In honor of the Obi-Wan Kenobi season finale, Dave, Joanna, and Neil are celebrating one of the most important figures in Star Wars, John Williams, by debating his best theme. First, they discuss their thoughts on Obi-Wan Kenobi so far (4:13). Then, they begin the debate by singing their picks for Williams’s best theme (16:13), before hearing some of the listeners best attempts at singing their favorites (34:02).
