Paul, Saf, and Megan were wonderful hosts on the former ForceCast podcast, bringing unique backgrounds and insights to the daily/weekly Star Wars news as well as indepth topics. Although that show is no more, they're back and just as good (if not better) in their own show (which is thankfully now on iTunes). I heavily recommend everyone give it a listen, especially the back catalog of episodes 1-4. They'll give you an intro to the hosts if you're not familiar with them and tee things up for their ongoing discussions. The only 'bad' thing I can say is that the show does not come out weekly! :( The upside is that, unlike a lot of Star Wars podcasts that drown you in shows and rehash the same stuff as your other podcasts, the irregular nature of BC means that the hosts pick the most important things to discuss, and do so with a bit of perspective that waiting awhile to record provides. A+
Very good book, comic book, and Star Wars video game review for the new Star Wars cannon. Another good one is Star Wars: New Cannon Book Club. Another very good podcast that also discusses new canon books and comics.
I loved Saf, Megan, and Paul on Force Cast and they're still going strong! Very interesting POVs!
