This is the Star Wars Fandom at its finest

I stumbled across this podcast several months ago and was initially impressed by the ease of flow exhibited in Mark and Nathan’s conversation. Since that day I have plowed through nearly every podcast available through iTunes.

These guys know their stuff and most importantly they LOVE Star Wars. I have always learned something new from this podcast. And unlike other Star Wars podcasts I was not left wondering, “do they even know what they’re talking about?”

Mark and Nathan have a way of making you feel like you are part of their incredible friendship and that you get to participate in enjoying the fandom with them. Thank you guys for letting us into your world!

My only complaint would be that I can’t stand to listen to other podcasts anymore. Which I guess is a good thing for them! They do an excellent job.

If you want to laugh, be uplifted, and educated. This is the podcast for you.

thoughtful Star Wars discussion

I'd gotten sick of most Star Wars podcasts, particularly ForceCast, which seem to focus on Star Wars-related nonsense, such as news stories about guys dressed as Darth Vader robbing banks.

Fortunately, I found SW Beyond the Films. Nathan and Mark actually engage in interesting and substantive discussions about Star Wars - the stories of Star Wars. They tend to focus on new releases, but also discuss broader themes, such as gender, in the saga. They keep the conversation lively and lighthearted throughout.

I also appreciate that, unlike ForceCast, SW BTF doesn't trash certain fans and is generally respectful of all points of view. The podcast covers all periods of the EU and the Disney canon. No matter which era of Star Wars you enjoy, there's probably something on this podcast you'll enjoy.

Also, by and large, these episodes don't become immediately obsolete, as many podcast episodes do. It's definitely worth going back and listening to earlier episodes.

Overall, this has become my favorite SW podcast.
