And why is everybody so cagey about the idea of a "muse". We've got an awful lot to talk about!

Star WTF!? Episode 15: Moisture Farming

The episode you have been waiting your entire life for... it's MOISTURE FARMING!

Probably the most boring aspect of the Star Wars universe, yet we keep it moving right along at a brisk and swift pace. What is Moisture Farming? How do you do it? What do you do with the moisture? Why is Uncle Owen so miserable?

We also have special guest George Tagmire joining us for the first time, and definitely not the last.

Download Episode 15 - Moisture Farming
Moisture farms were often found on dry planets such as Tatooine or Ord Mantell, where the arid climate made water a scarce commodity. Moisture farmers maintained moisture vaporators to gather water for themselves as well as to sell to others. They also used the gathered moisture to irrigate crops, which were grown underground, sheltered from the hot sun (or suns, as is the case in the binary star system of Tatoo).
