  • Fauxthentic History Fauxthentic History Logo

    Hosted by Holly Frey (Stuff You Missed in History Class) and Bryan Young (Full Of Sith) Fauxthentic History is your most reliable source of fictional history inside the many, varied worlds of popular culture, mythology, and nerddom. From Star Wars and Star Trek to Disney films and Lord of the Rings, your hosts will take you through the finer details of your favorite stories in ways you never imagined.

    Have you ever wondered about the military strategy behind the Battle of Hoth? Or about the details of the creation of the New Republic after the Empire's collapse, and how things played out in galactic government from there? Fauxthentic History has you covered.

    No aspect of the galaxy's history is too obscure for these historians. Previous episodes have examined topics like Alderaan's culture and what was really lost when the planet was destroyed, and the Jedi Council including the details of its often-overlooked four subcouncils.

    We've talked about notable Imperial defectors, the winding paths of Darth Maul's life, and even how various holidays have been celebrated on various planets.

    Sometimes, the focus is on the biographies of notable figures of the galaxy, such as Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin, the Ewok Princess Kneesa, or the fascinating – and terrifying – Dathomiri witch Mother Talzin. Other episodes examine larger social structures of the galaxy, which can range from the Bounty Hunters Guild, to the criminal underworld, to a deep-dive look at a specific species like the Aqualish, all with an eye toward piecing together the larger galactic picture to see how even small, seemingly insignificant events can impact the course of history.

  • The Forcecast The Forcecast Logo

    The ForceCast is the oldest, longest-running Star Wars Podcast in the galaxy. Ryan Donoho and Daniel Berry talk to the biggest names in front and behind the camera in that Galaxy Far Far Away.

They've interviewed popular You Tubers and other big influencers in the Galaxy of Heroes community and continue to seek out a variety of perspectives through their listeners as well, since everyone's play style is unique.

Sean focuses more on Light Side and John on Dark Side to try and have a broad understanding of what makes the various factions tick.

    Sean and John have been working together since they hosted a very bad college radio show about the paranormal called "The Other Side" and were also two of the hosts of original Radio Free Tatooine podcast, which ran from 2014-2018.

    A weekly Star Wars show exploring the galaxy far, far away. Fueled by our love and passion for the Force, we tap into hundreds of holocrons in order to bring you the knowledge and insight of all things Star Wars. We discuss unique topics, scan the news and bring on guests to join the conversations.

    Like all Star Wars fans, we consume it all. We analyze the films, tv shows, comics, novels, games and more and discuss their impact on the ever-growing Star Wars canon. And we do this all the while promoting positive fandom within the Star Wars Community. We love Star Wars and we feel honored, in our own small way, to be able to share our passion for this galaxy to other Star Wars fans.

    We have had the great pleasure of talking Star Wars with Tom Kane, David Collins, Greg Grunberg and other Star Wars hosts and contributors. There's nothing better than hearing all the stories on what Star Wars has meant to each one of us.

    This episode of the show from Star Wars Celebration, we discuss all the things announced, revealed and anticipated in the upcoming year from Lucasfilm. We'll also bring the audience into the conversation and give away some of the latest Star Wars items.

    Join us as we go Inside The Force.

  • Lords of the Sith Lords of the Sith Logo

    Lords of the Sith is a daughter project of Star Wars Connection, the first fan podcast to represent the section of the fandom excited about romance in the Sequel Trilogy. We provide educational Star Wars content through a lens of literary and film analysis, psychology and a dash of pop culture. Lords of the Sith proudly represents the international fandom and its diversity. Our speakers represent various cultures, age brackets, genders, ethnicities and backgrounds; proof that love of Star Wars can bring people together across the stars and galaxy.

    The words "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away" remind us that Star Wars is a fairy tale in space. Beyond queens and princesses, palaces, epic quests, and transformative journeys to distant lands, an important motif of fairy tales is romance. Star Wars has a tradition of uniting unlikely couples; one distinctive aspect of its romances is its subversion of common tropes and refreshing portrayals of gender dynamics, which humanize the characters by giving them complexity and nuance.

    Our motto is "Those ships also belong in Star Wars" and our discussion covers the importance of romance in Star Wars from a storytelling standpoint. In this epic generational saga love in all its forms plays a key role. All sources of inspiration for Star Wars feature romance, from Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress to Flash Gordon and the work of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Romance also ties in with Joseph Campbell's mythology, at the heart of Star Wars.

    Join our speakers Denise, Lee and Mary and special guest Monte as they cover romantic themes in Star Wars from a literary and film analysis perspective, while also discussing the perception of these themes by the Star Wars fanbase, where romance is often believed to be closely tied to the female viewership and supposedly disavowed by male fans. But "shipping" in Star Wars is as old as the question of "Han or Luke: who will Leia end up with?" and romantic elements are as integral to the larger story told in Star Wars as lightsabers and the Force itself.

