Easily my favorite Star Wars Pod. Always puts me in a good mood after I listen to Brian, Caitlin and Matt. I still listen to the old pod when I’m bored or rewatching the Clone Wars.
I cannot say how much I love this show, but I will at least mention a little. It’s like listening to some good friends lovingly discuss and fawn over Star Wars as much as I do with my friends. So much love for everything in a galaxy far far away, and also a boatload of love for everyone on Earth who brings it to us. I’m thankful every time I get to listen to an episode, because I know I’ll be happy, I’ll laugh, cry, and have my mind blown. Woo woo! Many boats.
What a great podcast! Definitely one of the preeminent SW podcasts out there. Brian, Matt, and Caitlin are phenomenal at incredibly over the top and fantastic ambassadors for Star Wars!
Absolutely awesome show. Brian, Caitlin, and Matt balance each other out so we’ll. Brian with deep canon lore knowledge, Caitlin with character development and cutesy creatures, Matt with the technical questions and fellow Dash Rendar enthusiast. More SFX! More! MORE! Both Pod shows were the Star Wars comfort I needed while dealing with serious health issues. Can’t promote this enough. You guys are amazing keep being the spark to so many people. Many boats!
I’m so happy that I stumbled across the podcast just in time to binge Obi Wan. The reviews are so insightful, I thoroughly appreciate the forays into Canon and the introduction of characters and storylines from the comics and books I haven’t read. Listening to this podcast gives me a more complete understanding of each and every episode. I also appreciate the banter of the friendly hosts that never goes so far as to make a new listener feel like an outsider. Thank you also for the female voice - girls love Star Wars too! Keep up the great work!
I’m another long lost podawan whose found his way home since order 66, end of the last pod..edit…it’s pronounced zy knight…xi is is Greek letter
Jabba the Pod was like that out of the way restaurant that had the world’s best burritos that closed down. But then Return of the Pod shows up, with even better burritos. It’s like that.
I don’t know what that phrase means, but the words pop into my head all day long, so thank you for that! I can’t get enough of Brian‘s Ziro the Hutt; please continue to annoy everyone with him as often as possible. I love the pod, keep it up!
Each and every week you guy's entertain the criff outta all of us in listener land and i'm extremely grateful for the show. Always a fantastic fun filled discussion from you all with a lot of laughs along the way, staple since the jabba days. Keep up the amazing work , love you all involved in this off world pod cast.
Long time listener here of the old and new show. You all do amazing work and I appreciate your positive Lens on Star Wars, I can’t even talk to friends about Star Wars content (everyone thinks they are a critic…). In an earlier episode this season 4 you shared someone’s top 5 bits. Mine is definitely you all telling Lars (and his leg) to get outta here! Fun fact: my first name is Lars and my Dogs first name is Tano (he’s 4, so yes I named him Tano before that was cool). So yeah I definitely burn my tongue on pizza every time. Since we both have first names that are last names of Star Wars characters I would appreciate any suggestions for the next puppy I’m getting next summer. Any good ideas?

I have been listening since the original show! I always enjoy y’alls insight and deep dives even if they go of the rail sometimes, lol. Glad you guys keep the show going and I look forward to many more seasons.
So Glad You Are All Back!!! I was heartbroken when “The Old Show” Died. I have tried dozens of Star Wars Podcasts and you are all HANDS DOWN the best! You guys helped me through some real tough stuff, and knowing that I could just listen to good friends talk about Star Wars and Marvel I know everything is gonna be okay. You guys are truly Legends and I am so happy to have you back!
Thank you all for the wonderful reviews, top notch production and witty conversation. Every time I listen, I’m laughing, sometimes shedding a small tear and just enjoying Return of the Pod. Matt, obviously the Grand Inquisitor is not dead. If Maul, Anakin, Palpatine, Leia and Fennec Shand can survive death, I think they will bring him back. I’m looking forward to seeing how Obi Wan finds his way back. Who will turn on the light for him? Peace! Many Boats
I can’t believe you guys have been back this long! I binged your original show and was sad to hear that it wasn’t being renewed. Today this popped up and I couldn’t believe my eyes that you guys are back! I am so excited to binge these new episodes! Many boats!
