Been listening for five years, and these guys have consistently delivered insightful content. If you ever need a dose of Star Wars news and reactions, SWU is there for you. They’re honest about their opinions but also try to look at things from multiple angles. Just inject more Percy the Pufferpig into the show and we are good! #PotatoWatch
