                                  This week, the Imperials interfere with the Wookiee Radio signal, cutting our broadcast short.  Before getting cut off, the Smugglers Three manage to discuss a few topics, such as an article discussing why Star Wars is not an true Sci-Fi flick, and fake facts that fans assume are true.  The gang begins to talk about some of the greatest Star Wars items in the galaxy when the signal is lost.

                                  Does this spell doom for the Smugglers Three?   Or will they be able to revive their broadcast despite Imperial interference?  Only time will tell.
