This is no doubt the podcast you’ve been waiting months for: an explanation of where the hell the Unified Republic of Stars podcast has been all this time and why it went on an unexpected break.

Well… for those of you who have been patient enough to keep this in your feed the whole time, this will explain everything.

But, for those who don’t have the patience, fear not. The gist is that the URS podcast will be back starting next Sunday night. So… following your Game of Thrones party, you’ll have something about a fictional republic in space to listen to while cleaning up.

As always, you can contact me at, on Twitter at @republicofstars or on Facebook by visiting the Unified Republic of Stars page.

Special thanks to Darren Solomon for the music in this week’s episode (and moving forward!) and to Ryan Houser of the band Slim Wray for the theme.
