00:32:40. Bardic Question of the Week
BQotW #179: Do you like the Bardic Question of the Week? How can we boost the signal?

BQotW #180: Do you have any 'fun', epic or other stories of moving? Do you have any moving tips? Bonus Question: What phone should Scott get to replace his POS Windows Phone?

00:44:12. Casey Lee.  Another Star Wars related question. What do the Bards like better Extended Universe, or "New Cannon"?

00:49:22. Rob MacLennan.  While working on a 'costume' which will likely survive for several hundred years, the incongruity of not being able to find a pair of shoes that will last longer than 4 months struck me. Is our technology the issue, or is the the people who use it?

00:54:52. Casey Lee.  A note from last weeks podcast. The A-Wing fighter does not use an astromech as it has a dedicated slave circuit for tandem jumps with capital ships, and a nav computer. The frame being too small for an astromech was seen as a design flaw corrected with the E-Wing fighter during the formation of The New Republic. As this is EU and no longer cannon, this is up to discussion if that should be taken into account.

00:59:00. Matthew Hunt. Who do you think would win in a Wonder Woman V Thor battle?
