MEET THE FRIENDS
BRAD — Creator, Host, Executive Producer
When he's not screaming into the void about Star Wars, Brad spends his nights eating never-ending pasta bowls and wondering why his stomach hurts immediately after. Or reading a nice book.
SARAH — Cohost, Blog Writer & Editor
When Sarah’s not talking about Star Wars (it happens!), she’s probably talking about politics, both of which are equally annoying subjects to outsiders. Sarah considers herself to be THE Friend of the Force.
