Marion Ravenwood, Indiana Jones and the Blurays!

Hey there Travelers of the Jundland Wastes! I know it has been a while since our last update. The spring and summer around the headquarters of the TJW Podcast has been mighty busy. But we do have shows coming up so stay tuned!

Without a doubt, everyone is in full comic con mode with the summer season. And to add to it, Star Wars Celebration 6 will be taking place this August in Orlando, FL. It doesn't look like the TJW Podcast will be in Orlando for this event. But we are hopeful for Star Wars Celebration 7 in another 2 or 3 years.

And while it might seem a little early to be looking towards autumn, I have to say that I can't wait until the cool winds of the fall are upon us. Why? Because the Indiana Jones saga will be released on Bluray this fall! I am really excited about getting this set. I don't think it's possible to be a fan of Star Wars and not be a fan of the Indiana Jones franchise as well.  I have been catching up on some great Indiana Jones expanded universe titles as well the classic Marvel comics The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones.

But my most recent Indiana Jones collectible to hit my shelf recently was an autographed photo of Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood signed by actress Karen Allen (AKA Marion Ravenwood). I love this classic shot of her and Harrison Ford from Raiders of the Lost Ark. (All I need to track down Harrison Ford for his autograph and my photo will be complete :) See the photo at the top of the post.
 
It actually got me thinking which couple I like better: Han Solo and Princess Leia or Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood. Both couples have great banter and I just love listening to the dialogue with these characters.

Stay tuned for more Star Wars Expanded Universe conversation to hit the podcast very soon! And let us know what you are thinking about these days! Email us at: jundlandwastespodcast@gmail.com.

Stay safe on the wastes!
