Axanar: The Official Podcast
31: The State of Axanar

An Axanar Deep Dive with “The Jew and the Gentile.”

It’s been a busy month for the Axanar crew. With the success of the Indiegogo campaign, work is well underway on production of the full Axanar film. Ares Digital has launched. Blu-rays are shipping. And, apparently, some media outlets aren’t happy about it.

In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Adam Feuerberg and Andy Maiorano, the team behind “The Jew and the Gentile” podcast, to delve into a wide range of topics related to Axanar. From the Wrap article to budget realities, animosity in fandom to how the industry is changing, if there’s something that’s been on your mind about Axanar chances are it’s covered in this double-length episode.
