This podcast is a dream come true

I have been an absolute Star Wars music nerd for a good while and finding other people like me spending literally 2 hours on five minutes of music is simply the best. I wish I had these kinds of conversations irl 😂. I love that you collaborate, too, and especially love hearing from Frank Lehman 😉. Thanks so much Chrysanthie for being this passionate about Star Wars music and sharing the magic!

Best Podcast in the Galaxy

This is my favorite podcast! Xanthe’s passion for music and Star Wars is awe-inspiring (so is her musical talent!). Every podcast is a fascinating, fun, and intelligent analysis of the music of Star Wars.

TheStarWarsSkinny ,

Amazing

I don’t know a thing about music, but have always loved the big themes of Star Wars. This show has helped me to recognize and appreciate elements that I wasn’t even picking up on. I can’t wait to see what I learn as this show covers the rest of the saga.
