A Year of ‘Star Wars’ Podcasts: Looking Back at 2017

Svenska: BSPC 18 i Nyborg Danmark 2009 by Johannes Jansson

2017 is almost over, but before it’s gone completely and we embrace the new year, I went ahead and compiled a list of podcasts from 2017 that I had the opportunity to guest in.

I also had some major changes in the podcasts I currently co-host. I started it back in August 2015, but episode 31 of Galactic Fashion will be my last episode of the year. I’ll be making some personal changes in my life, so that requires taking a few steps back from podcasting. It doesn’t mean I’ll be completely gone from the podcasting community, but the frequency of episodes will decline throughout the new year, especially once Star Wars Rebels comes to an end.

For now, a big thanks to everyone who invited me to appear in their podcasts and an even bigger thanks to the co-hosts I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with in the past year. Looking forward to what 2018 will bring!
