The Expanded Fandomverse - Episode 007 - "Another Show In The Bucket" - with Mark Dermul


This week we are happy to welcome Mark Dermul to the show.  You may not know Mark’s name, but I’m willing to bet you’ve heard of his work.  Last year, Mark and a team of friends went to Tunisia to save the Lars Homestead.  They raised money online, struggled through the heat, and rebuilt the iconic domed boyhood home of Luke Skywalker.  Mark tells us the full story, from the joke that inspired the project, how they raised the funds, to dealing with a foreign government in the midst of a revolution, to the actual physical labor in 120 degree heat.

Dan white is back this week with “Chewing On The Power Cables”.  This week Dan shares his thoughts on the topic of merchandising, a major aspect of the Star Wars experience.

We also cover this weeks top news stories, and give you one last reminder about the latest Jason’s Jawa Giveaway (Utinni!).  You only have 4 days left to qualify for an awesome kid-friendly gift pack!  Just leave us a review on iTunes, and your name will be put into our drawing.  If you are not sure how to leave a review on iTunes, please click these link for simple, step by step instructions!

Scum & Villainy: The Expanded Fandomverse After Show - Episode 002 - "The Must Be What Star Wars Is Like Overseas"


This weekend, after Jason and I finished recording, we had 30 minutes to kill before we were scheduled to interview our next guest. So, what did we do with all that free time? We babbled out way through another episode of Scum & Villainy!

We cover our love of the Radio Dramas, the fact that kids today don’t know the fun that can be had with a cassette tape, and I once again regret calling the show The Expanded Fandomverse. Enjoy!

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.


Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

The Expanded Fandomverse - Episode 006 - "Eat Fresh!" - with Nick Diak


New Episode is up!

Thank you everyone for your patience this week. This episode is a day late due to real life obligations and responsibilities. I am happy to say that I think this episode is well worth the wait!

Our guest this week is Nicholas Diak, aka Nick the Lumberjack. Nick is an artist, a SW fan and a guy who is using his love of Star Wars to give back to the world. Nick came to our attention through his current project called “Sketch Wars”, where he is posting a sketch a day of a Star Wars character, counting down until Episode VII comes out. Nick does a lot more then just his sketches. You really should take the time check out his other projects as well. I bet you will find something very enjoyable.

As we posted yesterday, we have expanded this round of Jason’s Jawa Giveaway (Utinni!) Along with the plush Darth Goofy toy, we will will also be including eighteen (yes, 18!) children’s Star Wars books. To win, all you need to do is leave us a review on iTunes. For instructions on how to do this, click and/or for instructions. —- Our show can be found on iTunes at

Important Updates!


First off, I am sorry to say say that we will be not releasing a new episode today.  Typically, we publish new shows on Tuesdays.  Sadly, real life obligations and responsibilities have kept me from completing this weeks show on time.   

I sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, but, I am happy to say that we will be up and running again shortly, and you can expect this weeks episode tomorrow!  So please, check back for that tomorrow!

Secondly, we are in the middle of round 2 of Jason’s Jawa Giveaway (Utinni!)! We started this new contest two weeks ago, and we have decided to extend it for two more weeks! So, there is still time for you to get into the action!

As you may know, this time around we are giving away a “Darth Goofy” plush toy.  Well, we’ve added to the prize package to now include a selection of children’s Star Wars books. This toy and these books may not be your type of thing, but they would make an excellent gift for any young Star Wars fan in your life.

To win, all you need to do is go to iTunes and leave us a review. Tell us what you think of the show, and if you do, we will put your name in the hat for our random drawing. On September 20th, we will pick one lucky name from the Stormtrooper helmet and will then send that person a box of children’s Star Wars goodies for free!

If you are not sure how to leave a review on iTunes, please click these link for simple, step by step instructions!


Good luck to you!  Please share with your friends!  We look forward to filling that helmet with lots and lots if names!

See you soon!

