shelf Discovery, Kristin takes a look back at the troubled, tragic, and wildly entertaining life of Carrie Fisher with the audio edition of Wishful Drinking.
