Ben Lindbergh (of Effectively Wild and FiveThirtyEight) joins BttP editor Ken Maeda to talk about all things Star Wars, including his take on The Force Awakens, and growing up a fan of the series. After some talk about his sportswriting, spoilers start at about 12 minutes in. (If you just can’t get enough Star Wars, look for our BttP roundtable episode.)
