Beltway Banthas: Star Wars, Politics & More
About This Show
Beltway Banthas is a bi-weekly Star Wars podcast about the intersection of fandom and politics. For hosts Stephen Kent & Swara Salih, one of those things is politics. Star Wars draws from our worlds politics just as much as it contributes to it by influencing policy makers, journalists and thought leaders. On this podcast we seek to understand how Star Wars impacts the world we live in, while also covering the Star Wars news, gossip and hype of the day.
