Join Steve as he reviews the first episode of The Empire Strikes Back radio drama, ‘Freedom’s Winter’.

Before Steve breaks down the episode, he is joined by very special guest Mark Newbold from Fantha Tracks, where they discuss the radio dramas, The Phantom Menace nearly 20 years on and lots of other things all Star Wars related. (Some Star Trek too)

Then Steve resumes his usual incoherent ramblings by giving a brief history of the Empire radio drama and then reviewing the first episode.

Steve talks about setting the darker tone for this instalment in the Star Wars saga, as well as some naff comedy involving Threepio and another droid.
