Podcast Stardust #400: The High Republic Phase One Review

by Podcast Stardust

We are celebrating 400 episodes of Podcast Stardust with a discussion of phase one of The High Republic.

It doesn’t seem possible, but here we are at 400 episodes of Podcast Stardust! We are celebrating this milestone in the history of the podcast with a discussion of phase one of The High Republic. However, first, we would like to take a moment to thank all of you that have been with us for this adventure whether you joined us for episode one or only more recently discovered our fully armed and operational podcast. This show is our weekly appointment to talk Star Wars, and we are excited that anyone wants to hear what we have to say. Once again, thank you from Dennis and Jay!

Phase one of The High Republic has concluded. The Jedi and the Republic have suffered their greatest defeat at the hands of Marchion Ro and the Nihil with the events surrounding the destruction of Starlight Beacon in wave three. Because The High Republic occupied so much of our discussion in the past 100 episodes, we decided to focus on it while celebrating episode 400. Join us as we share our favorite books, Jedi, Padawans, villains, and more. Thank you for downloading or streaming Podcast Stardust!

In this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Our favorite novels from both the adult and young adult books,
  • Who our favorite Jedi were in phase one,
  • Some of our favorite Padawans from phase one of The High Republic,
  • Who the best villains were, and
  • We try to answer the question, “What are the Jedi afraid of?”

Thanks for joining us for another episode. Please subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts and spread the word to all of your Star Wars friends. May the Force be with you!

Don’t forget to check out our latest discussion of Star Wars: The High Republic: Eye of the Nihil in episode 399.

Podcast Stardust is the fully armed and operational podcast inspired by the code name for the Death Star. Hosted by first-generation Star Wars fans, Dennis Keithly and Jay Krebs, Podcast Stardust endeavors to bring thought provoking discussion on recent Star Wars news on a weekly basis. Between news episodes, Dennis and Jay review the latest episodes from Star Wars television covering everything from ResistanceRebels, and The Clone Wars to The Mandalorian and other live action productions on Disney+. Of course, Podcast Stardust wouldn’t be complete without thematic discussions, top ten lists, and interviews on everything from Star Wars literature, comics, and the films themselves.
