Black Series is a laid back, “Wayne’s World”-esque show that focuses on Star Wars and not necessarily the news on the franchise. It’s more about fandom and bringing people in the fan community together. It is hosted weekly by Alex (@alex_backes) and Steve (@RexManning), two cool dudes in SoCal that both met through Second City and bonded over hockey and Star Wars. Already 4 episodes into their series, they are growing quickly in the fan community and their show is well received by many. They have already had guests on from the infamous Steele Saunders of the Steele Wars podcast (Ep. 3) and Emmy nominated writer of Key and Peele: Alex Rubens (Ep. 4). Don’t take our word for it! Check out their first four episodes here.
