This week is all about looking back at the year that was...2013. In the past 12 months, we've seen tons of action in the Star Wars universe including many highs and lows for fandom. Director Kyle Newman joins us fresh off the set of his latest film Barely Lethal, to talk about all the big news from the Galaxy Far Far Away that broke in 2013. We also look back at the year of RebelForce Radio podcasting and more. Our 'Year-In-Review" shows often are our most opinionated and this year is no exception. In fact, this show was so big, it needed to be broken into 2 parts. So, wrap up your year with the first of our two-part Star Wars Year-In-Review show as RebelForce Radio remembers 2013! Have a safe and happy new year from your friends at RebelForce Radio!
