StarWTF!? Episode 43: Mandalorian Armor

Today we discuss Mandalorian Armor. It's more than just the Fett family's choice of clothing. It goes WAY BACK. More than 4000 years back. We look at the changes that were made over the years, improvements (such as protection from rapid beheadings), and the reason for choosing specific colored armor.

Other than that, we just talk about why it's so cool.


The most recognizable symbol of the Mandalorian culture, Mandalorian armor was a catch-all term for the sets of distinctive full-body armor worn by Mandalorian warriors and soldiers throughout galactic history. Known as beskar'gam in the Mandalorian language of Mando'a—a name which meant "iron skin" when translated into Basic—Mandalorian armor was central to the Mandalorian way of life, and the wearing of armor was one of the Resol'nare, the six tenets that defined the Mandalorian culture.

StarWTF!? Episode 41: Zabrak

Today we talk about a species that is pretty much Mike Tyson with horns. That's a little bit of a stretch, but on the surface Zabrak's are just humans with some horns and face tattoos. But is there more deep down? Are these an interesting species?

We take a look at it and find out a few interesting things about what makes them tick, where they came from and what happens when they breed with other species.




The Zabrak, also known as Iridonians when referring to the Zabrak who came from Iridonia, were a carnivorous Near-Human species native to Iridonia, a planet located in the Mid Rim known for its inhospitable terrain and fierce predatory life. They were a species known for having a fierce sense of self-determination and an equally dominant need for independence.
