The Course of the Force is a charity run that benefits the Make-a-Wish Foundation; the relay race begins at the Skywalker Ranch outside San Francisco and ends in San Diego, just in time for Comic Con. Alas, this year, the lightsaber used as the relay's baton has been stolen, but thank the maker Matt Mara, Chris Hardwick and other Nerdists are on the case.

This is only the first chapter, whose highlights include a special look at Hardwick's private life and R2-D2's killer Borat impression; subsequent episodes will be released on Tuesdays. You can find out more info on the Course of the Force here — some of the legs are full, but you're also welcome to find out more about donating to Make-a-Wish here.
