    The Clone Wars will always have a special place in my heart, but I’m warming up to Rebel now. Season 2 is getting so good! It’s a shame it’s not on Netflix, yet, but I have bought the DVDs of seasons 1 and 2. Glad you’re a fan 😀

    Omg, I didn’t know you had a podcast! Or maybe I did but forgot???
    This is so cool. I don’t listen too many podcasts, but would like to have some in the background while I work. I’ve realized that I can’t listen to audiobooks while I work, but perhaps I will try podcasts.
    Is there a place where you keep them all together?
