The ForceCast, billed as the official podcast of the “Star Wars” websites theforce.net and rebelscum.com, comes out every Friday. It can be found at forcecast.net and on iTunes. (It also airs at 1 p.m. every Sunday on WJJG 1530 AM.)
“There’s a big ‘Star Wars’ convention every year called ‘Star Wars Celebration,’ and that’s where I often get some great interviews,” McInerney said. “Mark Hamill is always a fantastic interview — he tells great stories and is still really into the whole thing. I liked talking to Carrie Fisher, too.”
McInerney and his wife, radio personality Wendy Snyder, have two sons, ages 9 and 13. Both are “Star Wars” fans, though McInerney said their passion for the films doesn’t come close to his.
“I try not to hit them over the head with it,” he said. “I love that so many younger kids are fans, though for many of them, it’s the (computer-animated television series) ‘Clone Wars’ that hooked them. But I think there’s something unique about being a fan for those of us who were there when it all started. I mean, I can actually remember a world without ‘Star Wars.’”
