Impressive, most impressive.

A fantastic UK Star Wars podcast. Gary is the host of the excellent Big Blue Box Podcast (Doctor Who) so I knew the quality of this would be first class and I wasn’t disappointed. These guys really know Star Wars and the love just oozes out of them like a delicious cream pie. Very funny, very informative and highly recommended. Tater”s and carrots.

Thank you Gary and Mark 🙏🏼

I’ve always hoped there would be a good UK based Star Wars podcast and now my wish has come to be!

Gary and Mark are a really cool pair of guys who obviously have a lot of love for Star Wars and it really shows. At first, it was odd hearing Gary doing a different podcast without Adam (from his Doctor Who podcast - The Big Blue Box podcast), but I soon got used to this.

The shows are always informative and fun covering news, speculation and just chatting about the various geeky details of our favourite galaxy far far away.

Thank you guys for gracing my headphones and helping me indulge in my lifelong love of Star Wars!
