Blah Wars: A Star Wars Podcast

Star Wars obsessives John Galantini and Jude Gay present 'Blah Wars'; a weekly podcast featuring news, debate, speculation and inappropriate banter. Jude has a blind love for anything bearing the Star Wars logo, whereas John is a traditionalist who likes to pretend the prequels never happened and frequently goes off on one. Much anger in him, like his father. We would be honoured, if you would join us....

Two mates talking Star Wars. Expect strong language and inappropriate banter. Not safe for work (or Jude's mum).
