The Force Has a New Home - RebelForce Radio Debuts 1/19/13
My favorite Star Wars podcasters Jason Swank and Jimmy Mac have left The ForceCast podcast in order to blaze a new path with RebelForce Radio. This new production is set to launch January 19 over iTunes as well as their website - rebelforceradio.com.
George Lucas’ galaxy far, far away is about to get a lot closer as Jason Swank and Jimmy “Mac” McInerney (The ForceCast) present REBELFORCE RADIO, a new, independently produced weekly podcast featuring news, reviews, celebrity interviews, contests, and more from the ever expanding Star Wars universe.
Hosted by podcasting veterans Jason Swank and Jimmy Mac (The ForceCast), RebelForce Radio will provide information and entertainment to a growing world-wide audience of Star Wars fans. The podcast will be broadcast LIVE Tuesday nights via the show’s website and released widely on Fridays for on-demand streaming and download. RebelForce Radio will also be heard Sunday afternoons at 2:00 PM Central on Chicago’s 1530 WCKG AM.
“We have always prided ourselves on our ability to deliver fun and exciting content to Star Wars fans worldwide. Our production standards of the past will be very obvious as we move forward with RebelForce Radio, as will our passion, which we share with our listeners. It’s not the end of an era, but the beginning. The best is yet to come!,” said Jimmy Mac, the show’s producer and co-host.

“The unintended consequence of the show has been that we are able to go places that not every fan can, and talk to the people who actually make Star Wars. It challenges us to do the kind of show that we would want to listen to,” said show co-host, Jason Swank.
RebelForce Radio premieres Saturday, January 19 featuring Supervising Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Dave Filoni. A short promo was released earlier this week and debuted at #1 for the TV/Film category in iTunes Podcasts. A video version of the promo is available on the official RebelForce Radio Facebook page, which has already generated over 1,200 “likes” since its launch three days ago.
Listeners will soon be able to stream and/or download RebelForce Radio content on demand for free at rebelforceradio.com when the site launches later this month, or by subscribing via iTunes.
