The Secrets of Star Wars

The Secrets of Star Wars is a fan podcast all about everything to do with Star Wars, including all of the movies, TV shows, streaming series, books, comic books, fan culture and more. The show looks at both the new creations as they are released as well as the existing library of Star Wars, going beyond the surface to look at the deeper layers and themes, while never forgetting how cool lightsabers are. Join your host Fr. Andrew “Father Fett” Kinstetter as well as Mike Creavey, Andrew Hermiz, Thomas Sanjurjo, and Angela Sealana for a weekly celebration of all things Star Wars.
