Beltway Banthas: Star Wars, Politics & More

Jun 2, 2016

Welcome back to another episode of Beltway Banthas! On today's episode we discuss the newest edition to Star Wars canon, Star Wars: Bloodline by Claudia Gray. This is a book in between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens that gives us a view of Leia's political career in this time. SPOILERS will be discussed. If you are going to read the book and don't want it spoiled, tune in another time. What are the politics of the Republic? How can we view the problems of the Republic as similar to our own? Do these controversies sound familiar? You can follow the author on Twitter @ClaudiaGray Our ending music is brought to you by Jonas Sees In Color, a NC band and friends of this show. Their original song inspired by Star Wars cantina bands is called "El Cantina De La Revolucion" You can check them out here: GREAT band and worth listening to.
