Things get dark on this week’s installment of Tosche Station Radio as Nanci and Brian delve into the Dark Side and discuss their favorite villains in science fiction and fantasy.
To kick off the show in Fixer’s Flash, Nanci plugs the article she wrote for Valentine’s Day, a soul-crushing look into romances in Star Wars that ended in utter tragedy. Can you feel the love tonight or is that just us? Brian talks briefly about an article he wrote over at Roqoo Depot that skips the romantic subplot all together and delves into the relationships that really matter: bromances*. Speaking of Roqoo Depot, the hosts congratulate them on their one-year anniversary and commend them for somehow managing to survive giving Brian a writing gig.
