THE CONVERSATION HAT PODCAST – SE3EP13, ft Ben's Dad

Ben's Dad makes his seasonal return to The Conversation Hat Podcast to chat about lightsabers, crappy job interview questions and much more besides. Ben's Dad doesn't want to plug anything, he just likes having a chat.

====================================

SHOW NOTES

As briefly touched-upon in the podcast, lightsabers in the Star Wars franchise are powered by Kyber Crystals which also determine the colour of the blade. The crystals are harvested by young Jedi and the process turns the crystal to a specific colour. Sith and Dark-Side users, rather than harvesting the crystals in the "proper" way, will dominate them which turns the colour to red - hence all the evil dudes having red swords. You can read more about Kyber Crystals and much, much more Star Wars lore, (there's lots), over on Wookiepedia.

For music fans, we're updating the way our Patreon rewards work slightly - specifically the free music downloads. Anyone and everyone will now be able to listen to music from the show, (on SoundCloud, for example), but downloads will remain a patron-only reward. Log in to Patreon to learn how to access your downloads.

SHOW NOTES

Here's some stuff we talked about on the show, along with further reading. Y'know, podcast homework.

As mentioned in the show, Liam's foodie picks for Edinburgh include Wings on Old Fishmarket Close, (guess what they sell), and Viva Mexico on Cockburn St - if you don't get the haggis nachos then your existence is frankly pointless.

The UK Business Insider lists the 20 most generous rich people in the world, including Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.

"Woman Comic" actually has a name - Rachel Parris is an exceptionally funny comedian, who gained notoriety on Nish Kumar's The Mash Report. She has also appeared on Plebs, Murder in Successville and The IT Crowd, (amongst many other titles).
