#PodStories: From Star Wars Admirer to Facebook Fandom

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a young boy fell in love with a modern-day myth. Now, he is passing that love for Star Wars along to his two sons.

David Jesse’s first Star Wars memories were watching A New Hope on HBO; playing with 3.75” Luke Skywalker and Han Solo figures in his backyard; making lightsabers out of paper towel rolls, and picking his jaw up off the floor when he was given a Tie Fighter for Christmas. His family wasn’t the movie-going type, so he never had the privilege of seeing the Original Trilogy in theaters, but he definitely shook with disbelief when Darth Vader revealed that he was Luke’s father in the Empire Strikes Back.

Spreaker Announces New Bloom Program Podcast

We’re thrilled to announce that Popcorn Psychology has officially joined Bloom, our podcast content development program. We launched the program back in August as a way to assist talented independent podcasters who could benefit from the production support of a larger team (like Spreaker!). 

Popcorn Psychology is a podcast hosted by three licensed therapists – Ben Stover, M.A., L.C.P.C., Hannah Espinoza, M.A., L.C.P.C., and Brittney Brownfield, M.S., L.C.P.C. – who spend each episode breaking down and analyzing popular movies and characters from the perspectives of a child, individual, and marriage and family therapist. With the goal of decreasing the stigma of mental health and therapy, the podcast launched in April 2018 as a result of the hosts being shocked by the public’s reaction to “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
