One of my favorite podcasts is Star Wars Minute. For those of you who haven’t heard of it, it is a podcast that watches a single minute of a Star Wars movie and then discusses it. They started with Star Wars, continued throughout the original trilogy and just finished the Phantom Menace this past spring.
I know, it sounds like a ridiculous premise. Isn’t watching and discussing single minute of Star Wars a little too obsessive and nerdy? Maybe. But what the show brings is a lot of humor and silliness to break up the nerd talk. Not that nerd talk is a bad thing. I devote several hours a week to nerd talk. More if I get the chance.
I’ve been listening to this show for a little over two years now. And the whole time I’ve been thinking, like many of the listeners most likely, how much I’d like to be on the show. The problem is I’m don’t have the internet cred. Sure, I write my little blog and have a book underneath my name, working on a sequel. But in the grand scheme of things I am pretty small potatoes.
Still, everyone needs a goal. Currently my goal, beside obviously becoming a widely read author, is to somehow get on the show. I don’t know how, but I got to try. I’m not sure how to get noticed, (thus the call out here) but I’m going to keep doing my best to write and produce my own podcasts and make them quality. That’s got to count for something.
In the meantime, if you like Star Wars and you like humor, check out Star Wars Minute.
