As the Holiday season approaches, the crew of Young Nostalgia continues to bring top content to their listeners. Joined this time by Kyle, the trio attend the recently released Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Conflicted by the film’s theatrical brilliance opposite arguable shortcomings, the three discuss their own varying opinions regarding current Star Wars as well as the future of the franchise.
