As an avid Star Wars fan and a frequent Geekbox & Co. podcast listener, I had to make this account just to vent my frustration at the travesty of misinformation in this podcast.
This is in regards to the claim that what Han Solo said about the Kessel run was wrong. It is full well known that a "parsec" is a measurement of space and not time, though this is a common mistake even now among the nerdom. But what Han was referring to was that basically he found a shortcut through this certain area only he is good enough (or crazy enough) to use.
In deeper explanation, the Kessel run is a smuggling route that goes to a mining facility which mines spice (drugs). The problem is that this route takes the traveler past a cluster of black holes and through an asteroid field without any ship sensors (the area interferes with them). So the safer routes take longer, since they stray away from danger. But best routes are faster and more dangerous, going closer to the black holes to shave off time and distance. So what Han is saying, is that he took a super short route, flying super close to the black holes, which makes him a damn good pilot.
