It's the time of year when all the TV advertising gets a bit better because brands have blown a ton of money on Super Bowl ads and they're trying to get their money's worth. We break down our favourite and not-so-favourite of this year's crop.
In our 100th Star Wars Nerds episode, we speak with Australian comedian Steele Saunders about his career as a Star Wars podcaster.
Among many other things, Steele discusses his ongoing fight against the dark side of fandom on Twitter, how he coined a Star Wars phrase about Snoke, and his awesome idea to help Lucasfilm tighten up the new Star Wars movies.
