Just like talking to your friends about Star Wars.
We all like SW, but it's fun hear why other people like it. Just the first episode had me say out loud "I never thought about it like that". Looking forward to more.
A Great Bit of Banter!!
If you're a fan of Star Wars, you need to check this show out. It's a very simple premise, but it is masterfully executed. Jeff is a good host, he asks the right questions, and the guests are very interesting to listen to. It makes you appreciate Star Wars even more than you already do.
More fun than wiping a Wampas behind!
All of MarvinDogs podcasts are fun and informative and this one is no different. Despite my Star Wars ignorance I have still found both episodes to be easy listens and highly enjoyable. Jeff is a great host who is highly enthusiastic and extremely engaging. The stories and topics discussed are fantastic. If you're a Star Wars fan you would be doing yourself a disservice by not listening to this.
