Rocket Talk: A Podcast

Rocket Talk Episode 79: “Emo Kylo Ren” Creator Alexandra Petri

Welcome back to the Rocket Talk podcast! Emo Kylo Ren pays Justin a visit this week, in the form of the woman behind it all—Alexanda Petri! Together they discuss Star Wars, Jeopardy, internet culture, politics, and Petri’s book, A Field Guide to Awkward Silences.

Alexandra Petri is a Washington Post columnist and blogger, an International Pun Champion, a playwright, and a Jeopardy! loser, and she’s been on your TV a couple of times. She is also a congressman’s kid, if that interests you. When she remembers, she does stand-up comedy too. You can follow her on Twitter @petridishes, or keep up with her alter ego @KyloR3n.
