Rebel Force Radio: A New Star Wars Podcast From The Former Hosts Of The Forcecast

Cool new name? (Check). Cool new logo? (Check). Same great content and guests? (Check).

Jason Swank and Jimmy Mac, long time hosts of The Forcecast, the official podcast of and Rebelscum, and also hosts of The Forcecast's Clone Wars Roundtable podcast are embarking on a new adventure.

This Friday January 19, 2013 will see the debut of Rebel Force Radio.

The Forcecast was the 20 ton rancor of Star Wars podcasting, in many ways based on their access it was the closest thing to an officially sanctioned Lucasfilm podcast as we got.  Even if you didn't always enjoy Jimmy and Jason's shtick, their access to top personalities made The Forcecast a must listen to podcast for hardcore Star Wars fans.

I am pretty excited to find out the guys are breaking off on their own and starting their own podcast and website. Change is a natural part of life and I am sure this new podcast will be fun.  The conversations continue...

The official website isn't up and running yet, but you can check out their Facebook page. Give them a "Like."



  1. I've been a long time fan of the guys - in fact right from the beginning - and I gotta say that the news actually floored me when I first read about it. That said, I love the guys - even when I don't always agree with them - and I am just so thankful they are going to be continuing together.

  2. Wishing Jason and Jimmy the best in their new endeavour!

  3. I liked that they have no time limit for each show. IMO the best shows went over 2hrs.

  4. new name? Well, it's fine I suppose, but certainly not new. Republic Forces Radio Network has been a Star Wars podcast running for 4 years. Cool new logo? Well, if you like the a Mario-ish mushroom mashed up with the Punisher logo--SURE!!!
