Saving Private Ryan

DSW host Chris Mich and creator Michael Zolomij delve into the connection between Steven Spielberg’s award-winning, epic war film Saving Private Ryan and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, the final Star Wars film directed by Speilberg’s good friend George Lucas.

Also in this episode, we urge listeners to show your appreciation of our veterans by giving to one or more of the following charities:

Wounded Warrior Project.
Honor their sacrifice. Support a Wounded Warrior today.

C. Michael Steadman Golf Tournament.
Providing scholarship funds for the Pennsylvania Army National Guard Unit.

Military Order Purple Heart Foundation.
Donate used clothing and household items to help support vets.

Disabled American Veterans
Better Lives for America's Disabled Veterans.

Finally, we need to send out a very special thanks to Teddie Films for bringing some levity to this episode with their hysterical spoof of Gotye’s “Somebody that I Used to Know” cleverly parodied as “The Star Wars I Used to Know.”  Please subscribe to their YouTube channel at:

As always, thanks for listening!

  4. An update: Our friends at a certain video posting site INSIST we stole music from GLEE for the Saving Private Ryan - which we DID NOT. That said, I'm tiring of the hassle of it all and removed it from that site. This DSW episode is exclusively on SoundCloud and will remain there till the Digging Star Wars experiment is complete. Thanks for your understanding.
