Holiday Special: Earthquake / Independence Day Star Wars 2019

The 6:05 Superpodcast was celebrating America’s birthday with another edition of Star Wars, when the show was deemed “awful” by The Great Brian Last!  A make-up edition of Star Wars was quickly planned and things got seismic when the Southern California earthquake hit in the middle of the recording.  It’s the most shaky Star Wars in 6:05 history!
