    Star Wars Infinities Extra w/ David Atwell

    Star Wars Infinities Extra w/ David Atwell

    A continuation of Episode 162, Josh is joined by guest co-host David Atwell to discuss Star Wars Infinities. In this extra content, David and Josh take the conceit of the Infinities stories and apply them to the Prequel and Sequel trilogies. What if Qui-Gon hadn't died at the end of The Phantom Menace? What if Order 66 fails in Revenge of the Sith and the Jedi prevail over Palpatine/Sidious? What If the Holdo Maneuver kills Kylo? All these are possible situations we cover in this episode. Hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed coming up with the scenarios.

    Star Wars Film School - Miyazaki

    Star Wars Film School - Miyazaki

    It’s finally real! After saying we’ve done it on multiple occasions, only to be proven wrong, we’ve actually recorded a Star Wars Film School on Miyazaki! For those who don’t know much about the creative head of Studio Ghibli, we introduce the man and his movies before diving in. Mostly spent talking new canon, we discuss Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance, and The Force Awakens. It also leads us into the possible different path The Rise of Skywalker could have taken given Rey’s connections to one particular Miyazaki movie. It’s an episode we are really proud of so we hope you enjoy it!

    The Clone Wars Season 7 Study Guide

    The Clone Wars Season 7 Study Guide

    As Blaine always tells his students, it’s always best to turn in your homework late than not at all. Even though Blaine was sick and had the due date extended, we are still late to the party with our study guide for all you The Clone Wars newbies. It’s more of a cram session now, but still, a helpful episode, especially if you have never seen the show and wondering what it’s all about. Plus, Blaine panders to our super-fan, Blake, and Josh really, really, really, really, really, really likes what Blaine has to say.

Insight and positivity

I’m a very casual Star Wars fan and haven’t explored much outside of the main saga and Rogue One/Solo, but these guys make me want to explore more of the universe just so I can hear them talk about it. I appreciate Josh and Blaine’s energy and passion for the material as well knowledge; if I did a Star Wars podcast right now, it’d be a disaster because I just don’t have the knowledge that they do. Definitely worth your time!

Smart, Thoughtful, and Wholesome

I’ve listened to many Star Wars podcasts over the years, but finally found my home. What sets this podcast apart from the pack?

1) Short introductions and more relevant topical discussion — many Star Wars podcasts are an hour or two (or longer) which include 30 minutes of introductory blurb or discussing the latest bit of speculation or news. This one is usually an hour or less and stays on topic.

2) New Content Reviews — I’m a huge fan of the novels which is what brought me here. These guys read books! Not only the new books, which usually have great discussion within a couple weeks of release but Legends titles as well. They’ve been fans for a long time and have a deep knowledge and appreciation of the old EU and new Canon. They also have great reviews of video games, comics, soundtracks, and other content. Again, this show is not just spinning its wheels on the latest bit of speculation or trailer, but discussing substantive released content. Great stuff!

3) They are fans, not fanboys or haters — Many podcasts seem to have their mission as being either relentlessly positive no matter what or constantly stewing in the toxic negativity that can appear in some online fandoms. Home One Radio is not clickbait or an outrage machine. They talk like real people used to talk before the internet hyperbolized reaction. In other words, they are open about what they like and dislike without needing to rant. It’s an intelligent conversation between intelligent people.

4) The STORY is the main point — there is plenty of cool stuff in Star Wars and I love that there are people who find their access point through a variety of ways. For me, the story is first and foremost and that’s the case here too. The discussion usually transcends the cool minutiae to really get at the larger story and what it means. This is refreshing!

Thank you Home One Radio for becoming my one and only home for Star Wars radio. Keep up the fantastic work!

Bow down to Josh and Blaines knowledge

I love listening to Home One Radio novel reviews after reading a Star Wars novel. Great insight and knowledge. My one suggestion for the podcast is that the theme song be changed to the tune of Duel of the Fates choir: "Hooome One...RadioOoOoOo!"