  • Making Tracks Making Tracks Logo

    Part of the Fantha Tracks podcast network, Making Tracks is a bi-weekly interview-based podcast bringing news, discussion and interviews from the UK, Europe, Australia and the US. Each episode, Mark Newbold is joined by fellow Fantha Tracker Dave Tree and together they talk with stars of the saga – guests have included Rogue One director Gareth Edwards, and legendary artists Greg Hildebrandt – and fellow fans, while talking about the ever-busy series and its illustrious past.

    Making Tracks also focuses heavily on event coverage. Since launch, Making Tracks has reported from New York Comic Con, MCM London, Collectormania, MCM Birmingham, Farthest From and Fantha Day (yes, Fantha Tracks has its own convention with Fantha Day 5 coming May 2019), London Film and Comic Con and Star Wars Fan Fun Day. Chicago will be our first Celebration as Fantha Tracks (but certainly not our first rodeo).

    Other shows on the Fantha Tracks podcast network include literature show Canon Fodder, Q&A podcast Fantha Chat, the music-based show Desert Planet Discs and Australian focused show The Fantha From Down Under. This weekend will see the launch of our latest show, Transatlantic Tracks. Our aim is to be eclectic, insightful and most of all fun.

    Since launching in late October 2017, Fantha Tracks has made waves in the fandom, being featured on Wired, io9, the BBC news website, Yahoo and Wired while many members of the team have been interviewed on BBC radio. We’re proud and excited to be bringing Fantha Tracks to the Celebration Chicago podcast stage.

  • Never Tell Me The Pods Never Tell Me The Pods Logo

    Never Tell Me the Pods is a deep dive into Star Wars filled with love and puns. Groan-worthy episode titles include Where There's a Whill, There's Îmwe (discussing Rogue One), Human / Cyborg Relations (discussing droid rights), and Look Who's Talzin (discussing Dathomir and the Nightsisters). Never Tell Me the Pods covers all aspects of Star Wars, including both Legends and new canon, comics, video games, television, and tabletop.

    The show focuses on centering the experiences of under-represented voices in fandom while bringing true passion to the material. An episode may do a deep dive comparing lightsaber lore from Legends and the new canon, or it may generate an entire alternate Thrawn trilogy storyline prominently featuring fan-favorite fanfic character Gunk Mudboat, Corran Horn's best friend. (This is what happens when two of the hosts are improv comedians who have never read the Expanded Universe.)

    Fandom episodes might tackle representation and diversity issues in tabletop Star Wars, interview the mysterious Veerswatch, or ask Marvel editors which hair products Grand Admiral Thrawn would use. Other standout segments include Pigs in Space (where the hosts list porcine creatures in the galaxy far, far away), Peace is a Lie, There is Only Fashion (where the hosts talk about Star Wars outfits), and Capital Shipping, which is exactly what it sounds like. Pranks Paul, Kat Kuhl, James D'Amato and Johnny O'Mara are veteran podcasters and storytellers who live in Chicago. You can find them on other shows including the AutoNomic Podcast, Dilettante Ball, and the OneShot Network.

  • Rogue Podron Rogue Podron Logo

    ROGUE PODRON is a weekly podcast that travels through the Star Wars: X-Wing novels by Michael Stackpole and Aaron Allston. The podcast acts as a book-club companion, allowing listeners to read several chapters of the famous Legends novels each week before listening to the hosts discuss the same chapters on the show.

    In addition to the X-Wing novels, listeners have also joined ROGUE PODRON on journeys through other classic Legends novels such as The Courtship of Princess Leia, with a steadfast focus on having fun through reading.

    Through weekly listener questions, a string of inside jokes too long to list, and a vibrant social media community, ROGUE PODRON has built a community of long-time Legends fans and newcomers alike.

    After completing the X-Wing books, ROGUE PODRON will delve deeper into Star Wars lore, with each co-host leading raucous discussions on a topic of their choosing. From the biology of Thala-sirens to droid rights, from Constable Zuvio to Chief Chirpa the Ewok, ROGUE PODRON will continue to provide hilarious entertainment beyond the book series.

    ROGUE PODRON was created by Meg Humphrey, regular host of FAR FAR AWAY RADIO, and FFAR episode editor Danny Pirtle. They are joined by Saf Davidson and Heath Williams, making for a fantastic squadron of humorous, insightful, and dedicated pilots.

