Welcome back for another great show! This week Riley Blanton of The Star Wars Report and Mouse & Castle joins the show for a whirlwind of political chatter about a galaxy, far, far away. If you noticed the international controversy surrounding the NBA and their handling of political statements about the Hong Kong protests, this issue extends far beyond pro basketball. Disney actively makes some of the same calculations and accommodations for the Chinese Communist Party, as does every other American company operating there.

Riley Blanton and Stephen Kent mix it up on how Star Wars fares in China, the tumultuous Democratic primary and cable news debates. And to start the show, Riley gives Stephen his insights into how to best experience STAR WARS: Galaxy's Edge, the new theme park at Disney where you can live your own Star Wars story. Stephen is going to the park soon and Riley is *the* guy you need to talk to before planning your own visit.
