Hiatus. The dark times. Weekdays come and go without any new additions to the SWM feed. Fans despair, and head over to the Star Wars Minute Listener's Society to ease the pain. The hosts try to help by releasing extras every few weeks, and SWM:WE keeps the Patreons going, but really nobody's happy until we're in the full flow of a season.
The dates and lengths of each hiatus are in the table below.
