The ForceCast Comes to an End

TheForce.Net has posted the following in regards to the end of ForceCast, and the announcement of a new podcast, Rebel Force Radio.

Growing from the initial desire by Dustin, who manages content here at TheForce.net to have a podcast presence, the ForceCast has dominated Star Wars podcasting since its inception, and we are all very proud of it, from when it was Jason and Pete, to Jason and Jimmy, who stepped up and stepped out incredibly when the need arose, and of their fans, who are some of the biggest Star Wars fans in the world.

The guys are moving on though, to Rebel Force Radio, their own production. I’m sure there will be ample communication on this very soon.

Here at TheForce.net and Rebelscum.com, we wish them the very best of luck in the new endeavor.

Additionally, the content created to date will still be archived and available, and Jedi Journals from Jay and Chris, will continue to be produced and available. 

As a listener of the ForceCast, I’m glad to hear Jason and Jimmy will be continuing to podcast, and I’m looking forward to Rebel Force Radio. We’ll post more news as it becomes available.
