EPISODE 016 - David Everett, founder of the R2-D2 Builders Club

This week we welcome Mr. David Everett to the show.  Dave is the founder of the R2-D2 Builders Club.  If you've ever seen an R2 unit in person, then more than likely the builder of that droid is a member of this group.  We talk to Dave about the origin of the club, just what goes into building your own droid, his time on the set of Episode II, and the clubs connection to The Force Awakens.

We do have to apologize though, our Skype connection with Dave was not the best.  We've done what we can to remove the hiss and static from the conversation, but unfortunately, there are a few times were the volume on Dave's end of the discuss drops out.  The conversation is worth a listen though, and we are happy to share it, but we just wanted to warn you in advance.

In this weeks show we also discuss the latest rumors about the upcoming trailer (no spoilers though!), we wonder what we would do if we found bits of Episode VII just laying in the street, and Jason DOUBLES the prize package for this months Jason's Jawa Giveaway!  (Utini!)

  1. Thanks for doing the interview, unfortunately the quality was so low I just gave up on it. I'd really like to hear what he has to say. Any chance of doing it again?

  2. Okay, to anyone who read my above comment, I gave it another try and it got a little better. I was able to listen through the whole thing.

    Thanks again!
