    Ep 59: The High Republic DELAYED!

    The High Republic reveal last February from code name Project Luminous will provide stories from 200 years before Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace…so another 7 months of waiting won’t hurt. The delay to January 2021 on the High Republic literary line may be justified but that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to speculate on why! Put on your thinking caps and start the conspiracy theories as Eric, Charles, and Corey investigate new details on the postponed release of the High Republic!

    Ep 57: Padmé Amidala Spectacular

    Ep 57: Padmé Amidala Spectacular

    Princess of Theed followed up by Queen of Naboo all before her 15th birthday?! That’s quite a resumé for Padmé Amidala even before we saw her on the big screen in Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace. She’s been gaining popularity through books, comics, and TV shows. Our interest has NEVER been higher with Queen’s Peril on the horizon. Travel back to the prequels with Corey, Eric, and Charles as they weigh in on Padmé Amidala and her legacy in the Star Wars universe!

    Ep 56: Clone Wars - End of an Era

    Ep 56: Clone Wars - End of an Era

    It started back in 2008. Although some of us didn’t join the ranks right away, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will hold us in its clutches long after the nightmare of the infamous Order 66. The chaotic stream of epic battles, character developments, and storyline reveals kept us pleading for more….until the very end. It’s a time to reminisce and a time to speculate about what could be. Corey, Eric, and Charles take us through the animated series that captured our hearts and left us forever grateful to that cowboy hat wearin’ renegade.

Fan-FREAKING-tastic

This is the EXACT podcast missing from my fandom podcast experience. I just found this podcast this afternoon and and binged through four episodes. What a delight to listen to discussions about books I’m reading and enjoying and to feel part of a conversation... and it’s such a breath of fresh air heating this amount of love and positivity from male fans! I’d give this podcast ten stars if that were possible! Thank you!

The best cantina in the outer rim

If I could only listen to one Star Wars podcast, it would be this one. I listen to a few and enjoy them all, but the Living Force has become my favorite (I’m also a new fan of Inside the Force). The podcast emphasizes discussing Star Wars literature, both canon and Legends, while also discussing other SW topics. The hosts have diverse opinions and preferences, but are respectful and fun. I’ve been looking for a positive, Legends-friendly podcast and can now say, “Chewie, we’re home.” Keep it up guys, you’re the best.