I'd like to say I'm an OG fan, I've been listening to them since their original pod. I can't think of a better trio of podcasters and such an amazing Star Wars podcast that stays positive and does not delve into the toxicity of the fandom. Many Boats!!
Look. Day in and day out I’m battling wampas and massiffs and porgs and I get my fair share of bumps and scrapes. When I turn on Return of the Pod it’s like a long, soothing soak in a tank of bacta. Healing, rest, and laughter are mine thanks to the crew of the Starbinger. Receiving anything and everything Star Wars as a gift of the Force, these noble hosts walk us thru the latest Star Wars shows and updates with absolute joy. They know their stuff, love Star Wars, and have a great time together. I’m so glad that the imperial probe droid is there to record it all for us! Thanks so much for a great show. Many boats!
Just want to say “thank you” to the three of you for helping to get a lot of us through this pandemic. The way you three interact is a joy and I am constantly laughing and smiling while listening. MTFBWY, always.
I was a devoted follower of “the old show” and just rediscovered this podcast again a couple of weeks ago. I have been binging to get caught up. Enjoying the recaps of The Bad Batch, and as I am rewatching Clone Wars right now, I’m anxious to get to my second time through Bad Batch. I love this podcast cast because I love, love, love all things Star Wars (and enjoy the MCU, LEGOS and action figures). I’m a Star Wars nerd and have been since I saw the first movie four times when it came out in 1977 (yikes, that is aging me). This podcast is a safe place, makes me laugh, and isn’t judgmental. There’s a lot of toxic stuff out there, and I won’t even go there. I teach middle school and have told some of my students who are Star Wars nerds about the podcast. Thank you for being a conversational podcast that makes people feel very comfortable, like we could just have a conversation with you. I’m looking forward to hearing your recaps of The Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka when we get there (huge Aksoka fan). Also, any of the new MCU series. :) Many boats!!!
Awesome as always!!! Your relaxed vibe, even on 'normal' episodes, is like three friends sitting around a table, eating chips, bonding over their shared love of something close to their souls. But so relaxed. Keep it going!
Great listen and break down of each episode of all Star Wars. Been listening since the beginning of the show that shall not be named. Gets me through my day. I encourage everyone to lock in on this crew and Engage on some fun. Many boats!!
This show (and the Old Show) have been and continue to be spectacular fun and properly irreverent, creating a feeling of camaraderie both between the hosts and between the show and its Podawans! HOWEVER — Hot Take #1: the show has been somewhat “rounded” or “circular” of late…lacking in Corners, shall we say. (Hint hint, cough cough) P.S.: Hot Take #2: Rosario as Ahsoka will World Between Worlds her way into the Obi-Wan show, perhaps to warn him about Ezra’s arrival several years later.
I get as much enjoyment hearing your episode breakdowns as I do watching the show!
Love the show very entertaining and enjoyable but I missed some show.. which episode was the many boats from.. id like to listen to that
Love the show, I’ve been a big fan since the last season of the old show! I’ve noticed Letterkenny references becoming more and more frequent on the show, especially, if not only from, Brian. With that being said, is Letterkenny going to be directly talked about on the show? At least in some sort of fashion or tangent that’s in every episode?
Started the Star Wars podcast journey with these 3 on an “OLD SHOW” that will remain nameless. Great insight on all things Star Wars and they don’t take themselves too seriously. They have fun and it’s a great way to stay in the loop. #manyboats
Absolutely love this podcast, it is by far the best Star Wars podcast I have found. Wonderful job of breaking down new content, theorizing for future star wars projects, and make you laugh while listening. 5/5
