Why Star Wars 7×7 Is the Perfect Podcast for You

You love Star Wars. You love podcasts. And if you’re anything like me, you either have difficulty finding time to listen to long podcasts, or your favorite podcast doesn’t put out new episodes often enough. Or both!

You’ve come to the right place. I have a good feeling about that.

Star Wars 7×7 is Rebel-rousing fun for everyday Jedi, at least 7 minutes a day, 7 days a week. It’s a space for you to indulge your love of Star Wars in bite-sized chunks, and to celebrate the joy of being a Star Wars fan in this very exciting time.

The podcast launched on July 7, 2014 with four episodes, and has been published at least once daily ever since. Bonus episodes for special events (i.e. movie releases, trailer breakdowns, Force Friday, Star Wars Celebration) have meant two episodes per day on several occasions.

Star Wars 7×7 covers news about Star Wars movies, books, TV shows, events, games, comics, trivia, and more. It also features analysis, in-depth discussions, reviews, interviews, and connects the pieces of the Star Wars story unfolding across multiple media platforms.

Past interviewees include:

Lucasfilm employees (Justin Bolger, Social Media Strategist; Matt Martin, Story Group; Michael Siglain, Lucasfilm Publishing; Kevin Yost, Senior Editor)

Star-Wars-focused journalists (Anthony Breznican for Entertainment Weekly; Eric Goldman, IGN Executive Editor; Amy Ratcliffe for Nerdist, StarWars.com, Star Wars Insider, and more; Chris Taylor, Mashable)

Star Wars-related creatives (Tricia Barr, Adam Bray, Chris Clarke, David Collins, Jason Fry, Rod Gillies, Cole Horton, Brian Jay Jones, Travis Langley, Kemp Remillard, Cass Sunstein, Jordan White)

Star Wars podcasters and vloggers (Meg Humphrey, Tim McMahon, Chris Pirillo, Bobby Roberts, Alex Robinson and Pete the Retailer, Sarah Woloski)

Show host Allen Voivod has been interviewed on a number of different media outlets. See the Press page for a collection of those appearances.

The podcast has been downloaded in more than 130 countries, and has included live and pre-recorded shows from Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, Star Wars Celebration Europe, Force Friday midnight events, and Star Wars movie premieres.

    My son and I listen to your podcast every day as we drive home from school. You do a great job and we love your daily trivia question!

      Thank you for the kind words, Ari, I really appreciate it. And that’s exactly the scenario that got me into podcasting in the first place!
