The Resistance Broadcast: Episode 1!

The Resistance BroadcastComing to you from the far reaches beyond the outer rim, Star Wars 7 News proudly presents the first episode The Resistance Broadcast. In the coming weeks and months we will be bringing you in depth discussion of all things Star Wars. We’ll dive deep into film news and spoilers, TV, Comics, toys, and anything else Lucasfilm can dream up. With our esteemed host Darth Lexor Kai and a rotating list of knowledgeable contributors, we’ll debate popular theories from the Cantina, talk about recent breaking Star Wars news, and maybe even break some news ourselves.



The first episode has a great lineup of content and contributors. Darth Lexor Kai discusses the announcements of D23 with Catina Comic Guy Kyle and yours truly, Rebo. But stay tuned for the second half where Cantina staff members Pomojema and BlueStreaking talk about last week’s big leaked image of Luke Skywalker and then break some news with a Resistance Broadcast exclusive as they discuss information SW7News has obtained on the appearance of an as yet unseen character from The Force Awakens! (from 29:10 min.)

He is definitely not a cyborg. 🙂

    So whats the breaking news? I don’t have time to listen to pod casts but can surf net at work.

  • August 20, 2015 at 8:37 pm

    Can anyone sum up the reveal? I’m in a place where I can read this but can’t listen to it. *cough*work*cough*

    • August 20, 2015 at 8:43 pm

      Not much really. They just describe a photo of MVS in character.

      • August 20, 2015 at 11:57 pm

        Finally got a chance to listen. So… for the most part just like we imagined from the concepts we’ve seen, with a possible Jedi or PT Jedi-esque flair?

  • August 20, 2015 at 8:42 pm

    I can’t get the podcast. Not sure if its the site or my work’s antiqueted internet explorer

    • August 20, 2015 at 8:46 pm

      Yeah, its my works IE9. This sucks

  • August 20, 2015 at 8:44 pm

    What’s up with the dude that sounds like he’s asking one long sing-songy question when he talks? lol It’s freaking me out.

    • August 20, 2015 at 9:45 pm

      he sounds like one of those who overcome severe stuttering by kind of “singing” when they talk. Its weird but some can trick the brain that way.

      i could be totally wrong though and he just has a goofy way of talking 🙂

    • August 20, 2015 at 9:51 pm

      Curious as to which of us you’re referring to.

      • August 20, 2015 at 9:58 pm

        Pretty sure it’s me. I was sort of shocked by the way my intonation goes up at the end of each sentence. Never noticed that about myself. Something to work on.

        • August 20, 2015 at 10:10 pm

          The comment was by no means intended to be mean-spirited…in fact I feel really bad for for mentioning it. Just something I found to be humorous, albeit a bit distracting. I feel like a jerk now.

          • August 20, 2015 at 11:13 pm

            No worries. I sounded weird. It was freaking me out too. 🙂

          • August 21, 2015 at 2:03 am

            Hey it doens’t matter 😀 it was a nice conversation and I’d love to hear more podcasts!

        • August 21, 2015 at 7:39 am

          This guys voice, the way he seems to always be asking a question, ruined it for me. It drove me batty- i had to turn it off after 10 minutes. What a shame. Here, have some more question marks since you seem to love them so much..


          • August 28, 2015 at 5:38 am

            Who that? Guy who’s always? Asking questions? It’s really? Annoying? If you have a speech impediment? Then I apologize? But otherwise? Change your intonation? Please?

            My? Head is bobbing UP AND down ? AS I AM? listeNING? To this PODcasT?

            Is that? A quesTION? Or A stateENT?

        • August 25, 2015 at 8:19 am

          “High rising terminal”. Pretty common in places like Australia.

  • August 20, 2015 at 8:46 pm

    How spoiler heavy will these episodes be? I don’t want plot spoilers as much as possible, discussing characters looks, ships, speculation is cool but not heavy spoiler discussion.

    Should I stay away?

    • August 20, 2015 at 9:01 pm

      This is just a description of a photo of Max Von Sydow’s character.

    • August 20, 2015 at 11:20 pm

      we will be sure to warn you prior to any spoiler content I promise.

  • August 20, 2015 at 8:51 pm

    Awesome! Ive been dying for a new talk show! Glad you guys are putting one! I cant seem to listen though! This is the error message i see where the media ought to be…

    “Secure Connection Failed

    An error occurred during a connection to Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response. (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_invalid_signing_cert)

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.”

