In this episode, we investigate The Book of Boba Fett and discuss how this new Star Wars series pulls many of its themes and motifs directly from old Hollywood Westerns, including a few regressive tropes popular in that genre. Friend of the show and professor of clinical law, Carl Williams, joins the conversation.
