Path to Kenobi Part 1 • Movies and S1 of Clone Wars

Kenobi is coming out soon and we’re getting ready! Today we’re covering Obi-Wan in the movies and season 1 of the Clone Wars TV show, giving you a primer to get ready for the upcoming show!

Famed Star Wars Agnostic Matt Carroll of the MCU joins the show, giving me the chance to demonstrate once and for all that Star Wars is a lot more than cool ships and laser swords.

Let's talk Star Wars! Join the Ethical Panda Matthew Fox for an ongoing conversation about the wealth of Star Wars movies and TV shows, both the old and the new. We'll explore TV shows like The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars. We'll cover every movie, and we may even dive into the vast catalog of books, video games, and other media. Who needs a canon when you’ve got interesting stories?

During the strike we are focusing on books, fan content and other star wars stories not directly connected to struck media.

Star Wars Universe Podcast episode 209

Master & Apprentice

I talk to Riki Hayashi about “Master & Apprentice,” a Star Wars novel about Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s master-apprentice relationship, with Dooku flashbacks.

Inquisitor: Rise of the Red Blade

What leads a Jedi to the dark side? How did the Clone Wars hinder the Jedi in aiding padawans, and how did Palpatine exploit this? We discuss Delilah S. Dawson’s “Inquisitor: Rise of the Red Blade.”

Cosplay with Guest Erin McGowan

Erin McGowan joins me to talk about Cosplay. We talk about the community, how to become a part of it, and some of the questions it raises about fandom and how we interact with the stories we love and each other.
