EP XVII: Built On Hope


Stephen and Swara dig into the results of the 2016 election with guest Bobby Roberts! In the final days and hours of the elections, Star Wars references, memes and jokes abounded as Americans digested what they saw on the news. In this episode, Beltway Banthas seeks to understand why this happens and much more.

This 2016 election season has been nothing short of exhausting. For some, the results of the 2016 election might be more troubling than the process that got us to this point. In this episode of Beltway Banthas, we unload all the feelings we have about the outcome and what it means, in the context of our Star Wars fandom. Star Wars teaches us about democracy, the troubles with it, and it also teaches us how to stand in the face of oppression and seemingly insurmountable odds. Are you a rebel? What does that mean in culture, politics, and Star Wars? Force Ghost Bobby Roberts joins the show to help us sort through it all.



Episode XI: Make Star Wars Great Again ft. Riley Blanton

Welcome back to another installment of Beltway Banthas! This week in the world of Star Wars we all got to experience the amazing trailer for the upcoming Rogue One film. In this weeks episode we dive into the politics of Nostalgia. We discuss the polarization between original fans and prequel fans and how that relates to our politics today. With the help of special guest Riley Blanton of the Star Wars Report, we pose questions regarding the greatness of America and it’s connection to our galaxy far, far away.
