I love Holly from Stuff You Missed In History Class, and this is a great podcast. The ONLY caveat I have is that these hosts NEVER review anything they don't love 100%. I'm aware that the "haters" online are a pestilence, and I'm glad these guys don't have that tendency, but seriously, you have no negative opinions of ANYTHING star wars related? Criticizing anything in the Star Wars universe ISN'T trolling, guys. I just listened to the 1 year anniversary episode for the Last Jedi, and they spent more time trolling the trolls than actually analyzing the film. It was pretty exhausting to listen to. . . .
The discussions and topics are pretty good BUT...the 2 hosts have terrible verbal crutches that make it unlistenable. Bryan begins every other sentence with âYea, no...â and Holly nervously laughs at the end of her speaking. She laughs at things that arenât even meant to be funny. Just awkward laughter. Both of these crutches that the hosts use make the podcast unlistenable and extremely distracting. Their knowledge of Star Wars is great but they need to âair checkâ themselves to become better broadcasters. After about a year of trying to listen, Iâll pass on this podcast. There are far more professional sounding Star Wars podcasts out there.
Great SW show! Answers questions you didnât know you had. And, you get to know the hosts so well they feel like your friends. Plus, theyâre great at interacting with the guests and fans!!
This podcast was good and fun until you realized that everything they talk about has a social issue pinned in somehow. I listen to Star Wars podcasts and revel in the fandom to get away from the craziness of the real world and this podcast just wants to throw Star Wars into the thick of it. Pulling issues out of thin air, alienating part of the fan base. My recommendation, stay away from this one. I followed them for a while and tried to put up with it but wound up emailing them offering my opinions on how they are ruining Star Wars and the fandom by making it about social issues that arenât there and they didnât even reply back to me. I subsequently unsubscribed. I recently resubscribed to see how the pod was doing and they are just as bad if not worse than they were. Sorry guys nothing personal, I just donât like how you go about looking at Star Wars through a social justice looking glass.
What can I say, Full of Sith is an awesome podcast for any Star Wars fan. It's the great hosts and great content that will keep you coming back for more each and every time! - Recommended by @starwarstime
Here's the thing - this is a good podcast (hence the 4-star rating). It's typically one of the most insightful SW podcasts around and I try and listen to every episode. Having said that, there are two things that grate my nerves on almost every listen. First, Bryan is ALWAYS right, at least he thinks he is. Although he's obviously very passionate and informed, often times he's way too bullish in the way he goes about it. Second, the female host is really annoying. And I know that sounds harsh, but her voice is horrendous. Like terrible. But again, the show gets a high rating despite these two persistent issues, which is a tribute to the planning, knowledge, and guests that appear.
This was once an interesting and insightful podcast, but for the past year it has gotten steadily worse. Their topic selection has been weird, and their tangents have been downright bizarre (a recent episode featured a 10 minute discussion on which obscure characters they would like to see printed on a dress). Mike and Holly are enjoyable, usually. Bryan used to be worth listening to for his knowledge of the Star Wars universe, but he has become so pretentious that I couldnât take it anymore. I kept giving the show a chance, remembering how good it used to be, but finally unsubscribed after their âOne Year of the Last Jediâ episode, in which they opened talking about how they were going to focus on positivity, and ended up spending a good portion of the show trashing people that didnât like the movie. It was actually painful to listen to, mostly because thatâs all theyâve been doing for a while now. They have a weekly show, but rarely do they say anything new anymore. They pretend to be openminded and thoughtful (and probably believe they are) but are actually very closed to opinions that do not fall into a narrowly defined viewpoint. Sorry Full of Sith, you used to be good. I really hope you stop believing your own hype, and take a good, long, hard look at your show. Iâll look in on you in a year and see how youâre doing.
I love this podcast! Been listening for about a year and I always look forward to listening every week; keep it up!
Love the super-knowledgeable hosts and the wide-range of SW topics. A podcast I always look forward to!
Its not a bad podcast. These are Star Wars fans talking about Star Wars but unfortunately arent willing to look at it with a critical eye. Like at all. Which makes for bad conversation when they are trying to refute peoples displeasure with The Last Jedi but arent willing to actually listen to the criticism. I also feel like the conversation is usually very shallow and topics devolve to âits amazingâ âits lovelyâ âits heavenâ or âit made me cry for the fortieth timeâ. I like to go a little deeper into my Star Wars, however, if you just want your love of Star Wars to be positively reinforced this is probably the podcast for you.
I love Star Wars but canât keep up with everything the way I used to. This podcast is wonderful for keeping up to date on the latest coolness. The hosts are lovely and very experienced researchers, so their criticism and analysis on Star Wars is a real delight.
Mike the Pilot, Bryan Young and Holly Frey bring a deep authentic love of Star Wars. Their differing points of view often lead to thoughtful discussions that challenge the way you understand the galaxy. This is a great podcast to stay up-to-date on Star Wars news! They have excellent connections to get the best interviews! They are a great podcast for every generation as they foster an acceting, inclusive community!
Mike, Holly and Bryan - Dream podcast team!!! thank you all for what you do.
This podcast is like if the Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons was PC. The hosts know what theyâre talking about when it comes to Star Wars but it seems like every two episodes they start bringing up some sort of political crusade that loosely connects to Star Wars. Pretty insufferable when they do that.
Boring podcast. Comes across poorly toward fans that don't have his political point of view. Very condesending! I would go as far as to say toxic! Often makes back handed comments. They seems to tow the company line. Do not seem to offer alternate points of view. Most of all, it is just plan boring. Keep Bobby off. The guy is toxic,and loves the sound of his own voice way to much!
I found this podcast just after The Force Awakens came out and I have been listening every week for nearly 3 years now. I eagerly anticipate the insightful conversations between Tha Mike Pilot, Bryan Young, and Holly Frey ... thankful for their positive outlook and perspectives that have occasionally encouraged me to look at the films and other media through a different lens. All in all, I feel this podcast has enriched my Star Wars fandom and Iâm thankful to have it as a long time part of my life, past, present and in the future. Always recommended.
Used to love this show but recently they have been making EVERYTHING political.
The is my favorite Star Wars pod. Positive, insightful, and fun!
I used to love this show. It got me through a terrible night shift job, and I've listened to almost every episode. But in the last couple years the decline has been staggering. Amy's and Bobby's departures hit the show hard, and Holly's voice and especially laugh sound like nails going into my ears. Also, Bryan has gone from being a lovable prequel defender to a surly, passive aggressive shill. Mike, of course, is still the man. I miss the days of Amy and Bobby.
Gave it a shot for a few weeks but just isnât worth my time. Pretty dull analysis. There are several other SW podcasts that provide much more thought-out and insightful commentary.
