This week Griffin and David delve into the character we all know and love: Jar Jar Binks. How does an outcast of the Gungan society go on to save his people? The answer might just be tasteless comedy and a dash of racism. Would Jar Jar Binks' character be less offensive if developed as a noble savage rather than a goof that exclusively speaks in broken english? Did George Lucas really think he was gonna get away with it? Remember Jar Jar is for kids, right? Plus, Griffin talks merch where he spotlights the Jar Jar Binks Pez "handler" and why Gragra is more deserving of our attention. And dear listeners, if you have your own theory on what the Phantom Menace is really about, please send an audio recording explanation (1-3 mins) to [email protected] and it might get played on an upcoming episode!
