    Duel of the Fates Concept Art - The Blockade Runner Podcast #140

    Duel of the Fates Concept Art - The Blockade Runner Podcast #140

    This episode features a look at over 25 leaked concept art images from Colin Trevorrow's Duel of the Fates script including sequences, planets, vehicles, and characters not seen in The Rise of Skywalker. I hadn't actually read the leaked script at the time this episode was recorded, so it's mostly a reaction to the images themselves and a brief synopsis of the story I'd come across. The art itself is embedded in the podcast chapters or in the video version available on YouTube; if you're driving or doing the dishes or something while listening, you can check them out on Imgur here.

    Goodbye Team Colossus - The Blockade Runner Podcast #139

    Star Wars Resistance ended on a high note last week with the excellent two-part episode "The Escape." Friend of the show Caleb joins John to show some love to the often overlooked Resistance, take a quick look back at season two, and break down this final episode's best moments. We also look forward to Clone Wars season 7 and the future of Star Wars animation to round out the episode.

    Trivial Pursuit & TROS w/ Chris - The Blockade Runner Podcast #137

    Trivial Pursuit & TROS w/ Chris - The Blockade Runner Podcast #137

    This week's episode is a recording of a Trivial Pursuit game John and Chris played at a kitchen table outside of St. Paul, Minnesota a few hours after catching a screening of The Rise of Skywalker. As a result it features lots of chatter about Episode 9, the prequels, sequels, and original trilogy, but also pretty rough audio. We think it's a fun episode if you're ok with (far) less than great production quality, but we'll be back soon with another standard episode if not.

    Diverse Characters & Legacy Characters in the Sequel Trilogy - The Blockade Runner Podcast #136

    Diverse Characters & Legacy Characters in the Sequel Trilogy - The Blockade Runner Podcast #136

    Ryan returns in this second post-TROS episode to weigh in on diverse characters and representation in the sequel trilogy. We spend the second half of the show deciding whether or not we believe Han, Luke, and Leia's stories were more satisfying at the conclusion of the OT or the ST. Plus we throw in a little holiday cheer at the start of the show by chatting about how Star Wars made its way into our Christmas gatherings.

    For The Last First Time: The Blockade Runner Podcast #135

    For The Last First Time: The Blockade Runner Podcast #135

    TROS Spoilers abound as we continue our tradition of putting out an immediate reactions episode with terrible audio quality and terrible blues music pumped your way from a recording done at a local bar. John, Jeremy, Dan, Kevin, and Bart bring you an informal, loose discussion of our first thoughts on the movie. We'll be back later in the weekend with a higher audio quality, more organized look at the movie (featuring Ryan who's absent from this recording).

Pure Positivity from and for Star Wars Fans

Great podcast from two guys who always seem to find the best in everything in a galaxy far, far away. A refreshing change from the more snarky, cynical attitudes found on many other SW podcasts.

JerSean! ,

The Force is strong with this one!

This is a great Star Wars podcast. It provides a perfect blend of fandom, critique, analysis, speculation, humor, and fun. It's a serious Star Wars podcast that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's best quality, by far, is that all the contributors' love of Star Wars is constantly on display and contagious. Give it a listen!
