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.

Visions: The Duel - The duel! Fr. Andrew, Thomas, and Angela talk about the Kurosawa inspired first episode of Star Wars Visions and the many callbacks to Japanese storytelling and design, relating that these stories, while having a totally different feel, are very much Star Wars, and how they felt drawn into the story of the Ronin, a wandering Force user.
