Welcome to But Why Tho? the podcast, where we talk about the parts of popular culture that people say matter and ask the question but why tho?

 

Kate, Adrian, and Matt answer this question with through passion, geekdom, history and even some scholarship.

We all love popular culture, but few of us use it to do good in the world. In this Missions that Matters episode, we got to sit down with a member of the Red Sands Patrol, the El Paso, TX squad of the global organization: The 501st Legion. Dressed as Stormtroopers, Tie Pilots, Vader, and more, the 501st Legion uses their love of Star Wars to give back to their communities and bring the community together through their love of the franchise. Yes, they even work with rebel scum. 

This interview is reflective of the West Texas Squadron of Star Garrison and specifically the activities and events of the El Paso chapter.
