Brews and Blasters is THE Star Wars Podcast Party!

Welcome to a different sort of Star Wars podcast. Born from the discussions between two friends at a local pub in the historic town of Salem, Massachusetts, Brews and Blasters is your chance to kick back and enjoy everything about that galaxy far, far away.

Each episode, hosts Chris Salton and Joe Tavano sit down to do what they'd be doing anyway–talk about all things Star Wars, tell some stories, and have a good time. Join them as they share their love for Star Wars, the most obscure Star Wars characters, Boston’s North Shore, 1980s pop culture and delicious food, and occasionally talk to fascinating people–and friends, like an anthropomorphic packet of crystallized lime.

The Star Wars Party starts now! It's time for Brews and Blasters.

You guys have left voicemails, emails, zmails and all other forms of communication, so we're handing over the mics to you! Well, that's not entirely true. We still have to talk about some sick General Grievous cosplay, a timeshare in hyperspace, Norm MacDonald in The Mandalorian, and of course, That documentary...
