Episode CXLIX: Ben Kenobi

Recorded 1/9/16

Amy, Bryan, and Mike gather to discuss the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi. From his humble beginnings as a padawan to a mentor who made the ultimate sacrifice, what makes Ben Kenobi one of our favorite characters? And, although he’s not seen and barely heard in The Force Awakens, what effect did his legacy have on the new film. It’s a deep conversation and we hope you enjoy it.

  1. Really great podcast this week guys (in the gender neutral way)! I forget who exactly said it, but one of my favorite Obi-Wan moments is when he dropped in on Grevious with that “Well hello!”

  2. Hi there,
    I recently discovered your podcast and I love it.
    I just have a comment about the force awakens. At the end of the film I thought it made more sense if Leia went herself to reach Luke. I wonder what made Leia decide that Rey was the one should go and find him. I guess the reasons could be related to some or all of the following assumptions:

    1. What Leia have learned about Rey from Finn, Han, Chewie, BB-8(?) (this implies that Leia knows about Rey’s confrontation with Kylo Ren and Rey’s affection for Han)

    2. Leia senses and knows that Rey is strong with the force. Sending Rey to Luke will give him hope that there is ‘still’ people that are both strong with the force and kind.

    3. Rey has Luke’s lightsaber. She offered herself to go and find Luke motivated by her confrontation with Kylo Ren where she had a glimpse of what she is capable to do with the force as her ally

    But, I still think that, following the same line of argument Leia used to convince Han to go after their son: “but you are his father” (family), would not make more sense for her, as Luke’s sister, to go herself and convince him to come back? Unless Leia is sending Rey because she is not an stranger she is also family, she is Luke’s Daughter! (or a relative :P )

    It might be possible there was a conversation between Rey and Leia they did not show us. Maybe on that conversation Rey tells Leia she feel she has to go herself to find Luke and Leia says of course you do you are her daughter you silly billy or a conversation where Leia tells Rey she has to go because she is Luke’s daughter and Rey says ahhhh! that’s why I feel so wired about this…Either way not very cinematic though, better to leave it for the next episode and have Luke himself to tell her or, less likely, show a flashback showing the conversation between Leia and Rey.

    Or and more probable, all the above is bs… but fun


  3. OH MY GOSH! *Hugs you all cyberly* It is soooooo great to find a podcast that has some of us, er…. more mature (?) fans! While I love other SW podcasts, I saw the original Star Wars in 1977. This was my first episode listening to Full of Sith and I’m now a die-hard listener. Thank you so much for such a great podcast! May the Force be with you!