The Expanded Fandomverse: EPISODE 005 - HALEY SKYWALKER or "Tim Is the Daughter of a Young Girl"


With Jason’s recent fortieth birthday, we are now both officially old men.  We have both been Star Wars fans for over three decades now.  We don’t really remember a time before Star Wars.  So, we decided to seek out a new fan, a younger fan, to find out what the kids today think about that galaxy far, far away.

And where do the younglings these days go to express themselves?  To YouTube!  This is where Jason found this weeks guest, Haley Skipper, aka HaleySkywalker2.  Haley is a young lady who loves to post about her love of Star Wars, has started a podcast of her own, and is active on the fan site TheForcebook.

This week, we also have a reminder about the second of Jason’s Jawa Giveaways (Utinni!).  To win the plush Darth Goofy toy from Disney World, all you need to do is go to our iTunes page and leave a positive review.  If you post a few sentence about our show on iTunes, we will put your name in the old Stormtrooper bucket.  Then, we will pull one lucky name from the helmet as our winner.  Hurry though, time is ticking.  You have until September 6th at midnight.

Also this week, Mr. Dan White is back with “Chewing the Power Cables with Dan White”.  This time around, Dan tells us a what he thinks about life and death as it relates to Star Wars fandom.

And finally, this week we try something new!  When recording the show, Jason and I have found it is sooooo easy to just start babbling on and on about Star Wars.  It’s fun to do, but isn’t necessarily the best thing for the show.  So, we are starting an after show where we can allow ourselves to babble about Star Wars.  We are calling it “Scum & Villainy: The Expanded Fandomverse After Show”.  Its just an hour of us, along with Dan White, sitting back, relaxing, and riffing on whatever SW subject crosses our minds. 

Please be aware, that while we try very hard to keep The Expanded Fandomverse rated PG, on the after show, the gloves come off, and no topic is off the table.  So, if your sensitive to certain topics and adult words, please consider yourself warned!

(Please note, that the Scum & Villainy after show will not be placed in our RSS feed, it is not actually attached to the regular show, and it is not truly after the show.  It can only be found on our website.  Thank you.)

And finally, an apology…  When we record the show, I use and external microphone that is plugged into my computer.  This microphone has an on/off switch.  Well, guess what I forgot to turn on this week?  Yup!  Luckily, the internal mic on my computer picked up my voice for the recording.  So, the audio quality is a little week this week, but please rest assured, I have learned my lesson, and the mic will be back on again next week!  Thanks for your patience.

PS - The link for the after show is…

The Expanded Fandomverse - Episode 004 - "Jason's Soul Mate" with Stephen Greenwood


This week we continue our talks with the co-founders of Wookieepedia.  Jason has a conversation with Steven Greenwood about what life is like on Wookieepedia today.  As a note, we had to record the conversation over the phone, instead of via Skype.  Please forgive the slightly lower sound quality.

This week, we also bring back Jason’s Jawa Giveaway (Utinni!) for another round.  This time you can win a 6 inch Darth Goofy plush toy from Disney World.  To win, all you need to do is leave us a positive review on iTunes.  That simple!  Leave a review, and we will put your name in hat for our next random drawing.  (listen to the show for more details) Good luck!

We also talk about Star Wars birthdays (Happy Birthday to Jason who turns 40 today!), video games, we recap the rumors we talked about last week, and Jason’s crush on Jamie King!  And, we have a phone number you can use to leave us voice mails!  Dial 205-383-3663 and leave a message.  If it’s good, we just may use it on the show!

Rumors & Potential Spoilers: What do you think?

On last weeks episode, Jason and I discuss just how far we should go when discussing rumors and potential spoilers on the show. Jason is all for discussing every little details out there. I want to hold back a bit. I will look at the photos floating around, but I don’t want to talk about plot and characters. 

So, we have left it up to you, the listener, to decided. What is your opinion? Please take our poll and leave a comment to tell us what you think. Thank you very much!
