A weekly Star Wars podcast that asks the question, "Who is Luke Skywalker?" Join hosts Mike and Jesse as they explore the journey and character of Luke Skywalker on The Canon Cantina. With the goal of covering every major Luke story by the release of Episode IX, they analyze decades of Legends source material alongside new canon with the aim of answering three key questions:
What state is Luke in as he begins his journey?
How do the events and characters he encounters impact his development as a hero?
How does the Luke presented in each story, whether Legends or canon, compare to the Luke we meet in The Last Jedi?

Great Podcast

Growing up a 90’s Star Wars kid I primarily stuck to the games as my expanded universe knowledge but read several of the early books as well. I fell off the boom train after a few of the more painful to read books came out. These guys understand how to present a good summary with insightful, well rounded and honest commentary. They brought me back into the deep Star Wars lore love as I listened to each book review and hot takes of the week. Hearing the most recent Star Wars news about games, movies and big events are a bonus on this already great podcast.

Miike’s 1 STAR Review:
Where’s the edge? Where’s the anger!? Let out the rage Kage! You’ve been too nice in the past several episodes (need more hot take!). You’re so off your sabacc game you must be the dimension C-137 forbidden zone clone of Mike. Vaderhood has weakened your resolve! Bring back asshat Mike! Go scoot your shameful noodle in the corner you skrull mud monkey!
