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.

Recent Episodes

Star Wars Rebels: S4, Ep 14 - What is the essence of Star Wars? Fr. Andrew, Angela, Thomas, and Mike discuss the penultimate episode of Rebels and how even with all the action, the essence of Star Wars is revealed: relationships are essential and hope for change can start with just one person like Ezra.
Star Wars Rebels: S4, Ep. 13 - Time travel in Star Wars? Fr. Andrew, Angela, and Thomas discuss how time travel in this episode causes Ezra (and the viewer) to learn how to let go of a past preventing him from living in the present through understanding his pain; the nature of suffering; and the reality of self-sacrificial love.
Star Wars Rebels: S3, Ep 20: Twin Suns - Kenobi and Maul's final confrontation! Fr. Andrew, Angela, Thomas, and Mike talk about the immense growth and history of these two characters; how Maul personifies a twisted desire for vengeance; and how Kenobi, paralleling Christ in the desert, models for us what following God's unique vocation for each of us looks like: peace and serenity.
Ghosts of Geonosis: Rebels, Season 3, Ep 12, 13 - What's in a name? Fr. Andrew and Andrew H. view these episodes through the lens of the dual morality on display between Saw Gerrera and Kanan/Ezra even though they're all Rebels; discuss how names help us avoid dehumanizing people; and talk about ends justifying the means as Saw questions whether mercy, even in war, is the right moral path.
The Last Battle: Rebels, Season 3, Ep. 6 - Rex dealing with PTSD from the Clone Wars inspires Fr. Andrew, Mike, Andrew H., and Angela to discuss how the devil tries to get us to fight one another and not the True Enemy (as with the clones, droids, and Palpatine in the Clone Wars) and how we are called to react as Christians.
