It’s time for our yearly retrospective! We discuss how we did in predicting what we’d see in 2015, cover what we actually got, and then outline our hopes and dreams (and our community’s) in 2016. Our guest Ivilon also shares the wonderful story of talking to JJ Abrams about the music in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
