Let’s Talk Star Wars: Episode 27 covers Star Wars Rebels and the season finale. They talk about their likes and dislikes, their hangups with Ahsoka and Ezra still being alive during the Return of the Jedi time period, time travel, and more. This being the first time I’ve checked this podcast out, it’s not too bad. Very professional sounding, it has that NPR/morning radio talk show vibe, and the three hosts work pretty well together. If you’re looking for a new Star Wars podcast, you might want to give this one a try. Personally, I don’t think this one is going to make my regular rotation.

I’ve only checked out a couple episodes so far, but from what I’ve heard, they’re pretty good. They have a lot of fun with it. Worth checking out.

Who Talks First: Farewell Rebels! Star Wars Rebels: Finale Reaction is a bit different from a lot of the pro-Star Wars Rebels podcasts out there as they don’t hold back on criticisms and hangups. They talk about their dislike of time travel, dislike of Ezra, their thoughts on the epilogue and more. It’s not all bad, as they also talk about the things they liked. Having listened to a lot of podcasts, it’s sometimes nice to hear a different point of view. After their Rebels discussion, they do a spoiler free review of The Last Jedi novelization. Fair warning, this is not a censored podcast.
