Ep 33- Talking about the Original Trilogy with some original fans

May the 4th be with you! In honor of Star Wars week, we are talking about the original trilogy. Shayna and Kathy are joined by Shayna's mom, Cindy, and Kathy's husband, Matt- both of whom watched A New Hope in the theater way back in 1977. We talk about what a game changer the movies were at the time, why they resonate with so many people, and how our lives have been impacted. We cover things like A Hero with a Thousand Faces, how important Princess Leia was for girls and women, and why villains are so cool.


Kathy talked about a painting she recreated with her daughter. You should check out the painting as well as other art by Catherine Moore here- Tea & Canvas
