I’m a husband, web programmer, and big time Star Wars fan. I’m addicted to social media and I enjoy reading sci-fi, watching action movies, listening to country music, and playing the occasional video game.

    That episode was so good I actually listened to it twice. You guys did a fantastic job and definitely had me fooled. At first I felt kind of dumb for not knowing who this guy was. You guys clearly put a lot of time into coming up with a back-story that was funny but just believable enough. Great job!
