Hey there, Rebel rousers! It’s a special edition of Star Wars 7×7 today, in honor of the 75th episode. Quizmaster Joey Voivod and Scorekeeper Declan Voivod join me today for the Star Wars Lightning Trivia Challenge.
For the podcast audio, the rules are simple. I let Joey read the whole question before I answer, so you have a fair shot to guess while listening at home. (Or in the car, or at the gym, or on the Kessel Run, or wherever.) And I try to answer as many questions as I can in five minutes.
Here are the 39 questions we got through – listen to the podcast for the answers, and to compare your results with mine!
