Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

Jan 11, 2017

2016 was a rough year for all of us, even here are the RevCast/RevNews. Deanna, Tegan and Gary have been away for a while, but now they're back! Although we wish it was under better circumstances.

First up, our crew covers why they've been away, and then our hosts for this RevNews are joined by KC Ryan and Sue K for a look back at the life and career of the one and only Carrie Fisher, who we lost at the end of the year.

Listen in as they discuss crying all the tears; what Leia means to them; Carrie's fights against agism, the Hollywood system, & for mental health awareness; her carrer as a writer and script doctor; our love of her dog's twitter; her interactions with the fans; how we should have had her around longer; how the modern era of the internet and Twitter let us know our icons better, but also means their loss hurts more; the impact of Star Wars on pop culture & their lives; Carrie's work outside Star Wars & how she'll be memorialized; the infamous bikini;how we should share our stories & love with the people who inspire us before they're gone, and our our favorite Carrie Leia memories.

The RevolutionSF RevNews theme music is "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets. Find them at Thickets.net.
