- About Us
Tatooine Sons is a positive, family-friendly podcast hosted by David Jesse and his two teenage sons, Sam (19) and Nathan (15). We believe that pop-culture is the mythology of this generation. There is a story written on our souls. These myths speak to that story.Star Wars | MCU | DC | Comicbooks | LOTR | Cobra KaiTatooine Sons was launched in December 2017 at "Tatooine Sons: A Star Wars Podcast." In December of 2018, Nathan (one of the hosts who at the time was 12 years old) asked Rian Johnson, the writer/director of "The Last Jedi": "What is the name of the porg on the Millennium Falcon?"Rian Johnson responded: "What do YOU think his name is?" When Nathan answered, "Maybe Terbus?" no one really believed the character would become official. But after a year and a half #MakeTerbusCanon campaign on social media, the character was officially named in the all-ages comic book series "Star Wars Adventures," issues 27-29.

We love how pop-culture helps us see that there is something bigger in the world. We discuss Star Wars, the MCU, DC, comicbooks, the Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Cobra Kai and pretty much anything else pop-culture related through the lens of modern mythology and the "greater story" we believe this mythology points toward.
