The Cosmic Shed

May the Fourth be with Mark O’Connell

May 4, 2019

It's Star Wars Day, May the 4th, and we're joined by Mark O'Connell, author of the wonderful book Watching Skies: Star Wars, Spielberg and Us.

Mark is, like our Ti, an author and the two of them sat down to discuss all things Star Wars and 80s nostalgia for this special Star Wars Day episode of the Cosmic Shed.

Pop on your Walkman, press play on the tape and go for a bike ride through the golden era of American cinema.
