Glup Shittos: The Obscure Characters Somebody Loves
Star Wars fans love their Glup Shittos. But what does that term mean? Riki and Sarah join me to talk about Glup Shittos, why they are such a great part of fandom, and some of our listener’s favorites!
As a lifelong Star Wars fan — no, really, his parents took him to a Star Wars film as a 2-year-old — Riki loves the technical side of things. He’s spent more time looking at starship specs than he would like to admit and obsesses over the lack of safety standards on Imperial ship designs. Where are the guardrails?! Find his musings on Twitter @mtgRikipedia.
Sarah grew up in the wilds of Saskatchewan, Canada, where she worked at a local comic book store running Magic: the Gathering tournaments and promoting all things nerdy. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California, where she is pursuing her MFA in studio art, and thinks the ideal day out involves dressing up like a background character in Star Wars, hanging out in the Star Wars section of Disneyland, and pretending she’s a space pirate.