  • August 20, 2015 at 9:01 pm

    Where did they say Rogue One takes place 5 years before A New Hope? That would place it exactly around the time frame of SW Rebels. From what I’ve heard so far, it was just stated that it takes place before ANH without a specific timeframe. In fact, if they are stealing the Death Star plans that would suggest it takes place weeks, if not days, before ANH.

    • August 20, 2015 at 9:18 pm

      It should end about one hyperspace jump before A New Hope.

      • August 20, 2015 at 10:02 pm

        i basically said the same thing on reddit yesterday! I think it would be cool if it led seamlessly into the opening of a new hope!

  • August 20, 2015 at 9:27 pm


  • August 20, 2015 at 9:29 pm

    This was epic

  • August 20, 2015 at 9:37 pm

    direct soundcloud link pls

  • August 20, 2015 at 10:09 pm

    whats up with that guy’s voice? I can’t listen to this.

    • August 21, 2015 at 2:58 am

      Ok but dude, it’s free. You can just take it or leave it.

  • August 20, 2015 at 10:09 pm

    Is this on itunes yet?

  • August 20, 2015 at 10:13 pm

    I like the show. But what’s up with the voice that sounds like everything has a question mark at the end of it?

    • August 21, 2015 at 12:13 am

      Do you guys even read the comments before you post. It has already been posted a couple times and put to rest. No need to pile on the guy.

  • August 20, 2015 at 10:16 pm

    Nice surprise and great pod cast! I’m Glad we have a pod cast from the home team sw7n crew!

  • August 20, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    The cow just keeps giving, eh Disney?

  • August 20, 2015 at 10:21 pm

    Rebo, you are amazing, don’t listen to the haters.

  • August 20, 2015 at 10:25 pm

    Part of them mystique of Star Wars was that I was allowed to imagine what other worlds and events existed in the same universe as Luke Skywalker and friends. Now it is being drawn out for me… I don’t give a flying fuck about all of this non-sense. Just give me episode 7 and the rest will follow. Starting to get worried about the future of Star Wars. Complacency will set it – it always does. Disney, heed the warning of the episode IV novelization: But as often happens when wealth and power pass beyond the admirable and attain the awesome, there appear those evil ones with greed to match.

  • August 20, 2015 at 10:55 pm

    Seeing that photo above, I still don`t understand why they chose a police biker look, for the rebel trooper uniform. The empire/first order get such cool looking armored uniform designs, but the rebels got a police biker uniform. There`s a chance to make up for this in TFA hopefully. The resistance would surely have enough resources now, enough to design some cool looking uniforms for their fighters to wear. Maybe even lightly armored.

    • August 20, 2015 at 11:08 pm

      I agree, in some ways. I used to think these uniforms were the worst, but over time my feelings have changed as I now think they give off such a classic 70s Star Wars vibe. The helmet is bulky and ugly, sure. But that shape has come to remind me of the first scene in the films and universe I love. Plus, come on, they are Rebel nerds!! If they looked cooler than the empire, no one would fear the Empire.

    • August 20, 2015 at 11:24 pm

      the art for the cover was done by our friend of the Cantina Eli. 🙂

    • August 20, 2015 at 11:25 pm

      lol its an interesting idea.

  • August 20, 2015 at 11:34 pm

    Good episode, fellas. Can’t wait for the next one!

    And I like the way you talk, Rebo.

  • August 20, 2015 at 11:35 pm

    Now, it needs to



  • August 20, 2015 at 11:35 pm

    MVS is sounding more and more like an old Kanan Jarrus. Not trying to beat a dead horse but…

    • August 21, 2015 at 12:26 am

      I hope not…

    • August 25, 2015 at 12:41 pm

      I think he’s Owen Lars. There was never any definitive confirmation that he was one of the charred bodies. Perhaps he had gone to look for Luke, and the bodies were Beru and, I dunno, a neighbour who had come to visit. Perhaps Owen was then captured and ended up in an imperial prison somewhere, it’s not a huge storytelling leap.

      He fits the profile age wise – MVS is 85 – so if the character is the same age he’d have been about 50 during ROTJ, about 45 during ANH, 26 during ROTS and about 23/24 during AOTC – all of that fit’s with the character of Owen Lars and with the rumour that he’s a PT character.

      If you want to surprise people with this reveal then it makes sense that you go for a character, that because he’s assumed dead, most people won’t really consider.

  • August 21, 2015 at 12:16 am

    You guys all rocked! And Rebo … your voice is unique (sounded good to me)

  • August 21, 2015 at 12:56 am

    Interesting that this reveal of MvS’ appearance happens a day after the revelation in the comments section that Max von Sydow probably is playing Montross….

