This week on The Gralien Report, we celebrate the holidays with our special Christmas episode of the program, as Micah discusses the age-old family tradition of heading out to the theaters to see Star Wars Films. Many families are enjoying Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this year, and in the spirit of the holidays, we travel back in time to look at that utterly weird CBS Christmas special that featured the Star Wars cast way back in 1978. Despite the popularity of Star Wars, there was something else trending online early this week… involving the buzz that was generated by the release of the new teaser trailer for next year’s Blade Runner sequel. The big question, however, that has remained on the minds of fans for decades now is… was Deckard one of them? 

We also take a look at a number of the most unusual Christmas traditions from around the world, which range from the weird, to the creepy. Then, our final holiday stocking stuffer for the evening is a special visit from our friend Marie D. Jones, author of books like 11:11: The Time Prompt Phenomenon and Destiny vs Choice. We discuss everything from archetypes that appear in films like the Star Wars series, to déjà vu, and time travel.

  1. Another Pop icon George Michael dies Christmas Day. How ironic and sad 🙁 Sorry this is not related to this post but you’ve previously mentioned Bowie And Prince on your podcast. Thank you.

  2. Listening to you now you are really wrong. I can’t believe how wrong you are and how many mistakes you make. Grow up and get a girl.

  3. This was an amazing holiday episode the best of any podcast I’ve heard this year. Cheers I watched Star Wars holiday special 1st time ever twice! This show seemed catered especially 4 me I adore archetype theory and star wars. The thing that really rang true with me was a realization that I came to studying the life and works of William S Burroughs who saw meaning in everything. This sounds ridiculous at first mention but when you go deep you realize people like Einstein and Tesla are only seeing what is there and it says a lot about the state of our being reflecting our cultural indoctrination of meaninglessness that we don’t see meaning in things and so we don’t see what is right in front of our face. and so it is perceived a super human ability seeing what is truly there the mechanisms the meaning. This show gave me a further comprehension into my study and theory of the observer phenomenon. The fact that as observers who are blind to the self we depend on the world to interpret the self for us and this is the fundamental reason I believe truth is the highest virtue. Thank you Micah.
