We're back! After a short hiatus imposed by our increasingly busy podcasting schedules and the sheer length of time it took to prepare and produce this episode, Mike and I haves something really special for you.
We've had collecting on our topic list since we started this thing and we wanted to talk about it with an interesting angle. Further, we've been playing with the format just to show our range. Well, for Mike to boost his portfolio. Mr. Fancy Pants landed a gig as the East Coast Editor for Headgum! Anyway, this one is more in line with what you'd hear on Radiolab or an NPR program. Listen through the first half of the show and you'll see what I mean.
The both of us talk heavily about our childhoods and our collections. Things got sort of deep in certain moments in a way that can only occur when you're discussing the toys and methods of play that made the foundation for such a time.
In the eleventh episode of Bantha Fodder, Mike and Jacob discuss collecting, a phenomenon that goes hand in hand with the pervasiveness of the Star Wars franchise. Mike and Jacob have very different perspective on things, so Mike brings in a friend to balance it all out and provide a unique look into a New York City collector that has a big collection, but a tiny place.
