Over 1,000 Star Wars fans spent the last month voting for their favorite Star Wars podcast and today we’re excited to announce Wealth of Geeks’s Top 10 Star Wars Podcasts, as voted on by fans.
May the Fourth is a very special day in the Star Wars community, something almost as special as Life Day. So what better day than today to celebrate the hard work and commitment of hundreds of Star Wars fans that come together to create your favorite podcasts?
Star Wars fans had a very difficult choice to make over the past two months. First, they could only nominate one of the favorite podcasts, and then they could only vote for one of them. I don’t know about you, but I listen to a lot of Star Wars podcasts! So it’s important to remember that this Top 10 Star Wars Podcast Award is just for fun.
Everyone who produces Star Wars content deserves a round of applause for the time and work that goes into creating content that others love to consume. So regardless of whether you were nominated or placed in the Top 10, you deserve a round of applause for celebrating your love for Star Wars.
Without you there would be no Star Wars community.