  • Skytalkers Podcast Skytalkers Podcast Logo

    Skytalkers, hosted by lifelong best friends Caitlin Plesher and Charlotte Errity, is a Star Wars podcast that covers the Star Wars films, television shows, stories, canon, themes, and characters in a comprehensive, three-part format. We've been huge fans for over half of our lives but our story really begins here, in 2005, when Caitlin lost a bet in middle school and Charlotte forced her to watch all six Star Wars films. It was the fall of 2005, Revenge of the Sith had just come out on DVD, and when Caitlin watched them all, she was instantly hooked. We never really turned back and eventually in January 2017, we started our very own podcast: Skytalkers.

    Our first episode was recorded in Caitlin's apartment closet, squished together in a makeshift recording booth, figuring out how to ask questions, speak into the microphone, and produce something people might actually want to listen to. Since then, we've moved across the country, started new jobs, and finally figured out how to plug in our microphones. We love to take a singular theme in Star Wars and dissect it across all films and mediums. One of our favorite episodes being about the different types of visions and premonitions in Star Wars, or the symbolism of hands throughout the films. When listeners tune into Skytalkers, they're guaranteed to hear about at least one of our favorite things: the prequels, Ahsoka Lives (!), Kylo Ren, galactic politics, or our immense love for the Skywalker family. Our goal from the beginning of Skytalkers was to create a space where we could talk about Star Wars the way we wanted to: by discussing all aspects of the franchise in a positive, analytical, and fun way. We hope that when you turn on Skytalkers, you feel like you're a part of the conversation: laughing, obsessing, and diving deep into all your favorite parts of our collective galaxy far, far away.

While the show is primarily devoted to Books and Comics on occasion you may catch an episode where they discuss a Star Wars film or TV show. This allows them to draw connections between the films and the books in a way that other shows may not. The show has also been proud to facilitate discussions with its listener community via social media and discussion groups on both Facebook and Goodreads. Star Wars Bookworms last appeared on the podcast stage at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.

    Doug Benson, Paul Rust, and Jackie Kashian, to chef J. Kenji López-Alt, and New Yorker cartoonist Joe Dator. The show began in 2013 with minute one of Star Wars (1977). After working their way through the original trilogy, they moved onto the prequels (you haven't lived until you've spent three weeks [fifteen episodes] discussing a podrace!) and finally started their coverage of the Disney films in 2018 when they started analyzing minute one of The Force Awakens. By the time they complete TFA in late May 2019 they'll have released close to one thousand episodes, all of which are available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and most other popular podcast platforms.

  • Tarkin’s Top Shelf Tarkin’s Top Shelf Logo

    Tarkin's Top Shelf is a Star Wars literary podcast. It was created and crafted with the hope of delivering educational, yet entertaining reviews on the new canonical novels, and young adult books from the Star Wars Universe. The hosts dive deep into the books and relentlessly look for continuity connections between the pages of the books and everything on screen. In essence, the show strives to bring "Book Awareness" to the Star Wars fandom by showcasing the stories that happen off-screen. A richness that only a book can bring, by meshing imagination from paper with imagery on screen. In other words, Tarkin's Top Shelf is the fandom's bookends. With each episode, the exploration of Star Wars aspects ensues deeper between theoretical thinking and beyond the books. Of course, all the while keeping it positive, yet honest. After all, if one is to understand the great mystery (Star Wars), one must study all its aspects, not just the films.

    So please, join your hosts, Becca Benjamin, and Mark Sutter as they take to the Star Wars Celebration Podcasting Stage and take you on a literary journey across the stars in a galaxy far, far away. Their discussion will cover every parsec of story possibilities from the books, to on screen, and everything in-between. Also, Tarkin's Top Shelf welcomes their honorary guest hosts: Ryder Waldron from the Idiot's Array Podcast and Devon Meyers, the co-host from Kanata's Castle Podcast to accompany them on this bookish adventure through Star Wars literature and beyond.

  • The Canon Cantina The Canon Cantina Logo

    While Luke"s journey is the core of the show, other aspects of the universe are explored in recurring segments. The hosts talk tabletop and video games at "The Dejarik Table," argue what should remain Legend in "I Will Make It Canon," embrace the imperfections of Star Wars in "The Criticism Corner," and many more. Along the way, listeners will enjoy the kind of banter that only 25+ years of friendship fueled by a mutual love of Star Wars can provide.

    Listeners will likely find something in each host to identify with. Jesse has remained a steadfast lifelong Star Wars fanatic, accumulating a wealth of detailed Star Wars knowledge and an inspiring devotion to all things related to that galaxy far, far away. Mike was a childhood fan who dropped out in the years following the prequels, but whose love for the universe was rekindled by The Force Awakens. Not one to pull his punches, Mike understands that it's okay to (politely) pick on something you love, and is always ready with a witty jab. Their personalities play off of each other in a way that will keep guests engaged and laughing through each episode.