    Controlled leaking?

    • August 21, 2015 at 1:25 am

      Nah, that has been up on the Disney Wiki for awhile now (a month or more). I tried to see if it was mentioned anywhere and stuck it in a fresh thread to get the info out.

    • August 21, 2015 at 1:46 am

      we recorded on Monday, and I hadnt read that article yet. no controlled leaks. 🙂

      • August 21, 2015 at 2:48 am

        Okay guys. Drat. Well, interesting it has been up on the Disney Wiki for so long…

        Is that a Wiki everyone can edit? Is it moderated by Disney staff?

        Interesting that it is a mix of the alleged codename (“Vicar”) and the apparent real name (Montross).

  • August 21, 2015 at 1:47 am

    Can someone post a transcript? I’m deaf and cannot listen to the podcast. I, and many others who depend on Accessibility would be grateful for any help with providing a text transcript.


  • August 21, 2015 at 4:08 am

    Here is a idea why don’t you post the Max Von Sydow image after the podcast instead of giving it to a artist.

    If that does not work post it on another site such as 4chan/Reddit/

  • August 21, 2015 at 7:00 am

    Couldn’t find it in iTunes 🙁

    • August 21, 2015 at 12:23 pm

      We’re waiting to get approved. That’s normal, it’s our first episode. We will be soon there, also on Stitcher.

  • August 21, 2015 at 8:40 am

    Rebo, your good. Don’t change a thing.

  • August 21, 2015 at 2:52 pm

    Hey guys, LOVE your site, and the constant Awesome updates! This is my SW news website of choice. Congrats on making a podcast, you’ll work out the kinks. I’m not going anywhere, but I am excited to see what you guys develop into. I know you will channel the Force. Thank You for putting forth the time and effort to compile all the “snippets” that you guys do. You have a fan in me, and look forward to all the awesomeness to come!!!!

  • August 21, 2015 at 11:04 pm

    Great podcast. Lots of good content. I hate to make someone feel self-conscious, because we all have our own unique peculiarities, whether it’s in how we speak or whatever, but to be completely forthright – I found that intonation to be very very distracting. Like, I couldn’t focus on the podcast after awhile and just kept hearing that cadence and intonation. If that’s how you speak, that’s how you speak. I’m sure people are familiar with Diane Rehm, one of the biggest radio interviewers around. Her voice is very idiosyncratic and people often find it impossible to listen to. I felt the same way when I first listened to her, but eventually got over it and found that uniqueness interesting. I dunno. Maybe I’d get used to this too. Just wanted to comment on it because it really stood out to me.

  • August 22, 2015 at 1:50 am

    FANTASTIC! I’ve been waiting for you guys to get this going. Now quick, I call dibs on a guest segment! One show, “The Dark Side with Drama” where I discuss all we know so far about the Dark Side in the upcoming films 😀 I’m sure I can squeeze it in with work sometime, I’ll send you guys an outline :p

  • August 22, 2015 at 8:08 pm

    Not trying to be insulting but one of these guys, sounds like everything he says is a question.

    • August 23, 2015 at 1:44 am

      Thanks for bringing that up, you are only the seventh person to say that.

  • August 24, 2015 at 10:58 pm

    Ben? Ben Kenobi?

  • August 25, 2015 at 12:42 am

    Was the sketch based on the photo of mvs you guys were discussing last week ?

  • August 25, 2015 at 4:40 am

    Sketch of MVS in TFA, FTW!
    TFA, please get here PDQ!
    TFA will be better than TPM, AOTC, ROTS, ANH, TESB, & ROTJ!
    C-3PO, R2-D2, & BB-8 will rule!
    IG-88 is cool, IMHO!
    Disagree? STFU!

    Rebel Troopers have good trigger discipline.

  • August 26, 2015 at 12:54 am

    Max is playing Obi’s Force Ghost?

    That’s … actually kind of awesome. xD I mean look at him, that’s Obi-Wan.

  • August 26, 2015 at 4:46 am

    That one guy is so hard to listen to .. his voice goes up and down more often than a pornstar’s ass

    • September 2, 2015 at 6:52 pm

      I just assumed he was Canadian:)

    New Star Wars Movies Announced as Disney Enters Agreement to Acquire Lucasfilm Ltd. The long conjectured third Star Wars trilogy has kept fans guessing for decades, and may even have a few numerologists working on their mysteries.

    That is so awesome that you guys started this podcast! Love it. Keep up the good work and may the Force be with you!
