Great and relaxed Star Wars podcast!
There are lots of Star Wars podcasts out there these days but Luke and James have a very chilled sense of humour that works well. They wanted to move their Star Wars 'pub' chats online and that's definitely the sort of vibe they've gone for. Each episode touches on the major developments in the Star Wars universe that week. Definitely recommended to get a dose of Star Wars.

Impressive, Most impressive.
Always a thoroughly enjoyable show.
Luke and James give a great news round-up on all things star wars happening right now akin to Collider's Jedi council or Rebel Force Radio.
On top of this the tangents they so often go off on can be immensely interesting or sometimes just hilarious. A lot of the comedy harkens back to being a star wars fan in the 90's or early 2000's; this gives a strong mix where for those of us who have grown up with star wars it becomes a nostalgic laugh but for younger or newer fans listening to the humour can teach you a lot about contemporary star wars views.
The friendship shared by these two fans becomes clear throughout and helps to create a wonderfully casual air to the show. They do have a wide breadth of star wars knowledge and a key understanding of its themes and devices.
All in all a great mix of in-depth news, views, and opinions mixed generously with a whole Bor Gullet of comedy.
Keep up the great work!
