Speaks Yoda Does

In this week's episode (listen now), we celebrate the sayings of the great Jedi master Yoda from the Star Wars universe.  (Ed is such a Star Wars fan that he once featured in the newspaper for being the first person in line to see one of the newly released films! Of course, I barely escaped similar notoriety when pandas arrived at the local zoo, thanks to pandamaniac sister!!)

Yoda is, of course, wise in addition to being small, green and powerful. However, his wisdom is delivered with a distinctive syntax that gets the words out of order. So, when TomTom, the navigation company, decided to offer Yoda (voiced by Frank Oz), as one of its celebrity voices, it offered a perfect opportunity to create a hilarious "behind the scenes" video of the taping, which you can watch below.
