Blank Check with Griffin and David Wiki

Romance is episode 16 and the fourth part of the Attack of the Podcast miniseries, about the film Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. Posted 12 Jul 2015.


Joining Griffin and David this week is friend of the show Rachel Lang, to discuss the steamy romance that develops between Anakin and Padmé. Playing a major part in a film that's about a war happening in space, the scenes of going out to eat at a restaurant, innocently rolling around in fields, and a secret wedding are this episode’s focus.

Together, they look at why the Jedi can’t have sex, writing fan fiction, Anakin’s feelings towards sand, and Rachel recounts meeting composer John Williams after a concert while he was very sweaty.

David has called this episode one of his favorites. Rachel was just the second guest ever on the podcast, and what better guest to have to get accustomed to the different dynamic? She has an comfortable chemistry on-mic with #TheTwoFriends that makes for good listening.
