    Shattered Empire Review

    Shattered Empire Review

    Ryan Daly welcomes Kyle Benning, Nathaniel Wayne, and the Irredeemable Shag to a roundtable discussion about the Marvel Comics miniseries JOURNEY TO STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS: SHATTERED EMPIRE. Okay, it's not much of a roundtable discussion. In fact, it was recorded separately over two sessions and cobbled together in a nightmarish post-Thanksgiving tryptophan haze.

Love the Material

You'd be hard pressed to find a podcast with more love for Star Wars than this one. You could probably find some with more "expert knowledge" or that dive deeper into the universe, but Ryan Daly simply can't be beat for letting his love of this material and these characters bleed through everything he says. He knows how to keep things breezy as well, with any given episode being only as long as it needs to be. Whether that's 15 minutes or two hours it'll be worth listening to.

Excellent Star Wars Coverage

Proving he can cover all genres, Ryan Daly of the excellent Flowers and Fishnets Black Canary podcast provides equally great coverage of all things Star Wars in this fun podcast. Perfect for Star Wars fans.

Excellent Insight on Various Corners of the Star Wars Scene

The best part of this podcast is the genuine thoughts you get from the host, Count Drunkula. He has a way of telling you his opinions on various Star Wars subjects but delivering them in a way that if you do not agree, he won't offend you, but will get you to accept his direction and thought process.

Also, one can't discount the way he can deliver a joke so nonchalantly and with a voice that sounds a lot like Jesse Eisenberg that you wonder how this gentleman is not doing a regular syndicated radio show.
