About Us

What is The Star Wars Report? Well simply put, The Star Wars Report is a blog and podcast network dedicated to covering all the latest Star Wars news. From The Old Republic to The Clone Wars, the Expanded (Legends) Universe, Star Wars Rebels, and the Films. As well as ALL the upcoming Star Wars projects and other new Star Wars films. The Star Wars Report is YOUR SOURCE for in-depth news coverage from the galaxy far, far away.

Many Bothans died, to bring you this website.


Riley Blanton

Riley DameronI’m the one of the founders of this craziness. But it’s all my fault. I started this site back in April 2011. Wow, as I write this, that’s nearly 2 years ago. What a time it’s been. I host the flagship podcast here on the network, the Star Wars Report. I’ve been a fan of the saga since I saw The Phantom Menace on the tiny, 19 inch, tube-top TV back in 2005.

Bethany Blanton

bethanyCo-Founder, co-host, and… A SISTER?! That’s right! Riley’s sister joined him from the shows inception. Her optimism to the world of Fandom and Podcasting make every episode fun to listen to with its contrast of varying points of view.

Mark Hurliman

MarkCo-founder, and co-host of The Star Wars Report, and Host of Star Wars Beyond the Films. Hailing originally from the EUCast podcast, Mark joined what was at the time The Bothan Report as it’s EU Correspondent. He also has the honor of being the one to coin the new name for the site. He brings a positive and more versed background of knowledge when dealing with the “Expanded Universe” (Legends) side of Star Wars especially.

    What is going on with the feed? I can’t get any new episodes to show up. The last one is SWBTF #39 Mercy Killings. I am using the BeyondPod app for Android.

      Hello Ramy! Thanks for listening to SWR podcasts!
      I’m not seeing anything on the feed from our end of things. Although, I did recently fix the feed to where you can now download all of the episodes rather than the most recent 10. That may have something to do with it. If you don’t mind, I’d try another podcast app (I’ve heard good things about Pocketcasts https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.shiftyjelly.pocketcasts&hl=en )
      See if other app are having the same problem and let me know via email: starwarsreport [at] gmail.com
