The Jedi, the Sith, and Good Ol’ Palps

Are the Sith merely mustache-twirling villains, or is there a method to their madness? Where did the Jedi go astray? Should emotions be restrained or fully embraced by a space wizard, and how did the Jedi and Sith codes shape one another? Jacob and Matthew dive into these questions with the assistance of friend and Star Wars Nerd Extraordinaire, Jonah Kellman.

Jonah is deeply invested in Star Wars, especially the extended universe. When he’s not passionately discussing the galaxy far, far away, he’s engaged in reading, playing video games, or immersing himself in worldbuilding. Find him on Facebook or as Muscratt across the internet.

Here are some of the books and other items we discussed on the show:

  • Darth Bane: The story of the creation of the modern Sith and the Rule of Two.
  • Darth Plagueis: The Sith who trained Emperor Palpatine.
  • Republic Commandos: Tales of clone soldiers.
  • Kenobi: The adventures of Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi during the years following the fall of the Republic.
  • The Clone Wars: The animated TV show that delves into the corruption of the Jedi and the fall of the Republic, offering a narrative much richer than the movies or any of the prequels.
Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
