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!
