The Star Wars Report Podcast is taking things to the next level! We will be starting a new era of the podcast and launching our Patreon page on Saturday May 23rd at 12:00pm EST with a live show and then a broadcast of our audio commentary of A New Hope. The broadcast will be sure to feature some special guests (to be announced) as well as our take on the Star Wars film that started it all! It’s Star Wars Month and come celebrate with us!

For almost 4 years, The Star Wars Report podcast has brought Star Wars Fans everywhere entertaining and engaging commentary and discussion of that galaxy far, far away.

The flagship show of starwarsreport.com, hosts Riley Blanton and Mark Hurliman talk about all the latest Star Wars news. From Star Wars Rebels to the upcoming theatrical films, and all other new Star Wars projects, they cover it all. The show also features conversation and coverage of Star Wars Celebrations, Dragon Con, and other fan gatherings. Packed with in-depth interviews, reviews, can’t-miss coverage and commentary, the Star Wars Report is YOUR Star Wars podcast home.

By supporting The Star Wars Report through Patreon, you’re helping the show improve in quality and quantity. You’re opening doors to an even higher quality weekly program. And as thanks for your support, we have some awesome rewards and bonuses.  

The podcast will always be free, however producing a high-quality weekly program costs precious time and resources. Riley is a full-time student and AFROTC cadet. Mark is juggling the responsibilities of work and being dad. Supporting The Star Wars Report through Patreon will allow us to defer those costs and focus more on creating a quality show.
