My word choice for Ahmed Best coming back to Start Wars and being a total boss is “cathartic”. He needed it, we needed it, and Favreau, Filoni, Famuyiwa, and Apollo Creed delivered it…Bravo! …much like after a day of wading through trade magazines and social media, you guys deliver a positive 60-90 minutes of friends talking happily about Star Wars. Cathartic!
Miss Caitlin Brian ‘n Matt give us the Best Holocomms chatter from all across the Galaxy ! Sent from the Star Binger to us ! Got ‘em in my Star Wars Podcast Playlist ! They’re Recommended Listenin’ by me RFB
Really, these 3 are so much fun to listen to. I love every crazy bit, every sound effect and every crazy impression. I’m so glad they are back and will listen for as long as they want to produce! Welcome back!!! Many Boats!
Look, all I can say is that when they take a short break between Star Wars shows, I miss them terribly. They’re like my weird, nerdy, funny friends whom I look forward to spending time with each week. I think this is a show you will either love or hate, but if you like your Star Wars with a side of kooky, give this pod a listen.
You guys rock! Best trio since the original trilogy. Glad you will be back soon. Y’all been a staple since mando for me. Love the positive commentary.
Bright suns! Love you guys been here since the old show when you covered season 1 of Mando. Love all you guys and gals especially AZ-00 a.k.a Azoo God bless you guys! Many boats! Be the spark!
I've been a fan since Jabba the Pod and their joy and love for Star Wars is second to none! I always look forward to listening to their podcast after the newest Star Wars show/book/game/comic releases. They are inciteful, genuine, and also, true story: one time I was listening to the show on the way to work and had to pull over because I was laughing/crying so hard. Please give them a listen and you will not be disappointed! Many boats!
Recently lost my job due to downsizing. I am a lifelong fan of Star Wars. Return of the Jedi was the very first movie I saw in theatres. I’ve followed the podcast since Jabba the Pod. You guys have brought joy to my life during this dark time in my life. I love the three of you equally and as always, many boats. 🙏🏽❤️
The funniest, positive-est, bestist Star Wars Podcast! I laugh out loud every week! Azoo is the greatest droid in the Star Wars Universe, he can live with me anytime!
Such a fun pod and the positive approach to Star Wars and fandom are contagious. Their theatrical background is wonderfully apparent in the show.
I was so sad when “the old show” was vaporized but when I heard Brian on Screencrush filling in for Ryan, I was so happy!!! I’ve caught up within the last week on the missed shows and can’t wait to see where the adventures of the starbinger go from here Many Boats! J.
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!
