StarWTF!? Episode 4: The Podrace

In this episode, we discuss everyone's favorite scene from everyone's favorite movie. It's the Boonta Eve Classic, otherwise known as the Podrace from Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. 

We learn all about the aliens. Did you know that some of them finished the race? We thought they all died! And how about Ben Quadinaros? What's his deal? There's quite a bit going on in this 4 hour long scene and it led to our longest episode yet, clocking in at a whopping 39 minutes.

Doctor Who - Death in Heaven
